Oh Jenna I know Spirit isn't all black but he is the spit of the long haired black GSD my best friend had when we were growing up. My god I loved that dog, we had such a special bond. My friend and I were next door neighbours so I used to practically live at their house just to see him everyday...my friend lost interest in him after a couple of months and her mum couldn't handle him so after a few years he was sent off to be a police dog..apparently...he was sent SOMEWHERE anyway. Broke my heart. He once got out of their garden and they had to come and call for me to come and get him as he wouldn't come to anyone else...as soon as he saw me he just about bowled me over...I will always love that dog! I nearly well up when I see your pictures of Spirit! He is so beautiful and just reminds me so much of Magic.
