Bay Area German Shepherd Rescue

jadeMeet Jade - hero German Shepherd who found a newborn baby abandoned in a park in the UK. The healthy tot - who is barely a few days old - was discovered by dog-walker Roger Wilday wrapped in a towel in a plastic carrier bag by his German Shepherd on Thursday afternoon.

Hospital staff have named the baby in honour of Jade - the dog who may well have saved her life. Medics say Jade - who weighs six pounds - is "alert, happy and contented" as she continues her recovery.

West Midlands Police have released a picture of the baby and say they urgently want to reunite her with her mother.

Baby Jade was discovered by Mr Wilday at around 3pm on Thursday in Stechford Park, the West Midlands.

Mr Wilday, 68, said of his dog: "She headed to the bushes. She wouldn't come back so I had to go over and I saw the bag and then I heard a baby cry.

"I reached down to look at the bag closer and I saw a baby in a blue blanket, I was so shocked." "I dialled 999 and picked the baby up. She was warm so I don't think she had been there long."

Trainers2

Our dogs are super smart and learn very quickly with the right direction.  We are often asked to recommend a dog trainer by people who adopt their new dog.  Our belief is that trainer works with you to help you train your dog. Over the coming days and weeks we will be creating a list with contacts.  We will only list trainers that our members have personally worked with and recommend.

Based in Novato, they offer an extraordinary range of training and behavior classes at very affordable prices. Many of our volunteers have undertaken their dog training classes with their personal dogs.  We are huge fans of Dawn and her entire team. See them on line here and call them on (415) 883-4621

 

Lisa Caper runs DogOvation covering Marin County.  Several of our volunteers have worked with her and they give great reports.  Like all the best trainers her focus is more on training the owner to train the dog.  You can read all about Lisa's philosophy on her website here and phone her at : (415) 299-1158
