It was hard for me to wait 6 weeks! But I'm glad we did.

Well, it wasn't easy. That is the longest I have ever been without a dog my entire life. We had a long hard road to getting a pup. We thought about a different breed for awhile (Malinios) then decided to go with another GSD, so we thought rescue was the way to go. Well, breed specific rescues in our area were (trying to be nice) not working out.
I had contacted a breeder about 2 available pups but they were expensive. I told her that I would have to wait until January to incur that kind of cost. Late October she contacted me again and said she had a confirmed pregnancy and the timing should work out. We went to visit her facility and it was all a waiting game from there. We were so impressed it was worth the wait. So far this pup was definitely worth the wait. Temperament wise, he is exactly what we wanted.
I tried really hard to keep my desire for a dog in check and do the right thing. Again, it was well worth the wait.

Long time shepherd owner, new to forum
Hi, I'm the Honkytonkmn,
I had my first shepherd when I was 8 years old. He was a Black Shepherd stray I befriended when we moved into a new house. He was the best Dog ever and I never wanted another breed after him.
I've had 5 Shepherds since then 2 White Shepherds 2 Black and Tans and now a black and red. My white shepherd Dixie had to be put down two months ago and we just picked up our new puppy Jan 1st.
Just looking for general information and talk with other Shepherd owners who love the breed as much as I do.
