Default First time GSD owner

Hi everyone, My name is Heather and I will become a first time GSD owner to an 8 week old pup tomorrow morning! Ive already named her Madison and ofcourse she is just absolutely gorgeous!
My Gramps (deceased) used to breed GSDs when I was a child and growing up there was always reasons not to have a large dog. Now at the age of 45 Im in a position to give Madison the focus and commitment she needs.

I just joined the forum today but Ive spent the best part of two weeks visiting already, trying to learn as much as I can from your experiences with GSDs - still tons to read so I greatly welcome and appreciate all advise and tips. At the moment its all about the puppy months and early training... sooo much to take in! hehe

I have a 15 yr old Yorkie (will take that socialisation verrrry slowly ) and I just cant remember the puppy stage anymore - maybe I blocked it out!
Anyhoo, just wanted to introduce myself and Madison and say Hi.

Heather

Hello and welcome! Don't worry about forgetting the puppy stage, I'm sure you will soon be reminded.

I also have a yorkie who wanted nothing to do with my shepard when we got her. The shepard wants to play with the yorkie of course though. After 9 months they have a bit of an understanding now.
