My story

Tavo is a handsome, solid 8-year old black sable boy whose family could no longer care for him, so he’s looking for new digs.





Tavo has had obedience training, but would benefit from a refresher course. Because he loves to play with toys they could be used as an excellent training tool. He is responsive to simple corrections and has great focus on his human.





He is a wonderful, loving, dedicated companion, and is happy being near his humans, but is quite independent. He enjoys walks and rides in the car (although he is very vocal on car rides). While truly a “bull in a China shop,” he is a fairly well-mannered, non-destructive gentleman, who will make a great addition to the right home.





Tavo has spent most of his time outside in a kennel, but has adjusted nicely to being a house dog! Who wouldn’t! He sleeps comfortably all night in his crate, and has settled down in his foster home.





He will take treats gently most of the time, but might try to snitch one from your hand! We’re working on correcting this behavior, and he is learning very fast, as he only wants to please his handler, but caution is a must.





Tavo has not been socialized much with other animals, so he might do best as an “only dog.” He requires a home without cats or other small animals, and because of his size, only an adult home will be given consideration.





Tavo is a great dog looking for his forever family. He needs people who are willing to devote time to forming a strong, lasting, trust-based bond, offer him a safe, loving environment, and provide ongoing obedience training, based upon positive reinforcement. He is a lot of dog, and only high level experienced adopters who can provide strong leadership and proper management of working breed behavior will be considered. Tavo must be given daily exercise and mental stimulation to expend his energy. He is not an average pet. Are you game??





We are waiting for your call!

More about this rescue

Redwood Coast German Shepherd Rescue is dedicated to the rescue and placement of sound German Shepherd dogs (and mixes) in their forever homes, where they will be loved and cherished as a member of the family. Our volunteers take the time needed to understand each dog’s needs and temperament so that placement is matched appropriately with an adopter(s). Owner surrenders may be accepted, but only as space permits, as shelter dogs at risk of euthanasia remain our first priority.

Adopting from our organization adds to the close-knit family of German Shepherd owners, who are intermingled with each other similar to the deep rooted system of the Redwood trees.
