Tell us about yourself: Annie & Nick, first time owners of a dutch shepherd, named Amber, rescue from North American Dutch Shepherd Rescue (NADSR), fostered and trained by Kim Futch. Amber's favorite things to do are eating, chasing balls, chasing frisbees and napping with us in bed.
Location: New York City

I've never thought about eye color but here's a picture of Amber (and you can see where she got her name from). My neighbor once said, "when i look into her eyes, I don't know if she's going to lick me or eat me!"

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 :)

Rufus has 2 different eye colors.

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.

I noticed that on the drive up. It's very striking and seems to fit with his quirky personality. I wondered if he had some Siberian Husky or Border Collie in him, but when they have mismatched eyes they're usually (always?) blue. Rufus just has a neat light and dark mix.

Yea its very neat. If you take a piece of paper and cover half of his face at a time he looks like 2 different dogs. His brown eye side looks just like Maiya. Then he has the other side that is him. It's so interesting.
