Toll Gate German Shepherds
Welcome to TGGS, Toll Gate German Shepherds. We are located in the mountains of northeast Georgia approximately eight miles north of Cleveland. We are excited to have you visit our website and look over the German Shepherd puppies we have available.
Our son introduced us to German Shepherds twenty-five years ago when he unexpectedly brought home a puppy. We quickly realized what a special breed they were; loving, intelligent, willing to please, protective, and loyal. We lost our last dog, Roscoe, after he had been a member of our family for thirteen years, and our hearts were broken.
Now that our retirement years have approached, we’ve decided to breed German Shepherds. We are a small, family run establishment that offers quality German Shepherd puppies. We want other families to be able to experience the special relationship that a German Shepherd has to offer.
German Shepherd dogs are one of the most popular dog breeds in the U.S. The capable working dogs are loved for their loyalty, courage, and intelligence. They are amazingly versatile, excelling at most anything they are trained to do. They make excellent guide and service dogs for the handicapped, as well as fearless police and military service dogs. They can be trained for herding, search and rescue, and drug detection. Last, but not least, they can become affectionate, playful family companions.
