Hi, I'm beaderdog, from southern NJ. Although I don't have a GSD presently, I was raised by 3 GSDs & still love the breed. At home with us now are my 2 13" beagles, Penny & Pippin, and my son's autism service dog, a Siberian husky named Boomer. We are also owned by 3 cats. I have mobility issues that will get worse over time, so we're looking seriously into a mobility service dog. For now we've been working with the trainer who helped me with the CGC for my younger beagle to cross-train Boomer to help me with things like standing & handling stairs, but there is a GSD in my future. I like doing my research ahead of time, and found this wonderful site in my e-travels. I've learned so much already & look forward to learning more!
