Stray eight-month-old puppy is desperately searching for new place to call home

After spending time on the streets, this little German shepherd is searching for a home where he can “zoom around with his toys”. Simba was taken in by Jerry Green Dog Rescue, in Nottingham, after being picked up as a stray – and is now ready to move in with new owners who can provide him with the attention he deserves.

A spokeswoman said: “He came into Jerry Greens as a stray so we do not have much history about his first eight months of life. “With him being a big boy, he is looking for a family who have experience with young large breeds who are happy to continue with his training so he can be the bestest boy ever.”

As Simba gets worried around other dogs, he would need to be the only pooch in the home. However, he can live with children in key stage four or above.

The statement adds: “He would love to have his own secure garden so he can zoom around with his toys, 6ft fences should be enough to keep him safe.

“He would love to have a new family who are around for the majority of the day, especially while he is settling in. The odd hour he should be alright but any longer and he will miss you too much.”

Jerry Green Dog Rescue has been working to transform the lives of abandoned and unwanted dogs for almost 60 years.

Founded by dog lover Jerry Green, the rescue centre opened its first site in North Lincolnshire in 1961.

Since then, another three sites have opened – one in South Yorkshire, East Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire.

This enables the dogs to move around each site if they’re unable to secure their forever home at their initial placement.

A spokeswoman said: “All dogs deserve a good life and a safe, loving home. We exist to provide a safe place for homeless dogs and to find new loving places for them to live.”

They stand by the motto: “Once a Jerry Green dog, always a Jerry Green dog.”
