|HeidiGS||Speaking of breeders, does anyone breed a dog like THE Dingo vom Haus Gero?|

Regional Clubs - Southwest
There is a German Shepherd club in Beaumont. You might try contacting them. Also, there are dog events in 4H such as conformation, obedience, and agility. The dogs don't have to be registered with any group to join.

In blue - Yeah, that's what I figured. Plus there's limits as to what minors can do due to liability issues.
I was able to work at stables cleaning stalls and grooming horses and was involved in 4H....trying to think what is similar to 4H in the dog world. I do know that AKC conformation shows have a junior handlers program. Breeders will train you and allow you to show their dogs. Perhaps try to find something like that and I would suggest being open to all breeds at first to get the best shot at it.
I think a member here, Xeph, helps junior handlers, contact her and maybe she can point you in the right direction.
BTW- I don't want to come off making you feel bad, there is nothing wrong with dreaming! It's how you create goals and visions for your life. Just one must be realistic that most dreams are achieved through steps, not big leaps.

|HeidiGS||The only thing you missed is that my parents were considering getting another dog, but probably not.|

I respect your honesty.
Now, you've been advised by three moderators on this board with good advice.
I hope you will take their advice or Crackem's. You're quite a few years away so maybe find ways to help/volunteer fund raise for rescues. Great ways to learn and make contacts too!
Best to you!
