Not a GSD person, her name was Candy Orr. This was back in '95, '96, timeframe.

selzer When I went to Youngstown State, I had a friend from Poland, and I had a friend from Chardon from work that moved to Canfield years and years ago, so I am familiar with the area. She's back in Chardon now though. So my only reason for going down that way is the Steel Valley Cluster (dog show) in August at the Canfield Fairgrounds. Great show. And our club does their specialty there.

Yeah, she's going to be a big girl. She's pretty. She looks like Rushie, but he was just about 80 pounds full grown. His father was a black, and pretty fat at 105 pounds when I saw him. His owner let me know when he passed. It would be interesting to see her pedigree, but there's no way she could be related to these dogs I am thinking about I think, even though we are close in proximity.

Kasey23 Selzer -

Yes Poland is close to Canfield. 5 miles away. I went to Poland High school. Canfield was always my schools rival in sports.

My vet says that she will get to be around 100-105lbs. The vet said he would take her in a second if he had the chance. He loves her. The dog currently looks like she doesn't have an ounce of fat on her.

I will get current pictures of her and put it in her album.

FirefighterGSD Welcome from Maryland! She does have some huge paws but is stunning. Love the dark face on her.

selzer Six pounds at six weeks can grow into quite big.

Nice picture. 80 pounds is a big bitch for full grown. If this pup isn't fully filled out and grown up yet, she's huge. Make sure that she is not overweight as that will effect her quality of life and her quantity of life.

But, GSDs do vary quite a bit. If she tops out at over a hundred and is not overweight, then you got yourself a big one. She is pretty, and she does have huge paws.

Is this the Poland, near Canfield?

Welcome to the site.
