Esmeralda at 15 weeks!

Haven't taken a huge amount of photos of her as we have been traveling for the past few weeks... Back home Friday and couldn't be more relieved. Almost home. Almost back to normal.

We met her father SnoweyRiver Rain Spirit "Senna" last friday. Omg this dog is like my dream dog. And he is as stunning in real life as he is in photos. I just wish he was mine, he just didn't care for me at all. He would accept a pet but I felt so hurt that he wasn't more affectionate with me Oh well, not my dog!


Esmeralda adores me. She never leaves me side. Having said that, she doesn't have separation anxiety like I would expect. She is so protective over me, which is exactly what I wanted. I wouldn't call her "high" prey drive, compared to some I have seen.. But its definitely evident, and more so than my kelpie. She is getting much more driven with toys and treats, and I have actually been able to train her now!

This little girl has filled my heart with love. I adore her more than words can describe. She means absolutely everything to me, and I to her.. I am so glad she has picked me as "her human"... I was worried she would bond with my partner not me! She adores him, but only really goes to him if I am not around (ie; I close the door to go to the toilet and she can't follow.. So she runs to him!)

She was well worth the wait. WELL worth it. We've already decided to get another White Swiss Shepherd/Berger Blanc Suisse this year!! =) It will be my partners dog, however

nice looking dog. when you live with someone and you get a
dog the should be considered "our dog" not "his" or "my" dog.
you get a 2nd dog, it's "our" dog. i wouldn't get a 2nd dog untill
my 1st dog is well trained and highly socialized.

Thank you, but I mean "my" dog as in she refers to most. Ofcourse she is "our" puppy. She mostly listens to me, so I often get other people to work with her (My partner, his mother, my mother, friends etc) so she is used to obeying other people, not JUST me. But yea, when I say "my" dog I mean she has bonded to me.. She will possibly be trained as a service dog for myself and my severe mental health issues (Not interested in going into details...), so it was important for her to bond with me most.

She is perfectly socialized and a well behaved young lady. She has better recall than my 2 year old kelpie! The moment I call her, she is at my side. She responds immediately and never lingers (as my kelpie does). So training is not an issue.

She happily accepts strangers approaching her, although she is wary/unsure when people come running up to her and start petting her.. So I always ask people to STOP, approach her quietly and allow her to sniff them/their hand before petting her. She adores other dogs, plays with any dog instantly.. Just yesterday we were at an off-leash dog beach with her and she was playing with a 7 month old Irish Wolfhound which was atleast 5 times her size and very rough, and she had no issues or restraints. She was quite happy and confident =)
