Introducing to you our gorgeous 2.5 year old long coated German Shepherd Teddy.
Ted as he likes to be called came to Sadie's as as a stray from South Carolina. With Ted in the home you will need no other security system! He is a gentle giant to his family. His favorite things include cuddles, tummy rubs, and long car rides. He also enjoys long brisk brushing of his coat. Ted is crate trained. True to his breed and his great need for guarding, Ted will require at least a 6 ft high enclosed area. Cats and other small animals are not suitable for Ted. Ideally he would do best as a single pet in the home. At present he does live with his large foster sister who he does very well with, but it will take time and managment by his new family to integrate Ted into a home with another large dog. He has been working with a professional trainer and has made great progress. The ideal owner would be someone who is committed to continue his training. Ted enjoys his training lessons and catches on very quickly. Consistency and dedication is key in helping Ted become the best that he can be. As with many large breed dogs he has been maintained on hip supplements and probiotics. These medications will need to continue for his well-being. Ted is an amazing, loving and beautiful dog. He would make a wonderful addition to a home who understands his needs and has experience with GSD and he will give you undying devotion in return.
Ted is neutered and up to date with vaccinations and flea/tick/heartworm prevention and takes daily supplments & probiotics.
German Shepherds are large and powerful and have strong guarding instincts. They should be with the family and continually exposed under supervision to people around the neighborhood; they should not be confined to a kennel or backyard. German shepherd dogs are active and like to have something to do. They need ample exercise daily; otherwise, they can get into mischief or become high-strung. The dog sheds heavily about twice yearly, and the rest of the time sheds a lesser amount continually. To control shedding and keep the coat nice, brush at least a few times a week.
Sadie's is a pure positive training rescue, the use of punitive training devices such as choke chains, prong collars and no-bark collars are not permitted at any time after adoption. Positive reinforcement training resources are provided to all of our adopters. If you have time to dedicate to training, raising and socializing a puppy apply today at www.sadiesrescue.org
Please keep in mind there are many factors to consider when choosing the right match for a dog so an application cannot guarantee adoption. Nor do we work on a "first come first served" basis, but rather strive to find the best match for the personality of each dog. Ted's adoption fee is $300.
As part of our adoption process, references both personal and veterinarian will be checked. Sadie's also requires a home visit before we adopt any of our dogs out; therefore we only adopt to our local WNY region.
