Hi there. Recently, I went out and got a "GSD" puppy, and didn't get the dog breed of my dreams, instead, I got a mix. It wasn't too noticeable in the beginning, because my vet said that she wasn't too healthy, and she had a bad case of worms, so size wasn't too much of a problem. But now that it's been a bit, there's no way she's anything but a mix. And it breaks my heart.
I've tried to love her and bond with her the way she is. DOn't get me wrong, she's a wonderful dog. But every time I look at her, all I see is the possibility of a true GSD, and I just can't help the disappointment that wells up inside me. I won't get rid of her, or get another, mainly because I can only financially support one dog at this time, what with vet bills and the like, and I won't get rid of her because I grew up with a family that drilled into my head "What you start, you finish to the end", and clearly I've started something with Dis-A-Mi.
And now my vet says she won't even be a big dog, which is another reason I wanted a GSD for intimidation purposes. I just... I want to feel something for her, but I can't get over the fact that she's a mix and small.
Sorry for whining all over the board guys. Thanks for reading if you did!
