Brandy is a sweet tan baby girl, with sincere dark eyes and teddy bear personality. She is the first one to greet me in the morning, and the last one staring at me when I say goodnight. She's easy going, friendly and intelligent. She sits when prompted with treats, and is working on down. She has also figured out that the "big dog" water bowl, also doubles as a swimming pool! She gets along famously with my 85 pound catahoula mix, and is working on winning over my old lady chihuahuas. Brandy is doing very well with housebreaking. She knows what the grass is for, and usually has a dry pen in the morning. She is crate trained and is working on walking on leash. She would make a great addition to anyone's family!
***According to dogbreedinfo.com, in April 1899, Capt. Max von Stephanitz registered a dog named Horan as the first Deutsche SchÃ¤ferhunde, which means German Shepherd Dog in English. Known for their tremendous loyalty and courage, they are calmly confident, but not hostile. This breed needs his people and should not be left isolated for long periods of time. They only bark when it is necessary. Serious and almost human in his intelligence, they have a high learning ability. The breed is so intelligent and learns so readily that it has been used as a sheepdog, guard dog, in police work, as a guide for the blind, in search and rescue service, and in the military. The German Shepherd also excels in many other dog activities including schutzhund, tracking, obedience, agility, flyball, and ring sport. His fine nose can sniff out drugs and intruders, and can alert handlers to the presence of underground mines in time to avoid detonation, or gas leaks in a pipes buried 15 feet underground. A quick daily brushing is best unless hair in the house is not a problem. They should be bathed rarely, only once or twice a year to avoid skin oil depletion. Shepherds have a life expectancy around 13 years.
