Talking Acheron and Dakoda; Update Pics!

Hey everyone! It's been a while since I've been on, but I just couldn't resist coming back onto the forum!
Acheron, my solid black male (ASL/Czech working cross) will be a year old on the 27th. Dakoda, my black/tan female, turned four on April 29th. Ash is coming along VERY well with herding training, we were going to Alabama every other weekend to work my uncle's sheep/goats. He is the most social shepherd I've ever owned, and is just a PLEASURE to work with!!! He and Dakoda are inseparable at this point.

Anyways, here are some updated pics of my babies. The sable female in the pictures is my best friend's 2 yr old girl, Schatzi (Acheron's "bae" LOL).
Yes, he is a bit on the heavy side right now and Dakoda IS shaved for medical reasons. I have been sick for 2 months, and spent a couple weeks in the hospital recently (was released last Tuesday but just got off bed rest this Monday) so he hasn't been getting worked the way he needs to.









^ Yes, he is overstretched. I'm still pretty weak and he kept pulling back his leg -.-
















^ Tongue out giving me kisses after I finally got out of bed Monday (you can't tell but he weighs the same amount as me!)... He was so excited he wouldn't stop whining and wagging his tail/wiggling for three hours. He hasn't left my side once since I was discharged, and his "daddy" even brought him along to pick me up!

Thank you! I was happily surprised to see how well the camera on my phone captures action shots xD LOL!
They definitely had a blast. Hopefully it won't rain and we can do it again today... It's Acheron's 1st birthday

SOOO much to catch up on, for sure!!! I've missed talking to everyone on here!!!

Also: This is my newest possible foster LOL! She was left abandoned in a house for 4 days before someone found her when her owners moved. Poor baby.

Acheron looks good, so no scarring from the accident?

Thank you, Shanna! He does have some scarring along his gums, and when you look VERY closely between his eyes you can see where the fur swirls around a small area/scar. But that is the extent of his scarring. He has no emotional/mental scars and no other physical signs that it ever happened. (: Best shepherd I've had so far, temperament-wise. No food aggression, nerves of steel, very friendly but alert... Just amazing!
My mother's lab mix, the dog who had attacked him, actually had to be put down a couple months ago when he started acting unpredictable around my nieces (he did finally accept Acheron around that time though, so his final day was spent with Ash and Koda playing/chasing ducks at the lake). After 8 years of managing his fear aggression (sedation, trainers, seperation), my parents just couldn't do it anymore.
