Everyone says you are the go to Lady for White Shepherd questions, so here goes. I am currently shepherdless but have had AKC registered White Shepherds and I am considering acquiring another or perhaps a Berger Blanc Suisse (BBS). I have read about their similarities and differences. BBS are generally supposed to be more mellow and maybe not as driven (individual dogs vary of course). What is your opinion? I don't need a 100 lb couch potato but my last shepherd was definitely high energy even when he got old. Also BBS can cost two or three times as much as a good WGSD (I am looking for good pet quality capable of scent work and maybe herding). I live in So Calif and there are a reputable BBS breeder (Dances with Wolves) and WGSD breeder (Ve Lins White Shepherds). Your thoughts on either? Thanks in advance for your input.
Hi there! I saw several of your wonderful, informative posts on this forum and wondered if you'd be willing to look at my recent post, "Is a White GSD right for me"? I'm new to the site and not 100% certain how to navigate around yet, but if you are willing to lend an ear (err...eye?) and have any trouble finding the post I'd be happy to help!
I heart Annie (and Harley too off course). But having a female white shepherd comrade, I dunno why, I find it such a relief c: I'm partial to long coats but can't manage my long haired cat uff...If you don't mind me asking, where did you get your two? Not only are they beautiful they look smaller than my Zeeva which to me is a perk; she's 70-75 pounds and a whole lot of dog to handle. How're their temperaments? Zeeva is a bit of a weak nerved case, and some of that is my fault so we're working on it very slowly. No where in the near future am I considering thinking of getting another dog but I really wish I'd taken a better route in terms of researching breeders. She was a surprise from my husband so I couldn't do my OCD research that I would've done if I'd known...
Sorry for rambling. I'm just a sharer...Give Annie an extra hug from her WGSD friend Zeeva and from me...and Harley a kiss
Your babies are beautiful! I got my Bane (short for Wolfsbane) from Royal Acres in Valparaiso, Indiana. They have a website. If you happen to wander on to their site and look at Jean's dogs, Bane's dad is Zeus. His mother comes from Terre Haute, Indiana and is Britta. I picked his name to honor the K9 officer for the Michigan State Police who lost his partner while searching for an elderly dementia patient in the woods and got spooked by a deer that jumped up in front of him and he took off and got lost. Happened in November 2010. Could look at your pictures all day long. Just gorgeous!
I need to ask a question based on what you found since I'm not very knowledgeable when it comes to pedigrees, titles, and certifications.
By what you saw on the pedigree database are these solid working GSD's in your opinion???
