    maybe this is the answer?

    I met a neighbour roughly 4 times when his GSD cutie pup was newly arrived. A year on, its never walked, just gets to gaurd the same concrete yard day in day out and is fat at 1 yr of age!

    I have even invited him to walk with me and mine, and he declined as his 1 yr old pup was 'too aggressive' *sighs*

    There aren't actually that many GSDs that end up on pet rescue. I think the size of them does fortunately make most people think twice before they buy.

    We used to have one near us in a yard that backed the park. Never saw him out of his yard, never saw or heard anyone interact with this dog. He spent his days patrolling his fence. My dog used to race up and down the fence with him barking at her. And i used to let her because at least it was some sort of entertainment for him. One day a woman whose dog joined in with the fun tried to stop her dog because it was early in the morning and she didn't want to wake up the GSD's owners. I told her I couldn't give a FF about the scumbags who treated their dog like that and it gave me immense pleasure to annoy them.

    There is nothing I hate more than people who treat their dog like a garden ornament. And in the case of the dog being as smart and energetic as a GSD it truly makes me want to throw a brick through their windows.

    I especially like the idea of the brick through the windows.

    My new rescue GSD Chloe pictured below who was only 7.5 mths when dumped, had been kept in the yard. This little girl had never been in the house - brushed - walked on a lead - no socialization and very little if any human contact.

    I can only guess that because she was left in the yard she grew too big and too hard to handle, so these people ( If you can call them that) dumped her. I got her from GSD Rescue, I was told they re-home some thing like 6 to 19 GSD's per month. She is my third GSD and this wonderful breed doesn't deserve what some people do to them.
