Hi all! I've been here for a little while just lurking but as I've put my name down for a pup I thought I should introduce myself. I've had dogs (as well as a menagerie of other animals) since I was born. Everything from tiny little terriers to great danes. About 95% of our animals have come from rescue where I had the privilege of taking care of them by myself until they settled in with the rest of the family. However, when I went to university I couldn't have any pets so I have been dog free for a number of years (apart from visits to my parents) but I now have a lovely little house with my partner that has a nice size garden. We were going to get a dog from rescue however due to wanting a breed that isn't very populous in this country means that getting one though rescue is very rare especially to the requirements we would like. So a pup it is. We were so hoping to skip puppyhood But cute puppy! We're hoping to get a beauceron from a very good breeder. The pups are due in a couple of weeks and so we'll know for definite if we're getting one from that litter then. As I know all you like pictures: Daddy: Mum with last litter: Looking forward to trick training. Any advice for a new puppy owner that's been out of the loop for a while?
