Yes - it is very interesting and fascinating, isn't it? That's so COOL! I've always loved Greek and the way it sounds, but unfortunately don't know either Latin or Greek. Thank you! That's so nice! Hope she liked it. The word "Shakti" is spelled in different ways - you're very right about that. Shiloh Shepherds are still a breed "in development" but there's more and more of them. They're wonderful dogs in many, many ways. There's the whole huge forum and it's the best place to learn about that breed. The breed founder posts there as well. We're in that forum too. I'd LOVE to foster and train a GSD so that's another thing we have in common! Well - you'll get there my Friend! Keep your dream in mind and say to yourself every day that this is what you're going to do and I'm sure you will and maybe even make a movie for all of us to see you training the GSD! Wouldn't that be so cool? Although there is a Shiloh Shepherd rescue, I must say that it's pretty rare for those dogs to end up in shelters. The licensed ISSR breeders (the original Shiloh Shepherd registry) are doing fabulous job and make sure that IF somebody for some reason can't keep a dog they WILL take them back and rehome it. That's why I'd doubt to see a Shiloh Shepherd in a shelter which is a wonderful thing. Occasionally there might be a dog that's waiting for being rehomed. If you're thinking about fostering Shiloh Shepherds, you might be interested in joining the Shiloh Shepherd forum. It's 100% FREE and there are a lot of people who simply want to learn about this breed and not necessarily have a Shiloh. It's easy to join too. Here's a link (and if you decide to join you can say Lexi (Shakti's owner - everybody knows Shakti there :dogblush )recommended the forum to you ) : www.shilohshepherdfriends.com People in the forum are very knowledgeable and always eager to help. Hope it helps! Take care!
