    Had two of them many years ago,

    one was a proper guard dog and the other was absolutely crackers, it was so playful and lovable. Broke our hearts when we lost them.

    They are wonderful dogs.

    They also look like my favorite animal: the wolf.

    My Roxy Girl

    Hello there! Last month we had to let our Roxy girl go off to Rainbow Bridge. She was a 14 years old GSD; she was Queen Bee of the house and is sorely missed. Like many older GSD's she suffered from Athritis, especially around her back end. No one could have ever prepared us...

    I grew up with German shepherds

    since I was 6 years old. In my opinion, they are the most loyal, protective dog. I love everything about them.

    All Dogs Are Amazing Teachers

    I have had my share of different breeds but the German Shepherd wins them all the time. I mean the constant look they have for me, how there eyes or face is set at my way. How I get up to do anything and he is besides me. The constant reassurance of there cold nose touching my...

    He's always been healthy. He's extremely big, around 130lbs. but he's also extremely tall....(I know this because he likes to dance, but that's a whole other story) Lately he has been jumping up, out of a sound sleep and crying out, almost as if someone poked him with a pin. I...

    I have 2 German Sheperds - Neo 3 1/2 & Sasha 1. I have never owned a dog of any description & have grown up with a fear of all things canine. My husband on the other hand grew up with GSD's so we were very different in our attitudes toward dogs. You may be wondering how I ended...
