Male 10.4 years
Adopted Added May 19, 2011
Link is about 18 months old. He is a large, healthy, outgoing, young male GSD who is stunning to look at and who has beautiful golden eyes. Link is most likely from Czech type bloodlines, and he is a strong, excellent temperament dog. When we pulled Link from the shelter we could tell he had no training at all. We decided that Link was the perfect dog to send to two of the top trainers in the country for help with his social skills (we are fortunate to have them as friends). Dave Deleissegues, click here for his website, (a nationally known Schutzhund competitor and Training Director of the South County and San Jose Schutzhund clubs, and police/pet dog trainer) gave Link his start, then Lisa Maze of Muttamorphosis, click here to see her website, (also a nationally known competitor, breeder, and trainer of pets and top competition/ police dogs) most recently took Link for month to give him his off leash training with other dogs and on leash manners. Link is now able to be off leash with other dogs and has good pet dog obedience and good social skills.
Link needs an owner that will give him good exercise each day, and will complete at least two training sessions with Lisa Maze (in the El Cerrito or Davis area--she has offered to do this for his new owner). Link is not a good candidate for a beginner or for someone who will not exercise him. A walk is not enough for this dog. He needs to run/play/and train each day. He is however, a good pet dog for someone who understands GSDs. Link is good with people. Link's dog/dog play style is a touch rough, but he will take "corrections" and "cues" from the other dog if they don't like it, and he has good recall so the handler can call him away.
