All in the Family


German Shepherd Dog
August 6, 2008

Newton is our 4 year old black German Shepherd. We adopted him from the Humane Society of MO when he 8 months old and already weighed 60lbs, all ears and feet! He currently weighs in at a healthy and happy 110lbs. Newton's (we have a physicist in the house) loves are: catching the Frisbee, playing soccer, guarding the backyard tree from squirrels and birds, being chased, working with dad in his workshop and generally being mom's shadow. He is a very funny, very smart guy who can learn just about any new trick when enticed by peanut butter toast. Newton gives great hugs and kisses, and lets you know you are a friend with a gentle body nudge. He does have some trust issues (we suspect he was not socialized in puppyhood) but if you are welcomed into his circle of trust, it is a warm, fun and loving place to be! With those ears, black coat and white chest emblem, my niece dubbed him "Batdog!". Indeed, he has been our family's superhero and much welcomed "Dark Knight" and we simply cannot imagine life without him!

Newton is gorgeous and looks like a twin to my German Sheperd, Mila. She also has so many of the same likes as Newton and is definately mom's shadow. Enjoy him and give him as much love as I know he will give you over the years. German Sheperds are truly wonderful dogs/companions

I am the owner of this beautiful dog. He crossed the bridge yesterday, 8.28.16. Thank you Newton for being my faithful friend, my protector. You were a true GSD full of pride and honor, yet you were never afraid to show your love for me. I am heartbroken without you and the sadness is almost too much to bear. Please give me the strength to get through this time without you. Until I feel like I am ready to move on. I miss you so much Newton, and will always love you. I can't wait to see you again my beautiful boy.
