TAEKO – A Brave Little German Shepherd Puppy – PENDING ADOPTION

Taeko means “Brave” in Japanese and Taeko is the Braveheart of Sedona Shepherd.  This little guy is about 5-6 months old and was turned into a scary city shelter all by himself.  When we saw him in the shelter kennel, he was anxious to get out and be with people.  Although Sedona generally focuses on adult and senior German Shepherds, we wanted to make sure that Taeko did not end up in another home that could not handle him.

If you are interested in possibly adopting Taeko, you must meet the following requirements.


Experienced owners of German Shepherds or other large breed dogs.
No cats
Children over 12 years old
Live in NJ or Lehigh Valley.
Live in a Suburban or Rural setting, not in a city environment.

If still needed by the time of adoption, agree to complete Taeko’s training to an approved trainer by Sedona Shepherd

Taeko just loves to play, romp around and be with people.  He can spend all day chasing down toys and tennis balls and then be ready for a nice walk.  As a youngster, Taeko is continuing to learn how to play with adults.  When he first came to us, Taeko would easily get excited and didn’t really know how to properly play and use his mouth.  But over the past month working with his foster family and Canine Dimensions, Taeko is turning into a well mannered pup.  He is comfortable using a crate and is house trained so no accidents.  He can still be a little mischievous so don’t be leaving any shoes laying around.

Although it was apparent that Taeko was not socialized with other dogs before entering our program, he has begun to learn how to properly play with other dogs.  We have taken Taeko on pack walks and once relaxed he respects his big guardian Trey.   In addition, we have introduced to other dogs in play settings during the weekday.  Taeko will do well in a home either without another dog or a dog that is confident.  No cats.  Taeko will be neutered in early July.

If you live in the following counties, Canine Dimensions will provide 3 free months of additional in-home dog training as needed: Morris, Essex, Union, Hunterdon, Middlesex, Somerset, and parts of Warren County.
