Uko's Story...
Meet Uko,T.T.!!! Let me explain that the letters T.T. signify that Uko has successfully passed the American Temperament Test Society’s temperament survey and been pronounced to be of stable temperament. He now possesses a certificate attesting to this.

Uko is a handsome boy on the smaller size; about 60 lbs. He is about 3-4yrs old. He is solid both in temperament and physically. His color has been classified as “dilute blue sable” by a friend who breeds shepherds.

He is people friendly and adores kids. In the house he is laid back and an excellent housedog. He is good with my cat as well. He walks nicely on leash and knows sit and down and we are working on stay. He would be an excellent candidate for therapy work due to his calm and patient demeanor.

Uko possesses what I call “correct German shepherd temperament” . He is a very good watchdog and will guard your home but once introduced to people readily welcomes them as friends and is very friendly in public. He does love to chase squirrels and no doubt deer so must be walked on lead. He is leery of strange dogs especially other males and introductions must be made slowly. Lack of socialization early in life no doubt contributed to this but many dogs among the protection breeds tend to be this way.

This is a boy who likes to be exercised mentally and physically and will fit best in a home that can accommodate these needs. Currently we are working on his training for a C.G.C/TDI (Canine Good Citizen/Therapy Dog) so that he will be officially prepared for a role in therapy work.

Uko's forever home will require a fenced in yard and breed experienced owners

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Uko, 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.
