There’s nothing like the German Shepherd Dog! Created to herd with great intelligence and endurance, later called to serve mankind as the first seeing eye dog, and continuing to serve today in the military, police forces, at events, airports, and venues around the world detecting threats, performing search and rescue efforts, and loving their family members unconditionally. Is there anything this dog can’t do? Our passion is to preserve these wonderful traits, breed the Total German Shepherd Dog, and to share them with you!
Several years ago, my oldest son, Nick DeLisi, and I purchased our first German Shepherd Dog. Roxy was many things to our family, and she earned many loving nicknames, including “Gus”. Gusto German Shepherds is named after her to honor her zest for life and all that she meant to us.
Roxy was bred by Mark French of French’s German Shepherds. Mark became my good friend and mentor in the pursuit of the Total German Shepherd Dog. I owe much of my success as a breeder to him, and many others who have been so generous with their time and resources.

GUSTO German Shepherds
We want you to be able to take your dog anywhere and everywhere, without any worries. Temperament ensures that your dog can handle anything.
What's a house without a good foundation? We believe this rule also applies to dogs. We breed specifically for correct structure so your dog can live a happy, healthy, and long life - right by your side.
We believe that high intelligence is critical for the modern-day owner - that's why we follow Puppy Culture protocols to set them up for success, so they are ready to learn and do everything you're willing to teach them.
At least one puppy per litter is donated thru the SealDogFoundation.org to help support Military Veterans in living their best lives.
