New to the Site
Im new to the site. Ive been looking for a solid community of GSD owners to become apart of in hopes of having not only a endless wealth of knowledge to turn to. But to establish some friendships with those with a similar love for German Shepherds and animals alike.

I currently do not own a GSD. But I have been doing my research. While I would love a puppy (who wouldnt?) Ive decided that Im going to keep an eye out for a GSD at a nearby rescue, or rescue within a good distance to adopt.

Im a Veteran and not only did I get to grow up with an amazing GSD mix when I was a child. As a Veteran I had the distinct pleasure and honor of working with GSDs and Belgian Malinois serving as Military Working Dogs. Seeing them in action has given me an even greater and deeper respect for the breed and the individual dogs that can do what many dogs will never be able to do.

Im a huge animal lover. And Im excited about bringing home a GSD soon and giving them the love and care they deserve.
