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: I am in New York State. Got my first DS about 14 years ago (more or less as a rescue- lost her in Nov.). After years of GSD's, and a few dogs of other breeds (Rotti/Beauceron/Ger. Shorthaired Pointer/ Yorkie and my current Jack Russell) I now have another DS, 4mo female, no name yet, tho I have a few in mind.
Also have a horse-old quarter horse mare-32.
Can't wait for all the snow to get gone! Spring is coming too slow this year!

:offtopic: Sue, I've been told that black Kong's are safer for the dogs than the red. The theory is suppose to be that aggressive chewers can swallow pieces that cause blockages, and the red doesn't show up on x-ray, but the black ones do. Don't know if it's true for sure, but I always buy the black ones just in case! :ontopic:

Hope Sugar had a great day!!!

Very interesting Chris, thanks for letting us know. I had gotten the multi colored Kongs but once they got the peanut butter out they didnt care about the Kongs.
