I'm so glad I found you guys here. I just joined another dog forum but I was thrilled when I found a Shepherd loving community.
I have been lurking for a few days and decided it was time to join.
A little back story- We had 3 labs but had to put down our 14yr lab/mix in July and it was heartbreaking as most of you know. My husband said "no more dogs." I couldn't help but look at rescues for another and he finally gave in which is a miracle. So we are back to 3 dogs.
We adopted our little shepherd mix 3 weeks ago from a nice shelter here in San Diego. We just went to "look" but with 2 kids 7 & 9 it was hard to say no.
We spent a few hours visiting different dogs and puppies. This puppy wasn't my first choice but the kids really liked her.
My husband doesn't even like shepherds because he thinks they are "Sshneeky" as he puts it. I can't say he has bonded with her because she did growl at him a couple times but it was his fault. She is not a very cuddly puppy but more independent and mature for a little thing. Even the trainer and vet mentioned it.
Meet Kona! She is 16 weeks & 24lbs now and growing like a weed. She had a vet check today and received her rabies vaccine.
I tried resizing photos. I hope it worked.
