Rex originally came into rescue in April & was homed in September but came back into rescue this month.
Rex is not actually a GSD. He was described by his previous owners as a Belgian sort of German Shepherd. Looks to us like he's a Malinois (one of the varieties of Belgian Shepherd). They reckoned he was coming up to one year old but we think he's a bit younger.

His original owners reported that they couldn't cope with him because he was aggressive to anyone he came across. They'd tried to get rid of him by letting him loose several miles away, but he got back to their car before they did and hopped back in. They then tried to find a farmer to shoot him for them - nobody agreed to help, so eventually someone gave them Vigil's number. With that story there was no way Vigil could refuse to take him in.  

He arrived and appeared aggressive as they'd described, but after a couple of sessions, he settled down and is now calm and accepting of strangers.

It is thought his aggression was all fear related and there have not been any problems with him since. Once he has gained trust in someone he is really quite a soppy dog. He is good with other dogs and is learning how to walk on a lead.

Rex is now in foster with John in Chertsey, Surrey & has settled in really well as you can see.

He is a complete bundle of energy so an active home is a must and we think he would excel at obedience or agility.

If you can give him that perfect home please call John 01932 571268 or Sue Gibbons Sue Gibbons 01444 453302

Rex went back to kennels today with me and went on one of his favourite walks down by the canal with all the other rescue dogs, Here he is doing what he does best chilling out in the front seat of my van waiting to go back home,
