My husband and I recently adopted an 11 week old long haired shephered. His name is Atlas and hes a smart little shark already! We have both had older dogs throughout our lives (had two border collies growing up ect.) But this will be our first puppy. Training is going well and he is really starting to warm up to our family. I welcome any advice and love the idea of a community dedicated to the breed to learn from (and brag to) through our new journey!.
