ADOPTED 09-05-11 – This particular German Sheppard dog (tango) came to our rescue after his owner abandoned him at a local boarding kennel. The owners of the kennel asked for our help in placing a wonderful, well behaved and beautiful 3-5 year old animal, due to our past experiences with abandoned dogs we were a little apprehensive. Thankfully the dog was exactly what we had been told to expect, wonderful, well behaved and beautiful. Tango is fun loving but mature, he will play with other dogs, retrieve his ball until he drops but will quit on command and become your companion lying peacefully at your feet. As part of our work we check out the social skills and training of new dogs to determine our beginning point for training, in the case of tango we found him to be highly trained, socially adept and extremely bright, in other words ready to place. This guy does real justification to the positive attributes of the breed being highly alert, very trainable, dedicated to his people, highly developed
NEUTERED * WHITE/GREY/BLACK * FULLY VETTED * GREAT ON LEASH GREAT WITH CHILDREN * GREAT WITH OTHER DOGS * HOUSE TRAINED * BASIC TO ADVANCED COMMANDS
Ped guardian instinct that is 100% under control at all times, great with all humans both adults and children and downright cocky about his abilities. Tango is definitely one of those dogs that are a couple of steps ahead of you in thinking at all times but is thoughtful enough to be patient with us slow humans. This boy is ok with cats, tolerating them only if he must but feels you are being downright monumental in your demand.
Tango is great on a leash, handling other dogs, crowds and noise with ease. In my view this dog has done everything that has been asked of him very well and he was still abandoned, the fact that he has been able to forgive and adapt is truly amazing. I have made a personal commitment to tango to insure that he is never abandoned again or let down again. It is with this commitment in mind that I seek potential new forever family members for this most wonderful dog.
