Hello everyone. I'm new to the forum and a relatively new G.S owner. I was searching on how much to feed and found this great forum. Anyway, I got my dog Skeeter in April of '17. Me and some buddies were on a camping/ dirt biking trip and this puppy was hanging around camp one afternoon. Mind you, we were'nt in a "campground" per se, but kinda out in the sticks. So, I gave him some water and he hung around all night. The next day we went out riding for a good portion of the day, and when we got back, he was still there. I had to leave that evening but one of my friends was staying one more night. I told him if the puppy is still here, bring him to my house. The rest is history.LOL. First dog of my very own that I've ever had. I love this guy beyond what I could ever have imagined! I took him to a vet right away and had him checked out, (8 months old) and checked for a chip. Nada. We did what we could to find his owner, but, to no avail. I guess it was meant to be. The 1st pic was the first day that I had him. The 2nd pic was 2 months and 11 lbs later.

I'm not sure of his breed. He is definitley some kinda shepherd and black lab, I think. He has the coat of a lab anyway.

I had a lab/shepherd mix growing up. She was awesome.

She had the playful friendlyness of a lab with the intensity and focus of a shepherd. That girl could get into some serious mischief if left alone for more than a few hours.

It probably didn't help that she and I were unsupervised for a couple of hours after school before mom and dad got home.... it was the 80's. We got into our share of mischief together.

Thanks! I might be a bit biased, but, he is one of the most photogenic dogs I've ever had personal contact with. This is from last summer. This was several months after I got him just playing down at the river.

This was last summer we were just out playing and I snapped a few pics with my old phone.

It’s hard to tell but he could be a purebred working line dog. Other than the white spot and a slight difference around the eyes, he resembles many all black short haired working lines.

Ya? I've thought about doing a dna test. Whats the difference around the eyes mean?
Whoever had him before me had already house trained him and taught him how to sit and a couple other little things.

I personally don’t see a purebred shepherd. I see a bully/shepherd mix. His face and body are off to me. No matter what he is, I’m glad he found you! Welcome to the forum.

I've had people ask if he has pit in him. Sometimes when he looks at me and his ears are laid back, I can see a pitt face so I can understand people asking that question.
