Thank you everyone for true compliments and advice! Jag, I day dreamed for a long time about my perfect working line German shepherd I was going to own. He was going to be a beautiful dark sable and I was going to do sooo many things with him lol! I really wanted one from Wildhaus, the owner Chris was amazing when I talked to her via email! She was FULL of ecxellent advice and pointers, and most importantly, she was very honest about whether one of her dogs would be a good match for me or not, and she even reccommded some show line breeders to me, which proves to me she has others best interests at heart, and doesn't care about making money off her dogs! That's why when given the choice between Apache and one of her pups, I chose Apache. Chris is so thorough about her pups, I know without question all of them go to good homes. It would have been easier to go through her and get a pup, but honestly having Apache and watching him get to experience life has been an amazing reward within itself. I still will probably want a dog from Wildhaus in the future, but right now I have to put a LOT of effort in trying to make up to Apache what he's been missing in life thus far. And I live in an apartment, and while Apache seems ok with it, he also spent his whole life in a crate until I got him so this is like a mansion to him lol. When I buy a house soon I will definately be looking around again! Thanks again for your advice everyone! Apache is getting a lot better, he still opens his mouth like he is going to bite me, but then he closes it, so he's off to a good start!
