Greetings from West Central Florida, USA

Hello Everyone!

I recently registered with because I have already found so much useful information about GSD's and we have a new GSD "puppy" that recently joined our family. Both of us have had our eyes on this for a while and eventually Zoe came into our lives from rescue! We've never owned GDSs before, but we've both had trained medium and large dogs in the past. She joins our family which includes a mini long-haired dachshund named Ziggy of 7 years.

We got lucky with Zoe as she is 6 months old and comes from a family that had to give her up because they are moving overseas. She came with her papers and has a pretty good lineage from Germany. Our experience with her so far has been wonderful as she is very loving and very intelligent! We are getting some professional help training her because we are inexperienced, and it would be such a waste not to do so with such a lovely dog. It is going very well so far!

I am looking forward to learning from members of this board with the wealth of experience that is so obviously available here!

Many Thanks In Advance,
