Hello Forum.
I'm Andrea. Today I got my first German Shepherd. She is a 7 month old puppy the guy who I got her from said she will be Sable. I have been reading up until I got one. Yesterday I was looking around the internet and found a guy who listed a German Shepherd with out a price. I decided to call him and ask how much he was willing to take for his dog. He told me and to you all this may sound ridiculous but 3 bags of 42-55lb of dog food, any brand. With an amazing dog such like her i had to meet her. I met her yesterday and she became attached to me right away. She listened to my commands and is already protective over me. I picked her up today and can't wait to create memories with her.
Wish me luck on my journey!




That's my baby, her name is Mara.

Lucky puppy! If the guy was willing to trade her for dog food - I can only imagine!!! But she does not look starved....I would feed her a good quality food tho!

And she is a black and tan, possibly bi-color ....not a sable....

again, lucky pup!!!!

The owner's dad fed her since he was always working. She was given goat milk and goat cheese a lot. They just took her to the vet on monday she is as healthy as an ox
his words not mine lol. Thanks though today I am getting her pedigree or actually going to look for some good food because the other dogs we have eat kibbles and bits.

Welcome from Orange County. Take her to your vet ASAP. I am glad you saved her, but such a beautiful dog for 3 bags of food, makes me think maybe the vet told him the opposite of what he told you. Good luck with her.

Why don't you switch all your dogs over to a better food? The cheaper brands often have lower calories and a bunch of fillers, so even though the better brands are more expensive you end up feeding less, which helps defray some of the increased cost. Also - less poop to pick up!

Just an update. When I got her they been calling her Ciara, we were gonna change her name to Mara but she doesn't answer to it. The guy had told me he called her Ciara for last day or so, well she answers to it.
