Yukon's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, and up to date with shots.

Yukon's Story...
Yukon has arrived safely ...He is HUGE and BEAUTIFUL. Yukon is a male German Shepherd, possibly a Shiloh due to his size. He weighs in over 100 lbs. He has a plush "carmel" color coat, black muzzle, ear tips and feet.

I don't think he was ever brushed a day in his life. So, he got a much needed brushing, then bath, thenonce he dried some move brushing. Once he gets some good food in him his coat is going to be stunning.

So far he has been a BIG creampuff. LOVES LOVES people...Bonds quickly and strong. So far, he is doing well with my male and female gsds but definitely more interested

in being at my side.

Yukon had a Aurel Hematoma in his right ear. A hematoma is swelling created by a broken blood vessel after bleeding has occurred inside a tissue. Hematomas within the earflaps (“aural hematomas”) occur when head shaking breaks a blood vessel within the earflap. The earflap may partially or completely swell with blood. The swelling may be so large that the opening of the ear canal is occluded. The extra weight of the earflap may be uncomfortable and may lead to a permanent change in the carriage of the ears. This condition is more common in dogs but can occur in cats as well. The earflap will feel fluctuant and fluid-filled, like a water balloon. That is why his one ear is down and shaved.

Yukon loves nothing more than to be with his person. This boy would make for a loyal companion. To meet this Big Guy is to fall madly in love with him.

Update: 9/2010
Yukon has been with me just over three weeks now.
He is one big hunk of love, ready to light up your life and steal your heart. Once he gains some needed weight, and his coat fills out, he will be even
more handsome (if that is possible). Currently Yukon weighs 91 lbs, but is still quite underweight.
Thou Yukon is a Gentle Giant, I would prefer Yukon to go to a home with children 12 years and older. Because of his size and unknown background,
I think this is best for him. I don't believe he has had much exposure to children but has done extremely well with children that he has met at meet and
greet. It is almost like he hasn't experienced the "little people" and is uncertain what to make of them
Yukon bonds very tightly with his person and his world seems to revolve around that person. He will make for a VERY loyal and loving companion.
It is my belief that Yukon was kept as an outside dog. He so craves the love and attention from his person.
Yukon has done well with both my male gsd/newfie mix and my female gsd. After proper introductions to other dogs, he seems to be fine with them.
Yukon does seem to be a bit "interested" in smaller dogs and cats, squirrels and such. Again, possibly a prey drive from being left to his own
"devices" as an outside dog. So I would say, Yukon prefers to be in a home with no small dogs or cats. Yukon is a pretty laid back guy, that is content
to be where his person is. Yukon is learning that Life can be pretty good.
Yukon is neutered, current on all shots, & housebroken. He walks wonderfully on a leash. He is a true gentlemen!
Look in those eyes, and you will see love and devotion, all the wonderful qualities of a GSD

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Yukon, a Rochester/Buffalo 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 Rochester/Buffalo, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Rochester/Buffalo.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Rochester/Buffalo 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 Rochester/Buffalo 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 Rochester/Buffalo paves the way for another one to be saved.
