Farrah vom Dortmunder ( a.k.a Riley)
Our Charlie, or Isolde from the “I litter”, has been home with us for 2 weeks now. She has totally charmed us with her personality and courage. This little girl is afraid of nothing and into everything, yet she is already loyal to us. She doesn’t like it when someone leaves the room without her along tagging. She is smart. She comes when called, is already getting the hang of doing her business outside, and is showing the boy dogs in our family who is the boss.
Linda said that she would help us pick the best dog for our family, and she certainly did! Charlie is the perfect fit for our busy family. Linda’s knowledge and follow-up with all of our questions has assured us that we have chosen the right breeder for our new family member. We are so looking forward to our girl keeping us laughing while she grows up healthy and strong, and discovers the world.
Chance vom Dortmunder
Chance has been a challenge to raise as he is very willful, but I learned to take the journey with him …He is so-o-o intelligent, I barely have to show him a new command before he’s got it. We are a team and enjoy long hikes and most of all playing chase the ball. He is a wonderful watch dog and is always near me or my husband. I have attached some pictures of Chance at 13 mos. He takes after his father~Hoss~he’s a handsome devil~:). Thought you might want to follow the development of one of your pups.”
Uriel Angel vom Dortmunder (a.k.a Angel)
On Angel’s first night in his new home, he went out to potty once. From his second night on, he slept straight through, from about 10 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. Amazing puppy! We think Angel is the best puppy we’ve ever had – and we’ve had German Shepherds from puppyhood for the past 37 years. Of course it helps that I’m a professional dog trainer and behavior consultant. I do know puppies and this little boy is exceptional. We did some heavy-duty socialization – i.e., taking him to many new places, to meet many new people, and to interact with many new dogs – right from the start. That plus his own genetic makeup and temperament have produced a puppy who loves people and other dogs. He’s healthy, athletic, sociable, cuddly, smart, and, most important, a happy boy with a positive outlook on life. At 16 weeks, he started his brilliant herding career on ducks and then, after just one session, on sheep. He’s a natural and we’re going to have lots of fun!
