Oh my goodness! They are adorable! I am one of those people though that prepares thoroughly before jumping. I have my lab Marley who is fantastic, but it seems after you have one, you start wanting more. I have always LOVED GSDs and I think my next pup will be one. I just have never had one, so I want to read up as much as possible so I am the best owner possible for the breed plus I have to save up the money that it takes to get a quality dog.
