My family wanted a dog for sometime. We had two Dobermen Pinschers for a while and it didn't go too well.
We waited a good (and long) 4 or 5 years and got a German Shepherd. We have had her for a month and she is the most beautiful and amazing dog you will ever meet.
She's six months old she has a big black sadle, red head (hehe) brown legs, grey outline and a little white too!!! Did I mention she is six months old and as big as my seven (8 in two weeks:') year old little sister!!!!!!!!!!!! Wow!!!!!!
She loves to run and swim and catch bugs outside. And loves to cuddle and watch TV w/ me (I'm her family favorite) she also loves doing dog tricks.
My mom taught her High five, shake hands and paws, stay and a lot more!!! All in ten minutes!
Casey has a special toy it's a monkey whose heart squeaks and is really fuzzy and spongy. We named her Pippi (originally Pip squeak) we call her "A baby raising a baby" well, I guess that suits it.
We love our GSD! If your thinking about getting a GSD, get one. They'll be a awesome part of your family and they'll love you forever!
