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.
Yea, I hear ya. We got really lucky about 2 weeks after our Dixie died, I saw an ad for puppies from a very reputable breeder/police dog trainer, they had an accident litter that was about to be born that they were selling much cheaper than their planned litters.

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

How'd you go so long? I have always had a dog and going 2 months without a dog in the house just made the house feel empty. I usually have two dogs, I knew my White Shepherd "Dixie" was getting old and I was planning on getting a puppy this spring, but my plan didn't work out.

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.
