Always liked the breed since I was a child mostly because of the ears for one thing, and because of their jaw dropping intelligence, loyalty. Etc. My favorite breed use to be the Siberian Husky, but as I got older, many reasons changed that.. The main reason why, was because of my family friend who owned 3 GSD's and a Shiloh Shepherd, 2 of the GSD's were all black, the last one was a rich bi-color which I absolutely loved... The rich bi-color one named Zain was a big teddy bear, a big gentlemen... Absolutely amazing with kids and people, he never barked, he never growled, he never did any of that. He was friendly to everyone (very quiet), and approached everyone so kindly, strangers included... Unless his owner (our family friend) was suspicious of someone he would be very suspicious and protecting.
Years back, we were allowed to take care of Zain.. and my mom's friend (who's also a family friend) took care of the other two GSD's and Shiloh Shepherd... Because our family friend was hospitalized because of breast cancer, originally.. She was planning on leaving her dogs in the house by themselves... Until she got out, but I had begged my mom to allow us to take care of them, which she agreed to, so they came home with us.. That's when I truly fell in love with the Shepherd breed. As I got older I got Leo (seen in my profile picture), because I loved Zain so much.. Leo is also the same colour and coat as Zain.
That's what happen, always a lover from a start. Now, a proud owner, also a breeder.. I love shepherds so much, that I'll breed once in a while as a hobby, not for profits, and to improve the breed.
Honestly, amazing dogs.
