Well I don't know if any of you have heard the story so I am going to tell it one more time but with a little different ending. My mum has moved here from South Carolina and had been working with a SAR unit up there. She has 2 male gsd that were rescued from a puppy mill but the one she was working with didn't work out because he couldn't take the stress. She has been looking for a puppy to start with and I have been trying to help her (with much help from the forum people, thank you) but nothing sounded just right to her. Anyway, many people suggested a one year or older but mum was totally against that.....untill now. Tomorrow I am taking her to look at a one year old rescue. I went to look at her tonight and she seems like the whole package. She is underweight and was rescued, due to be pts last tuesday. She has already learned her new name "Heidi", she has no issues that I can see. She passed all the evaluations I gave her, loves people, has great ball drive, is very willing to learn and be loved. She is a little alpha and it would take some time to get her and mum's boys settled but she has no real agressive behavior that I can find. No food agression, ect. Its early days but watching her I really think she has something special. I am taking mum over in the morning with Neko to see how Heidi reacts to a bitch. Neko is a really good dog with agressive dogs and I have used her in temp tests before because she is nonreactionary no matter what they do. We will also try some fun run away's to see how she likes the game. I will let you all know how it goes, wish us luck!
