Talking Hello from Memphis!

Hello! My name is Kaitlin and I am from Memphis, TN.

I've been lurking on this forum for the past couple of months inhaling all of the information I can. I do not currently have a German Shepherd, but will be getting a pup within the next 9-10 weeks (depending on when momma decides to have her pups- should be any day now!). It's really exciting and I cannot wait! This will be my first GSD so I finally got up the courage to post, as I am sure I will be needing advice in the near future.

I am a senior in college and will be graduating in about two months, and will be starting my full-time job shortly after (woo). I currently live with my mom, and we have two dogs and a cat at the moment. Beau the Border Collie/Aussie mix (8) that we rescued 5 years ago, Koda (5) the Papillon, and Zoe (13) our kitty queen. Lol. I've attached a picture of Beau and Koda, as Koda was originally my dog that I had gotten for my 18th birthday, but I had done internships out of town so he got a little too attached to my mom/vice versa. She'd never let me leave with him...

Excuse my ramblings. Just wanted to introduce myself.
I am a tad shy, but I can't wait to utilize the forums (already have some questions in mind, but that's not for this thread) and get great advice from people who have a lot of experience!

Thank you and I hope I did everything right with the picture and sizing! It was giving me a lot of trouble. (If not, I'm really sorry admins!)

Welcome! Cute dogs. Good luck with the puppy. There are lots of good thread here about puppy training.

Thank you!
I have definitely been reading around and trying to learn as much as I can before puppy arrives. It will be a journey and can't wait to begin!

Thank you!
I believe I will be too. I have always dreamed of getting a GSD, but could not when I was younger (no financial resources and dad did not want anymore pets). Now a graduating engineer, I will be able to fully support my dog all on my own.
And thank you! I will be posting pictures as soon as I know which puppy is mine.
