LOL.. 8 days after the post started we finally get her name?

I'm so glad she's looking good! Excellent job with her! And I think she's looking sherpherdy.. Will u still do the DNA test at 6 months? I don't understand this? Why 6 months? DNA doesn't change.. So what is the difference if u do it at 6 months, 6 days, 6 weeks, 6 years??

Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea!

He wasn't too happy but he wanted her to be healthy so he is happy with the results now. She hashed to go for X-rays every week since the surgery and this one tomorrow should determine if she is good to go or will need more surgery. Last X-ray showed her growth plate open, when before it was closed, so we are hoping for the best tomorrow because I don't want to have to put her through anything else. She is actually a normal puppy now, playing and going on walks. So we are extremely happy with the outcome so far!

So the vet said that her growth plate is still open and arm growing. He can't explain why it closed and then opened because usually that doesn't happen, but we are both happy with the results. He wants to see her in a couple months to make sure, but he is pretty sure we are outbid the woods. She is a normal puppy now and we couldn't be happier, she started at 3.6 pounds and is growing rapidly now. She is 22 pounds now and is expected to be around 75. Vet is now convinced she is a german shepherd now and is growing to be a beautiful one. I'm just glad we could get her and get her healthy!

She's looking more GSD in every picture
If you get the chance could you take some outside for us all so we can see her better ??

She's so lucky you bought her and are looking after her well!!! That's a massive weight gain already!

Wow! She looks great

Oh I finally got a response from them about the BBB complaint yesterday, (I put the complaint in almost 2 months ago)and the pet store said that they hand fed her steak,chicken, peanut butter and cheese and she would just not grow. They also took extra good care of her because of her size. They claim they took her to vet several times because they were concerned with her size and they would take her out and play but they just couldn't get her to grow. All of that is a lie, 3 days after we had her she already gained 2 pounds, so I don't know how we magically made her grow when they couldn't. I've talked to animal control about them and they swear they do random inspections and they always pass them. I think animal control is lazy and they didn't even seem concerned when I told them what was going on. So I guess all I can do is let other people know about them and not to go there.
