I love my puppy!

Gemran Shepherd puppy! She's great, she's wonderful. We imported her from Belgum last month (at 12 weeks). She's 16 weeks old now and she weighs 40 pounds, she's going to be a big girl.

Yes, we got a German Shepherd from Belgum. Don't worry, our Belgian Shepherds are French lines, and our collie is Russian lines (now, I'll be impressed if anyone understands the logic behind that last one). Even our Finnish Spitz is American lines. Heck, one of our Siamese kittens is from Miami, ¿se habla Español?

Now, would it be against any TOS if I post her pictures here (linked though photobucket to not seem like I'm promoting my sites). She's gorgeous, and her parents are two of the top dogs in the world.

Congrats on the puppy! They are always a joy. Okay, not always, but most of the time. :) Have lots of fun with her!

Congrats. I have 2 dogs myself. I rescued them from our local Humane Society where they faced almost certain execution. Be sure you hang your puppy's papers in a prominent place where everyone can see them. I've heard they're excellent conversation starters...

Rescue! YAY! My wife is a coordinator for Malinois rescue, we love doing it, but the politics in the professional dog world will easily kill anyone's interests.

Oh, I'm sure I'll say this several times whenever someone mentions buyig a dog, don't buy a dog from a puppy store or a "pet" store (unless it's a shelter / store agreement, for example, PetCo (and PetSmart & Pet Supermarket) have agreements w/ local shelters where they'll foster several animals to be adopeted out). Also, if it's APRI registered, you have a puppy mill puppy. You want UKC registered, but AKC registered is OK. OK, I'll be quiet now and get off my soapbox. :)

We currently have five (gasp, yes, FIVE) dogs in my house, 2 Belgian Malinois (one is a service dog for my wife), one rough collie (primary service dog for my wife, but he's an old man, he's 9), one Finnish Spitz (she's going to Indiana soon to an excellent home), and now the GSD puppy who will replace the collie as a service dog.

You can also easily see the end-results of my wife's excellent training capabilities, our pack behaves (except the puppy) and everyone respects everyone else's space, even though there's a definite pack structure.

Also, since no mods have popped in and said no, here's a few pics of her (hosted though photobucket, a neutral site):

Just to warn you, images are large, so people using 56K might wait several minutes for the images to load (about 1-1.5MB)

(I just love sharing my family's joy with others, including complete strangers). :)

BTW - yes, she has HUGE feet, at 16 weeks she weighs over 40 pounds, I think she'll weigh in the mid 70s to low 80s as an adult, my wife still thinks 65-70, but one friend (who knows German Shepherds very well) thinks she could be as high as 90 pounds. She's solid and very strong for her size.

What a sweetie! I had a GS years ago, not as big as this one will be though.

One day while starting a new garden area I was pitching rocks out of the dirt, big ones about 4"-6", when I looked around and noticed she was having a ball catching them mid air. I was terrified that all her teeth would be damaged from this activity. Fortunately, her teeth were fine but she never got past catching anything thrown in the air - no matter how big or dangerous.

Wow, what a cute dog! I'm so excited to get my own dog one day... I'm stuck in the living limbo of my 20's, where I don't live in one place long enough to enable me to have a dog. But as soon as I 'settle down', a dog is right up on the list of important things, along with a home-ale brewing kit.

Let me know, I can give you some great pointers on how to get a good (or great?) dog!
