Nice photos! Thanks for sharing! Have you entered a picture of your shepherd?

And yes I do like shepherds. Especially the white ones!:smile:

Thanks for the links to the German Shepherd pictures. I especially loved the shelter dogs. We adopted Jody from MOGS (Missouri German Shepherd Rescue)...she is a failed foster!
What do you mean by failed foster? Do you mean someone took on the responsibility, then quit on the dog ?? If so I just hate those kind of people.

Todd, we are a foster family for MOGS and would foster German Shepherds until they were adopted. When we went to pick up our new foster dog, Jody, we fell in love with her. We say she is a failed foster because we adopted her.

A failed foster is someone that takes a foster into their home and ends up adopting the dog. They "failed" as a foster family because they kept the dog they were only supposed to be temporarily caring for....

ie. they couldn't stand to part with the dog and wanted it to become part of their lives permanently

Yes, she is considered Black Sable. Her sire is Black Sable and her dam is Solid Black. I can never decide which color I like best, lol, a gorgeous GSD is a sight to behold, no matter what the color!

Not my favorite breed, but I do love them. :)
I'll look at the pics!
Wait, I thought I read that Tiger was half GSD and half Rottie. Or am I mistaken? I remember always thinking how cute Tiger is, then you said in some post that she was 1/2 GSD & 1/2 rottie and I thought "So THAT'S what the product of my brother's rottie and my GSD would look like."

Did I make that up in my head? :tongue: Tiger really is a cutie regardles of breed combo. :biggrin:

Yep, Tiger's a GSD/Rottie mix! He only weighs 45lbs tho because he was the runt. :smile:
Thanks for the compliment, I ♥ him :)

Thanks for the compliments...Toffee likes being told she's beautiful..lol :smile:
Tiger is a beautiful dog, too! I knew a Rottie/ Dobie cross when I was younger and his name was Beno. He was absolutely incredible!! I figure a Rottie/ GSD cross would be just as great. :cool:
The thing about Sable GSD's is that they are born lighter and then their color darkens and changes as they grow. While most classic black & tan GSD's are born almost black and then lighten as they grow. Toffee has a black belly unlike most others have a tan belly..
