Jo, that's a wonderful story about Dee-o-gee. My current Shepherd is my seventh. They have all been, loving, loyal and dependable protectors. My current male is 120 lbs of cuddly courage. My Shepherds have been; Duke, Bear, Snowy (White), Baby Dog (puppy I kept), Maximum, Stormy (White), and Hammer. Stormy and Hammer (as a pup) are in the pics, on my page. When I served, Shepherds gave up their lives to protect their masters and our perimeter. I would never be without one. Please stay in touch.
