Oh my. I hope they listen to you and at least keep looking at other options for puppies.

Definitely tell your friend not to buy any "german shepherd's" from those people. So many better options out there.

Being CKC registered (and I'm assuming that's not the reputable Canadian Kennel Club) being in Ohio... I'd question if all of those dogs are even purebred. Some look very questionable. And that's probably the least of that kennels questions.

in my opinion i would not buy from there,to many breeds for them to focus on just one, tell your friend to go to a breed specific breeder.could be a good breeder but i wouldnt take the chance

I think your friend would do better with the "neighborhood" breeder. These people can't even spell German Shepherds ('s).

Oof.

Don't know anything about this rescue (saw the Cincinnati rescue is looking for foster homes - a great way to get into the breed) but look at the way this guy looks:

caddo


German Shepherd Dog: An adoptable dog in Cincinnati, OH

Large • Young • Male






  • Birthday: 6/01/11
  • Weight: 65 lbs
  • Good with Dogs: yes
  • Good with Cats: yes
  • Bio: Caddo was a family release due to them moving to Boston. He lived as a house dog with three small children. He is house trained and crate trained and loves to play with dogs. He is fine with cats also. He is a high energy guy that loves to go for walks or runs, play with toys and chew bones. He can settle nicely though and entertain himself if he has a toy to chew on.
Circle Tail is located about 30 miles northeast of downtown Cincinnati.
Because many of our dogs are housed off-site, adoptions are by appointment only.

If you are interested in this dog, please submit your online preadoption survey. We will then contact you for further discussion, make...


Petfinder Adoptable Dog | German Shepherd Dog | Cincinnati, OH | caddo

All shiny and smart!

That boy is gorgeous, Jean. I hope he finds a great home!

It's always a sure way to measure intelligence by how well they can dig, scale a fence, or "need" to be chained up. Jeez...that website makes me really sad for those dogs...

Good to see you! Yes, he is! I was going to send him to rescue here, then realized he wasn't in a shelter but was already in rescue.

Definitely good news! Someone is going to be very lucky to get him!

He reminds me of Elisabeth's Stark!
