Harlow Everly

German Shepherd Dog

On our four year anniversary, My boy friend Matthew and I had decided that we wanted to give our feisty (male) black cat a little sister. It was then that we set the date to be in exactly one year to search through our local shelters and research all possible breeds online. Well a couple weeks shy of our five year anniversary, there she was. With her adorable half black/freckled mask, and adorable "about-to-stand" ears. Within a week we drove almost 2 hours to simply visit her and there she was, the biggest puppy of the bunch with a funny whimper each time I looked away. When Matt looked at me he knew I had fallen in love. Not only was she perfect, the circumstances in which she was found made me want her all the more. She had been found at 2.5 months on a highway, simply terrified of cars and the outdoors. We were told she would grow to be a big girl as she was half German Shepherd (her other half unknown); all the more reason I wanted her. On her first day home (at 3 months) we taught her to walk on the leash, and potty-trained her. She absolutely brilliant and knows well over 20 tricks now (at only 6 months), and loves to cuddle with her brother Binx. Living in Florida brings her close to farms and the beach and she first learned to swim in the ocean at 3 months. We couldn't imagine our lives without our beautiful "Harlow baby".

Harlow's so well-named -- she's definitely got star quality! Perhaps a little Great Dane mixed in? If so, she'll probably grow up to be "almost" big enough for you! BTW, how did Binx react to his huge "little" sis? ;-)

Sorry; had to add another comment after looking at larger versions of her album photos. I love the one of Harlow with the horses; they give us a terrific sense of scale, proving that this "big" puppy is still just a lil' one after all.

Hahaha... Thank you for the comments, I really appreciate them! :) The one with the horses was when she was three months old. There she was showing us her herding abilities; they just naturally flocked right over to her. We thought Dane as well, but now that shes 6 months she's slowed down on growing, not nearly anywhere near the size of my best friends Dane who is well over 140lbs! Binx didn't appreciate the fact that another animal was in "his territory", having been with us for 4 years before Harlow arrived. Since then we catch a glimpse of him napping with her on her puppy bed just long enough to give her a few big brother punches on the head. haha.
