GERMAN Shepherd from Opotiki has found a new home in the South Island, after being surrendered to animal control earlier this year.

He was taken in by the German Shepherd Rescue Centre, based in Invercargill, after its crew spotted him on an SPCA website.

“We are really pleased that Dale has been adopted and will be starting his new life in the South Island shortly,” Opotiki District Council planning and regulatory group manager Gerard McCormack said.

“If people are looking to adopt a dog then I would encourage them to look on the SPCA website where we have all adoptable dogs listed.”
