My name is Alyssa, and not only am I new to this site, I'm also new to owning a GSD.
Although I don't have her yet (she is only a week and a half old as of tomorrow, so unfortunately I won't have her home with me until the end of June) I've been reading up extensively and decided I better get my foot in the door and get to know some other German Shepherd owners... I'm going to need somewhere to vent about my little German Shredder
I used to own a pure bred black Labrador and she was an amazing dog. She was my best friend for 13 years and unfortunately at the beginning of the year we had to put her down. I was devastated and although it still hurts from time to time I finally feel ready to welcome a new four-legged friend into the family. Currently I live at home with my parents and my 16 year old brother.
We've already picked the name Maia for our new babygirl, and I'm beyond excited to bring her home and begin bonding with her. I was reading a lot of different posts about the hilarious stories some of you have, and my late Casey was a very goofy girl so it'll be nice to have some humor back in my life. She was also a monster as a baby and shed like crazy, so I'm hoping that experience will help me prepare myself a bit.
Anyway. I'm sure all of the back story was a bit unnecessary, haha. I may not be too active within the next (very long) two months however I have some pictures of the tiny babies that I'll be posting later on the other thread !
