ADOPTED 08-06-11 – Every once in a while a rescue is blessed with a chance to obtain a truly superior and unique dog, in our case it is a male, Dutch shepherd, appropriately named deacon. This guy came to us as a frightened, emaciated, dirt ball with eyes that screamed “do not give up on me I will make it “. After working with deacon for some time it became obvious that he was a cut above the usual dog, extremely intelligent, always alert, and self confident and a true love sponge. Deacon is a definition of the breed, beautiful coat, graceful stride, confident, deep chest, long legs, erect ears, deeply loyal, piercing eyes and is most comfortable trying to sit your lap. This guy is playful and moderately active, choosing to make his job your well being, embracing the task of playmate, bunk mate or guardian.
BRINDLE – YELLOW/BROWN/BLACK, NEUTURED, FULLY VETTED, GREAT WITH KIDS OF ALL AGES, GREAT WITH OTHER DOGS, WILL TOLERATE CATS/NO LOVE LOST, LEASH TRAINED, HOUSE TRAINED, ALL DOGS ARE MICROCHIPED
The best way I can think of to portray a mental picture of deacon is to think of him as a cross between Albert Einstein and Grocho Marx. This young man of 18 months is everything that you want as a family member, courteous, gentle, loving, open and best friend. In my years (40) working with dogs I have had the pleasure of experiencing many great dogs but I can truthfully say that none can surpass this dog. My time with deacon has been very special to me; he has taught me much more about character than any human ever could.
