Adopt Onyx at German Shepherd Rescue EliteOnyx came to @gsrescueelite just after Christmas from a pound in London. He had been left tied to a lamp post and was in a bad way being underweight and having a skin problem on his back. We believe he was about 2 years old.

Onyx was entire but now neutered. He is now microchipped and vaccinations started, and his skin has cleared up and his coat growing back nicely.

Onyx was very nervous when he first came in but is now learning to trust the staff at the kennels and got a twinkle back in his eyes. He does have an issue if grabbed by the collar, he will turn and snap, probably because of being tied up, but this can be worked with.

History unknown but we would not rehome him with children. Seems to enjoy the company of other dogs around him and has got on with all he has met. Would benefit from living with a confident, older female who could show him the ropes and keep him in line.

This lovely lad just need an experienced home to help him gain his confidence back in the big wide world and teach him to trust people again whilst respecting them.
