New member and new gsd

Hello everyone,

My wife and I have previously owned 3 gsd' over the last 24 years. Our last male made it to 12 when we had to let him go last September. It was a tough one as he was by far the best one we've owned. He was barely 2 when our daughter came along and could not have been a better dog. We rationalized that with our busy lifestyles, maybe that should be it for gsd ownership.

Well, that didn't last long. This past week, Antje aus der Birkenschäferei (Gracie) joined our family. She's a 5 month old German import. Dad's IPO3 and mom's IPO1 so this is new territory for us but we hope to see what's she capable of. We've never gone beyond basic obedience training so we're trying to absorb as much info as possible and thus joined this forum.

Thanks,
Mark

Mark, Gracie & Family!

She's beautiful and while she may be challenging, I'll bet she's going to be a lot of fun!!

Beautiful girl!!

It is a poor mind indeed which can't think of at least two ways to spell any word.

She looks like a West German Showline, can you post her pedigree, or at least her sire and dam's full names?

She looks like a nice puppy.

Congrats. At 5 months old, the breeder should have been able to give a decent rundown of her temperament and capabilities. Are you intending on training in protection sports?

Good luck!

This is all fairly new to me and I need to educate myself more before I give you a decent answer.
