Got my shepherd puppy last december. He is my second shepherd. Lost my twelve year old last summer. She was solid black and a great dog. This is Captain January. He just turned six months. He is a east german line plush coat. Got him from a great breeder. picked him at three weeks and brought him home at eight weeks. parents were beautiful and healthy. Two of his older brothers are police dogs for sheriffs departments in Illinois. Hes fit ito the family well. just graduated his intermediate obedience class and a couple of weeks into the advanced. then cgc. looking forward to learning something here.
