Occasionally we have young adult GSDs for sale. Showing at the level we show at
sometimes results in dogs starting out with great promise for the show ring but for
various reasons not reaching the levels we strive for. These are excellent family/companion/pet
dogs and we place them in excellent homes. All of our dogs live in our house and thus are
housebroken and don't chew...much better than a puppy!!! Generally, these dogs
are available at very reasonable prices.
Will dogs say over 9 months old bond with new owners? Yes-if you can wait one week! It is
amazing how fast they can bond. When we first started out in shepherds, we purchased a 4 year
old ex show dog and within 3 weeks he had bonded with us. Another example: look at all
of the "service" dogs (e.g. seeing eye dogs, etc) that bond with their new owners after they
have been trained by the service dog organizations.
Thus, if you are interested please email or call us to see if we have the right older dog for you.
