Theo's Story...
Theo is affectionate, loves attention, and very much enjoys playing fetch, going on walks, and taking car rides. We are looking for folks who have GSD experience, so no first time dog owners please. Theo needs to be the only dog in your home as he is a dominate boy, but he is currently living in a home with cats and doing fine with them. Theo can jump a four foot fence which is how he managed to escape from his previous home. A home with no children is preferred as he often forgets how big he is and can knock them down. If you are looking for a wonderful boy to share your life and home with, please consider Theo as your next companion. He truly is one of the sweetest dogs you will ever meet. Theo is a four year old sweetheart who has graduated training school and is ready for his new family. Theo spent the first part of his life living alone outside and separate from his people. When we met Theo, he showed us right away that he loved people and their attention, but was totally non-responsive to commands. We spent months getting him used to being in the house and becoming comfortable with all the normal indoor sights, smells, and sounds. We realized that he needed extra help when it came to listening so we enrolled him in a Board and Train program with Brian Bergford at Altitude Dog Training. Theo spent 4 weeks working on his social skills, manners, and – of course – obedience training. We are happy to say that Theo has made some amazing progress. If you adopt Theo, we are asking that you participate in at least one private session with Brian to learn how to communicate with Theo. Brian will do that session at a discounted rate of $75 at his center, Uptown Dog, which is located in Longmont. If additional follow up is needed, Brian can provide in-home training to help Theo settle into your home and to ensure the two of you are on the path to a great relationship. Theo comes with his training equipment of approximately $200 but that will be included in his adoption fee of $250.00 By the way, did we mention that he is a total love.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Theo, a Denver German Shepherd Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a German Shepherd Dog for sale in Denver, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Denver.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Denver already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Denver breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even German Shepherd Dog breeders who help with German Shepherd Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Denver paves the way for another one to be saved.
