"Zeteo Telos Shepherds!"

The Greek word Zeteo means to set your heart and to pursue with much desire.  The  Greek word Telos means the ultimate end-complete.  It is our ZETEO to breed and work the ultimate German shepherd, TELOS!

We strive to breed sporting and working German shepherds for the discriminating handler and competitor.  Our breeding program emphasizes the versatility and health of the German shepherd breed. We strive to produce dogs that meet the breed standard originally set by Max von Stephanitz; dogs possessing strong character both mentally and physically. Our overall goal is to breed and promote the German shepherd as the working dog he/she was designed to be with an emphasis on the breed standard for character and working ability. Telos strives to produce German shepherds possessing courage, drive, hardness and trainability in order to serve as companions, protection, and working dogs.  It is our purpose to employ a responsible approach to developing healthy, top performing German shepherds.     

​We have been involved with both the German shepherd and competitive dog sports for 15 years.  Having competed at both the regional and national level, we know the type of dog we want to train and compete - dogs with a strong character, high yet balanced drives, a solid work ethic, and a biddable nature for training.  We have spent a great deal of time researching bloodlines that perform AND produce the type of German shepherd possessing the above traits.  It was with this intention that we sought to select strong working females with specific genetic backgrounds to lay the foundation for our breeding program.  It is our belief that the strength of the female line is paramount in producing dogs with character and temperament that can reproduce the same.  We encourage you to view the pedigrees of our dogs, as we believe you will find they are comprised of some of the best working bloodlines in the breed.  


In addition, our German shepherds are family members and we expect our puppies to be valued in the same manner. Therefore, we reserve the right to deny the sale of any of our dogs or puppies if we feel the buyer or placement is not a suitable home.  
We strive to match each of our puppies with the exact characteristics that our clients seek.  We evaluate each puppy individually to ensure not only good health, but also that the puppy's natural ability is best paired with its intended purpose.  In an effort to provide the most suitable homes for our puppies, we require prospective buyers provide information regarding their experience and intended purpose for each puppy.  

Now, run fast, bite hard, and we will see you on the field!
