The search is on to find a new home for one of SHAK’s dogs, who has found it hard to adjust to life in the charity’s kennels.

Keiser, a German shepherd, has been showing signs of stress, injuring his tail in the process.

Now, the guardian angels at SHAK are appealing to find loving new owners for this adorable pooch, described as handsome and an absolute star.

SHAK founder Stephen Wylie said: “We have had Keiser for a little while now, after a chequered start to life.

“He’s a big boy who has really stolen my heart after doing quite a lot of work with him over the last couple of weeks.

“However, Keiser was showing signs of stress in kennels, not unusual for a German shepherd, but unfortunately in his case it has resulted in him hurting the end of his tail by hitting it off the wall.

“The only solution to this problem is to find a home away from a kennel environment.

“He came home with me over the weekend and was an absolute star, both in the house and with the other dogs.

“It’s clear now that Keiser cannot go back to a kennel environment and so we begin the search to find him a home to call his own.

“We are looking for an experienced German shepherd home who can give this handsome boy the time and patience needed to put years in kennels behind him.”
