Saphire – German Shepherd

German Shepherd
Female
Approx 1 year old
Arrived 14th March
Chesterfield Animal Centre

In Sapphire’s young life she was kept by a man who was already banned from keeping animals, he then “lent” her to someone else and then she was passed around, we dread to imagine the kind of treatment she had to endure. She was not in good condition when she arrived, very thin with bad skin. Sapphire is now the responsibility of our branch but under the care of Chesterfield RSPCA for rehoming. Sapphire is doing really well. She was quite nervous and worried when she first arrived, but has now settled in and is feeling much happier. She has gained weight and her skin is looking much better. She is now ready to find a wonderful new home!

She is a lovely girl who is very friendly and so far has got on well with other dogs. She will benefit from a quiet/steady home environment. She is quite stressed in kennels so it would be good to get her into a home as soon as possible. She is quite a typical shepherd so wouldn’t really be suited to a first time dog owner and may benefit from someone with GSD experience. She would need a home with adults only or children teenage and older. She may be ok with another dog if they are steady as she isn’t happy about dogs that are too full on with her. We would not place her in a home with cats. More information can be provided via Chesterfield RSPCA. http://www.chesterfield-rspca.org.uk/contact/
