UK GERMAN SHEPHERD RESCUE
UK German Shepherd Rescue - Rescuing & Rehoming German Shepherd Dogs & Puppies throughout the UK
Our Adoption Form
Woo came to our attention on Sunday 4th March 2019 as a report neglect case, the rescue offered to take Woo Woo into care to start immediate vetinary care.
So Woo Woo was collect from Thornton-Cleveleys in Lancashire and transported to our HQ kennels at Elswick.
After meeting and greeting all the staff Woo Woo was settled in her kennel while preparation were made for her veterinary appointment first thing Monday morning.
What we know about "Woo Woo"
Woo Woo is an 11 year old female German Shepherd
She is a retired military drug detection dog who retired to her handler sometime before 2016, two years ago her handler/former owner could no longer keep Woo Woo so she found a new owner and this is where all our neglect started.
In the last two years Woo Woo has never been for walk, never seen a vet or had any form of treatment for her skin ears or age related illnesses. The family couple both watched Woo Woo conditions worsen over the two years they owned her and did nothing, it took a kind person who was upset at seeing Woo Woo's condition worsen over time to report Woo Woo to us at the UK German Shepherd Rescue.
On Sunday 4th March Woo Woo was signed over to our rescue.

The vets have admitted Woowoo and are sedating her this morning. She’s a mess. Not only does she have muscle wastage ,demodectic mange, fleas, skin infection , infected skin warts , hip problems- she has chronic ear problems causing her to lose her balance .
She’s so distressed she had to be muzzled
Update from vets
Not good news I’m afraid- she has demodectic mange, skin infection, chronic ear infection etc etc but the most worrying is a large tumour in her mouth . Biopsy done & we wait for the results - vet did say it looks bad.
Woowoo really needs your prayers right now.
She’s had a medicated bath, ear treatments, nails clipped and most of the open sores have had the fur clipped away.
She was an angel the vet said
Vet bill so far £478.34
