My name is Floyd and I am a long haired German Shepherd living in Northern England. I originally lived with my brother Blizzard and family for 3½ years. But my mummy was ill, there was something wrong with her and she began shouting at us for no reason. My daddy was sad and tried his best but it was difficult. We were often left for hours and hours alone, or locked outside so that mommy wouldnt shout at us.
One day, the doctor came and took mommy away and daddy couldnt take care of us any more. He found this nice lady from a rescue centre and she found my brother Blizzard a nice new home with a family to love him, but no one wanted me!
You see, Im a long haired German Shepherd and most people who came wanted someone like my brother, he was all white, but I was black and tan. They tell me that black and tan longhaired Shepherds are not desirable, so I was left alone. They didnt know what to do with me. I was untrained and wouldnt walk on a leash. I liked to bark but I wasnt being aggressive, I was just asking someone to take me home.
Then one day, the lady put me in her car and I thought I was going to that place where the others have gone, those that no one wants, but no. She took me to see this man; he was nice, he took me for a walk and spent the day with me. He didnt care that I wasnt all white, and that I didnt know how to walk on a leash. He took me home and made me part of his family.
He taught me things, I know how to walk on a leash, although sometimes, I get so excited I pull for a little while, but he doesnt shout at me. I now know how to behave in town, I go to the shops and they let me go in because they know Im a good boy. The lady at the bank said I was so handsome and came over to hug me. I like hugs; I never had any when I was a baby.
I lived in the city, but now I live on the edge of the English countryside. Theres lots to see and do. I love my long walks every day and my play time with my toys; I never had any toys as a baby but have lots now. I love air Kongs and have a huge collection. Daddy sometimes works in America so I stay with Granddad which means lots of treats. But when he comes home he always has a bag full of new Kongs.
But best of all, daddy works from home most of the time and if he’s not around I’m with granddad, so now, I’m never left alone or locked outside.
