Hi I am new to the forum but I am not new to the world of German shepherds. I have owned and trained shepherds for over 20 years. at this time I have 9 shepherds and 1 mixed shepherd and a lab living with me. I can not picture my life without a shepherd . I do breed but only one litter every 2 or 3 years. I do a lot of rescue, and over the years I have retrained and found new families for over a dozen dogs.
