Tammy Torres Hennessy

Tammy has always been crazy about dogs and has loved and owned them all her life. She bought her first German Shepherd in her 20’s and the rest is history. Tammy brings 30 years of know-how and common sense raising, training and showing her German Shepherds to caring for your four-legged buddy. And, her years of breeding experience mean that she knows and understands the growth and development stages of your new puppy or young dog so they get the extra attention, love, and exercise they need to thrive.
Tammy and her husband, Dave, share their home with a happy, rescued Chocolate Lab named ``Charlie`` and ``Ruger`` their lovable German Shepherd. She is American Red Cross First Aid, CPR & AED certified and is Pet Tech Pet First Aid Certified, as well.
