Hello I’m Flint and I want to tell you about my move,
I have recently moved away from the farm and I’m now living with a family on the south coast. It’s very different from the farm, but I like it!
My new mum and dad are thrilled with how quickly I have settled in, I’ve been a very good boy, they say. I now live in a house in the city, I’ve adapted really well to this, the new smells and noises are great.
Now let me tell you, I struggled with stairs when I arrived and dad had to carry me up a few times, but everyone was kind and patient with me until I got used to them, now I’m up and down like a yoyo!!
I have a new best friend called Penny (she’s a hairy Basset) she is always with me and we play, eat and sleep together, I like her even when she tries to steal my dinner! I let her sometimes too! Penny has helped me settle and I look to her for most things.
I love walking and have done some great walks in the woods, fields, hills, streets and strangest of all a beach, I wasn’t keen on the stones to begin with but I like a paddle in the sea. I love playing fetch with my dad and I’m very quick, this makes dad happy as I always bring the ball back.
I am very good in the car and travelled 3 hours without a complaint or mess when travelling to my new home. I share the boot with my best friend Penny.
My new family all fuss me and cuddle me which I like very much as I love attention. My new extended family all think I’m great too and I visit them often. I’m a much loved boy!
I’m very good with other dogs but I’m a little wary of boisterous dogs I haven’t met.
Oh I forgot to mention in my new family I have two cats! These were very interesting to me on my first day, however I ignore them now like Penny does, that is until they move and then me and Penny chase them, He He!!!
My family only have nice things to say about me and say I have exceeded all their expectations.
Thank you Andrea for finding my new family for me, and they asked me to thank you too,
Lots of Woofs and Licks, Flint x
Hello! I have lived in my new home for seven months now and I love it here. At first I was very quiet but soon became the chattiest member of the family. I quickly became best friends with Norton and Harley who also lived at Glebe Von Wood for a while; they now live at Nana’s house up the road. Although I love walking over the fields and parks with a ball, my favourite walks are with Norton. I am sometimes a little unsure about other people but love to have cuddles with my friends and family. Off to play now. Lots of woofs. Autumn xx
Seeing Autumn at Glebe Von Wood was love at first sight. Since coming she came to live with us she has become the light of our lives. We walk almost every day with Lamby (her lamb toy) and a ball (which tend to last about 2 walks). She makes me smile everyday. When I arrive home from work we have our “mummy cuddles” then she tells me all about her day and what’s been going on in and around the house. She then turns into my favourite shadow while I do the chores until we sit down for Emmerdale and some more cuddles. You might think me mad but she is so very clever and can count! When we here the town hall bells Autumn knows we have to wait for 5 bells for dinner and 7 bells for Emmerdale, our very own genius J All in all Autumn is clever, funny, loving and a little nuts and we love her!

New Ruby arrived with our family last Monday.
She settled in very quickly and its as if we've had her for years!
She is great on and off the lead and gets constant compliments by everyone we meet.She absolutely loves fuss and would happily let us stroke and tickle her all day!....
Massive thanks to Andrea and her team for the obvious love they have given her and for allowing her to be part of our family!
Although Pixie has only been with us for a week, she is very much part of the family.
The other dogs - 2 male GSDs and my border collie girl absolutely adore her. Pixie is a very sociable, happy and well-balanced youngster with an inquisitive nature and a desire to please. Already very obedient, she is quick to learn and is enjoying all her new experiences. Pixie is beautiful, both in looks and nature and I'm very proud of her.
Thanks again for Pixie, I adore her!
Charlie has settled in a dream. You would think that he had been here all his life. We have nicknamed him Sir Charles as he is too posh to spend his days outdoors or in the kitchen with the others and has firmly ensconced himself in the day room with our head of pack, Katrina. Having him here has cheered Katrina back up again as she missed Jethro so much and had become very lethargic and withdrawn. He also suits his 'magic charm' name as all my girls have started to come in to season!!
To sum Charlie up I would say he is a most loving, gentle, laid-back boy and an absolute pleasure to have with us.
DeeDee went to her new home on December 27th, here's an update from her new family.
Dee Dee has settled in superbly well with us in just a short space of time. We have got her walking on the lead very nicely now after a few good training sessions. She is very responsive and a pleasure to be out with!
Rosa and Dee Dee get out on the fields and have a great time running around like loons.
She is also very patient with Rosa who sometimes just won't leave her alone when she wants to doze.
It seams like she has been here for ages. One of the family now.
We were recommended by another dog breeder to contact Andrea at Glebe Von Wood due to her excellent reputation as a German Shepherd breeder. We initially approached Andrea to buy a puppy but in doing so we saw the most beautiful one year old white German Shepherd called Lilly who Andrea was re-homing. We simply fell in love with Lilly and she has since become our beautiful loving companion. We have had Lilly for 7 months now and she is the most adorable, loving dog that we could of wished for. Every now and again, older dogs come available at Glebe Von Wood and I would strongly recommend that you consider having one as your companion. We are so incredibly happy with Lilly that we have decided to get her a brother or sister from Andrea later on this year.
New Ruby initially came to us after her original owners asked for her to be studded with Charlie in 2009.
We have 2 girls from that litter, Retta & River.
New Ruby's owners unexpectedly had to re-home her and that's where we came to have this beautiful girl. However Ruby's agility skills were a little too good for me, and we often found her out in the yard when she shouldn't have been!!!!
New Ruby is now a companion girl for a lady on the south coast. Ruby has been spayed and is leading a great life near the beach.
Andrea has been kind enough to re-home two of her lovely girls with me in the past. In May 2010 I collected Navara on behalf of my parents, but after a short car journey and an afternoon together I could not leave her and we have been together ever since. Myself and Navara have a very special bond and she never leaves my side. She is the most loving girl that you can imagine, such a great companion to all of my family (including my two boys and wife).
After a couple of months my parents had two girls from Rhani's second litter. Andrea knew that I always wanted a second girl in my own family and kindly offered Rhani to me for rehoming. Both myself and Andrea knew that Rhani would be the perfect match for Navara and I am so pleased to say that we could not have been more right. Rhani is a beautiful girl with so much character and together they really bring out the best in each other.
They are very loving half sisters that always look out for each other. They lie all over each other when resting and are constantly running side by side. Rhani is the more outgoing of the two and one of the most beautiful sights is seeing her really running her two daughters. Navara however is the more gentle girl who can always be found beneath my legs.
I love both by girls so much.
