New puppy coming soon!


As some of y'all know, we've been looking for a German Shepherd puppy for a couple of months now. We lost our last GSD, Bach, back in April of this year. We searched breeders all over and finally found one that we liked. Amazingly enough, they were only about an hour away.

The pup is only 5 weeks old so he won't be ready to come home with us for another couple weeks. What beautiful puppies they are! The mother had a litter of 9 pups! We had to decide between the 4 males - and what a hard decision it was!! We chose one & paid so it's a done deal!

The sire is absolutely gorgeous! And he's a big boy - 115 lbs. The dam is smaller - approx 80-85 lbs. They are both black & tan. The parents had great temprements and the sire has high working drive (just like Bach did!!) so he'll keep us busy! lol

I'm SOOOO excited and happy! I can't wait till he can come home! Now I just have to come up with a name....any suggestions?

Here is a picture (sorry for the low quality) of the sire, his name is Sampson - isn't he cute?? No pup pics yet but don't worry I'll have plenty once he comes home!! lol

Yay! Another furbaby to spoil!

I'm not very good with names so can't help with that.

Congratulations! Can't wait to see pictures of him.

Thanks guys!

Two names that are on the top of the list are Manto & Brando. I've been getting tons of suggestions and I really appreciate guys!

I'm so excited I can't stand it! :blob5: Dang, the next couple of weeks are going to drag!!!!!

Congrats on the puppy! Let the count down begin.

You wouldn't happen to want a white GSD, would ya? My brother has one that his girlfriend just HAD to have, and now she doesn't pay attention to it.

Congratulations!!!!

How exciting! I know the feeling.
How about "Zeus" for a name? I thinks it's great name for male shepherd, not for a lab though- that's why I didn't use it.

Congratulations!!! I know how you feel, I had to wait for Owen (our Southern Flying Squirrels) to be born and then be big enough to come home! UGH! The anticipation is bad but you'll be so happy when he comes home. Just hang in there girl!!
I like Manto better than Brando. Have you done an animal name search on the internet? I didn't think they had anything like that but I found when looking for more 'Sesame Street' names.
Good luck!

How awesome...I love puppies...

Scarlette...that is sad... what a poor dog...in our neighborhood, there are tons of Pits, Rotties, and GSD's, and they are all made outdoor dogs, I just feel so bad for them, I would go cuddle on them but they are all so mean from no socialization... There is one black GSD that really catches my eye because he is so gorgeous, I wish I could take him, but I think Josh would go insane if we had 3 dogs haha! Its just sad, because you can tell he still is just a puppy, maybe like 8 or 9 months old. Poor dogs!
