On Thursday 24th April 2014, Carole and I decided to go for a guard dog that could be trained from a pup. We looked on the various internet sites and found some German Shepard pups ready to go at 10 weeks. The lady who bred them, was from near Crowlands in Lincolnshire. Less then a 20 mins drive from March, Cambs. Carole and I speed off in the evening very excited at the prospect of getting a puppy German Shepard. We drove to a small country village and kennels on the outskirts.
The lady showed us four pups (all girls) and I fell for the long haired one in the pictures below. At first, she was very timid and weary of us. Even when I got up, for work, she was hiding in alcove spying on me.
By the time I had finished work, Sashia (our puppies' name) had become acclimatised to the house and was coming up to me. She had spent the day with Carole and very quickly socialised herself with both of us and the cats, ducks and chickens. She is a real bundle of joy and seems very happy with her new home.
