From disappointment comes joy

As some of you will know, I was expected to get my pup at the end of May. They were born on 28th of March but unfortunately 2 of the 6 pups died. The breeder wanted to keep 2 of them and called me 2 weeks after they were born to let me know he wasn't going to be able to give me a pup. This was last Thursday and I was absolutely devastated. By Friday I was angry. Not at the breeder , but rather at the situation. So I went about asking a few people about good upcoming litters and got word that there was a 10 week old pup available from a reputable breeder. I called her immediately and after trading a few whatsapp messages, I decided it was time for a road trip.

Drove 6 hours on Saturday to get to the breeder's and saw the pup. I fell instantly in love. Sunday morning I picked him up and drove back home.

I'd like to introduce you to Kaos (Registered name: Tank Catello)

Congratulations!

I'm sure there are a lot of stories like that from members in this forum. Happened to me with my dog. Long story short, the one I thought I was getting from 1 breeder...never happened. Ended up getting one from another. In fact before I was looking for a puppy, I was going to adopt from a GSD rescue that I donated my old dog's things to after he died. (Met a few dogs and it just didn't click with any of them.) On top of that, our local county shelter (and nearby county shelters) didn't have a GSD for a long time. (They're usually filled with pit bulls or pit mixes.) So I decided to do the puppy thing again. Anyway, my point is...plans change, for many of us. Btw, your pup now looks gorgeous. I wish you a lifetime of happiness with him.
