Time to go digging through your old photo's. Would like to have a winter themed photo up in January.

....

The usual rules:
1) Please submit one photo
2) By submitting the photo you are stating you have rights to the photo
3) Please put the canine's name in your post <-- This is my personal pet peeve and is called the Marjolein rule for a reason! :whistle:
4) contest will be open until around the end of the month - voting will begin sometime after that.

Odin tracking in the snow. I can't wait until this year to see Odin and Elli in the snow together. It will probably be next week knowing Michigan's weather. Hopefully he gets off crate rest soon.

Well seeing as we don't have snow yet I have no pictures of Phoenix but here is an action shot from way back about 8 years ago with My Logan (Rainbow Bridge) and his buddy Aiden. Logan is the beige & white husky shepherd cross, Aiden is the black and white husky.

Don't worry they were just playing :)

Tell us about yourself: I adopted a Dutch Shepherd mix (without knowing what she was) from the SPCA here in Victoria BC and am now trying to learn everything I can about this breed. My husband and I work from home most of the time so I thought it was time to get a puppy! We have his 2 boys here half the time and we wanted a nice family dog.

Sugar looks like a miniature Dutch Shepherd with floppy ears, and has every ounce of DS traits in her little body!

I hope to learn from other DS owners and share doggy experiences.

Tell us about yourself: Howdy,
We are a family of rescues, (yeah, me included), in Southern California. My wife and I currently have two dogs, a Golden Retriever/ GSD mix by the name of Morgan, and our DS mix(?), Dinga Roo. We had never even heard of a Dutch Shepherd before until we were stalked by this nice lady in the pet store who asked us if Roo was a DS. Dang if that lady wasn't on to something. I just found this site, so here we are....

Tell us about yourself: I've had Belgian Malinois for years at my folks. I just got married, and a friend of mine who does search and rescue, had been keeping an eye out for Mali puppies for me. He came across a 9 month old Dutch Shepherd female pup who needed a home. She doesn't have the nerves to do the search and rescue she was intended for, but is perfect pet material. She's enough of a challenge to be alot of fun :)

These are all so cute! Rufus isn't old enough to have experienced snow. We'll see if we get any this year though. Will probably be another month before we even have a chance here.

Owned by Flint (American Eskimo Dog) and Rufus (Dutch Shepherd mix) :)

In loving memory of Maiya, the best Dutch Shepherd. 2012-2013. At 14 months old, you had yet to live life to it's fullest. You touched our lives and will never be forgotten.

We haven't had a winter yet for the baby, but she did suffer from "frosty whiskers" when tracking early last week.
So this is our winter theme photo entry :D

Tell us about yourself: My name is Jennifer. My whole life I have been interested in dogs. I starting learning about all the different breeds and their characteristics at a very young age.
Now that I am older & out on my own, I felt it was a good time to rescue my own dog. I searched for about 6 months.
It was my third time around when i met a 8 week old Dutch Shepherd. The moment we met i knew she had picked me. It was an instant connection. The shelter said someone found her and two sister pups abandoned in the woods. Her sisters were adopted that same week. Her name is Kora, she has a tan brindle coat and is the best companion I could ever have in a dog. She amazes me everyday with her intelligence and personality.

Re: November 2013 - Winter

Post by Jennyt0319 » Fri Nov 29, 2013 4:56 am

This is Kora, this is her first fall into winter transition. She got wrapped up in my scarf one afternoon. Her eyes are light brown, but the black/white makes them appear to be a lot lighter color. Amazing.

Thor's first snow three years ago. I love both photos, but since his ears are cut out in the first one, the second one's the entry (pure nirvana).

Tell us about yourself: DS and Mal foster newly approved aug'12 by NADSR and ABMCR. high-functioning Autistic in nyc/hamptons in my 60's. Rescued the smartest dog i had ever seen off nyc street in 2000. Tracedog's intelligence exceeded by multiples my judgement that day. My first [and only as of 10/2012] dog turned out to be a DS, perhaps with a touch of something else, but attention to detail, behavioral traits, and physical habits, movement, and skill identical to DS. But MUCH more intellectual ability. supremely confident in all settings, fearless, very outgoing and social with people and friendly with dogs. Seldom apart in over 12 years, Trace Dog was the most important relationship of my adult life; he was my partner. He died july17,2012. i am dying without him. www.youtube.com/tracesobaka www.dogster.com/dogs/637612
