Spirit Today

So very happy with him, his is beautiful inside and out. With his AKC registration, I was able to trace his lineage all the way back to 1895, to Hektor, the very first registered German shepherd.

7 months, 79lbs, pure joy

She's doing very well. She's really starting to slow down now, but she still has her moments. I was joking the other day that Daisy has a better recall with Spirit than I do, she barks and he comes running. She's still Top Dog

HovawartsMom, this is my first GSD. It all started with my fascination with Diesel here What a learning experience this is, so different from a golden retriever. I worried I might be afraid of this breed but I'm not at all. Spirit has a bark that will make you stop in your tracks but he's a total mush with me and my family. I am very careful with him with strangers, definitely learning the ropes as far as him being aloof and protective, but it's a lot easier than I imagined it would be. He is so smart, very much a challenge for me -- which I'm enjoying.

I have to say though that I have had more injuries, scrapes, bruises and even lacerations from this dog LOL Not sure what it is about the German shepherd but they sure do play rough
