Dogs Trust Shoreham dog of the week: Meet Brock, a young German shepherd needing experienced owners

Brock is a young German shepherd with heaps of character and a highly-active nature.

Dogs Trust Shoreham staff say Brock’s zest for life is infectious and his playful, puppy-like disposition brings joy to them all.

Despite his fun-loving ways, Brock has a sensitive side and can feel unsure when meeting new people, so introductions must be at his own pace.

Once trust has been built, Brock is interactive and his favourite pastimes are playing games with his toys, learning new things, and gnawing on a long-lasting chew.

Dogs Trust would like to find experienced owners who have a keen interest in positive, reward-based training, and who can provide Brock with plenty of opportunity to express his enthusiasm.

A family with an active lifestyle would be perfect, ideally an adult-only home with a maximum of three people, where Brock is the only pet and there is always someone around for company.

A quiet location, away from the hustle and bustle of busy, high-populated areas is essential, as is walks in quieter areas.

The rehoming centre in Brighton Road is currently closed but people can still apply for dogs and the charity can start the adoption process. Visit for more information.
