Hello from England!

I've just stumbled across the forums in my search for more information regarding German Shepherds. We've recently become first time GSD owners to a beautiful white long haired pup named Bailey. Having done a lot of research prior to picking her up from her breeder, actually owning a puppy has been a definite learning curve.

Happily we've been trying to work with her as best we can to potty train outside, but she definitely has a mind of her own. Hopefully I can learn more and ask specific questions here and see what other owners have encountered in their journeys of puppy ownership and growth.

For now, little Bailey is 9 weeks old, and unfortunately underweight. She weighs 4.5 kilograms which is roughly 9 pounds, but she does eat and loves playing. Her favourite toy is a little squeaky pig, or it's my favourite.. it just makes me laugh every time!

Thank you for hosting this site and I've got a lot of reading to do and digest!!

Puppyyyy!!!! Love them when they are a ball of puppy fuzz and puppy breath. She's a cutie!

Potty training was a challenge for us too so no advice there other than patience.

Was she dewormed?

Welcome! Am looking forward to watching her grow!

Zeeva, yep! She's on a worming schedule. =) We had her on some medication as a precaution if her upset tum had been from a bout of worms, but shes cleared up since and happily leaves me stiff poos all over the place. Silly bugger!

:welcome: She's absolutely adorable! :wub:

She's still very young and has many months of growing in front of her, as long as she's eating and gaining I wouldn't be worried about it :)

Oh she looks just like my Astro! :wub: All white and fluffy, except my boy had a black nose and was bigger. Your little girl looks so delicate and fine.

She does look pretty small for her age. My pup looked like that when he was just seven weeks old. By the time he was nine weeks old he was twice as big! Hope she does well and you have heaps of fun with her. :)
