Caleb's Info...

Caleb's Story...
Caleb is a 2-year old boy who looks like an unusual breed called an American White Shepherd or White German Shepherd dog. He also looks like he could have a hint of Canaan Dog in him.

White Shepherds are not the same as your traditional German Shepherd dog – they are usually bred to have an overall softer, more mellow, more sensitive personality than traditionally colored (black and tan) German Shepherds.

Because of this sweeter temperament, White German Shepherds are almost never used in protection -- a White German Shepherd can be a good watchdog, but his "watching" is usually limited to alerting you that someone is coming. White German Shepherds are not typically aggressive.

Caleb weighs maybe 50 – 60 pounds, so he is a great medium-to-larger sized dog. He is full grown at this size.

I did some reading about White Shepherds and below are some of their characteristics:
They are
• strong, athletic, and natural-looking
• have a "softer," more mellow personality than a traditionally-colored German Shepherd
• exceptionally intelligent, loyal, and versatile -- when well-socialized and well-trained, can learn and do almost anything

Caleb is a beautiful fellow. He came from a high-kill shelter and was initially timid around men. However, he is getting over that and gets along great with gentlemen who are kind and soft-spoken with him.

Caleb is a gem – he is social, playful, funny, great with other dogs, ignores kitties, and is a blast with kids.

I think Caleb would make a super family dog – he would probably do better with older children, because he is a big, active fellow.

He is athletic and would be a great running, biking, and hiking buddy. While he isn’t the tiniest bit aggressive, his size alone will make you feel safe and confident.

Caleb is perfectly house trained, and he is neutered and up to date on all of his shots, so he is ready for his forever home.

I love this boy – he is so beautiful, big, and nice. He does not shove his weight around, even with little dogs. In fact, he is great with even my little tiny foster dogs, as well as all the others. It is funny to see him teach the little ones their manners... He acts like the pack leader and gently, but firmly, tells the younger pups how to behave!

I am a firm believer in allowing potential adopters to take a pup home for a sleepover, so you might want to take Caleb home for a couple nights to see how well your potential new best friend blends with your family and your other pets.

To meet this very handsome, striking boy and the rest of our other great foster puppies, please call 858-602-2061 or email

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Caleb, a Poway Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Canaan Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Canaan Dog for sale in Poway, or seeking a Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Canaan Dog dog from a breeder in Poway.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Poway 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 Poway 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 Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Canaan Dog breeders who help with Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Canaan Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Poway paves the way for another one to be saved.
