Cool TOFU in da house!

Hi All,

Thanks for everyone contributing to this site and helping us newbies with our shepherds.

I immediately found out after getting my 18 week old puppy that having a shepherd is not for the weak

Please meet TOFU who is now 8.5months old. He's Swiss shepherd x Samoyed. It's been a crazy 4.5 months with him with endless walks, obedience and socializing. Funny how I used to think that I had too much free leisure time before getting him... LOL I'm certainly getting quite the education on being a dog owner!

Here are some pictures from the past 4 months:

He is absolutely gorgeous. That age they will test you just like teenagers and try to see what they can get away with. I love the breed but they can be pushy and obnoxious and full of themselves but when all the dots connects as their brain matures and it will -with repetition and structure they really turn out to be quite incredible.

LOL did you name him "Tofu" because he's the color of Tofu? :-)

He is cute and looks happy, not like a fierce "dominant" dog at all...
but yes, I think GSDs are a handful compared to some other breeds!

He came with the name "Chase" which I hated. Initially, I thought Polar because of his black nose and white fur. But as I thought about it, I liked Butter more. In the end I put it to a vote at the office: Butter, Tofu or Litchi (I was obviously hungry at the time). Triple tie at the office! Now everyone at the office calls him by their preferred name LOL

Ha, another foodie person like me!
My daughter named our dog (Rumo, after a favorite book of hers about a white wolfdog) or else he could have had a food name too.

The white Great Pyrenees we know is named "Snowy" (obviously a dog named by kids ?)

There was a huge English Sheepdog looking dog down the street who was named "Dumpling". Somehow the name didn't seem to fit his 100+ pound galloping self.
