Hi everyone, I'm new to the site, I have just been lurking for awhile as I don't have a dog yet. I have put my name down for a female white shepherd puppy - she hasn't been mated yet so I have no idea when I will be getting her!
I have only had one dog named Gloria (we called her Gouby) who was a Cattle x Kelpie. She was given to my sister and myself when I was just over 1 year old and she was 4 weeks old. We had to put her down when she 14 and 3 months old Still miss her a lot but I made the right decision for her.
At the moment we have 2 cats (Dash is nearly 3 and Suki turned 1 last month) that we got from the RSPCA. We also have snakes, rats and fish.
My partners family have lots of animals and while staying with them before our house was built I helped look after the dogs. We have just started 'borrowing' Toby their Belgian shepherd on the weekend
Anyway I have been researching caring for shepherds and dog training while I wait, as well as reading lots of posts on this forum
Thanks for everything so far, can't wait until I get my puppy!
