Tindrock Shepherds started in the mid 1980s in Tully, New York, outside of Syracuse. In 2008 we moved to Canton, GA. Although we began in Obedience, we quickly became interested in showing in Conformation, or the Breed Ring.
In addition to obedience and our success in the Breed Ring, we are proud that several of our puppies were acquired by a regional 'Freedom Guide Dogs' and are now 'Guide Dogs'. One is actually overseas with the Freedom Guide Dogs in Japan and they have requested 'another one just like her'. Knowing that our dogs have the temperament and willingness to help people is so important to us and making our mark in this venue means more than anything else in the world.
The word Tindrock means the highest point. We chose this name because we strive to produce puppies of the highest quality and to reach their full potential, whether as a show dog, obedience dog, seeing eye dog, or as your personal companion.
We only show and breed German Shepherds of the highest quality. They must be sound in mind and body, with good hips and elbows. They must be regal and beautiful to look at. They must have good temperament as they will be your constant companion.
German Shepherds are very loyal to the families that care for them. With this said, we are committed to finding the best homes for our puppies; loving homes that will consider their puppy as part of the family.
It is very important for our puppy buyers to begin simple obedience training when you take your puppy home. We want your puppy to be respectful of your lifestyle and an ambassador of the breed.
