We are currently looking for a forever home for 'Hero' - one of our retiring German Shepherd / General Purpose Police Dogs.
More information is listed below, but firstly, please note the following :
All interested parties please submit your interest via the Re-Homing request form found on this site (or click below)
Any interested parties will be fully vetted (by Police means).
We will conduct a house visit to ensure suitable living conditions.
You must be sure that you are able to commit fully to the responsibilities and lawful requirements of dog ownership.
We WILL NOT re-home for purposes of security / guard dog work or breeding.
The dog will be neutered at our expense.
Hero will benefit from all available assistance linked to PawsUp (Durham Retired Police Dogs Benevolent Fund).
Information supplied by his current handler -
Hero will be 5 years old in October this year. He is a very affectionate dog who loves to be brushed and cuddled.
He can be quite vocal around other dogs initially but is generally very sociable once introduced, however he does not like cats !
He has never been around young children, so his reaction to this scenario is unknown.
Hero is very clean / house trained and despite being used to an outdoor kennel environment, he has also had lots of access to his handler's home, so will not be overwhelmed if he has to live indoors.
He is not huge, but despite his size he is a powerful dog but responds well to strong commands.
Ideally suited to a home that already has a dog or dogs that are not too dominant, or to previously experienced dog owners.
