Australian Shepherd / German Shepherd Dog
June 29, 2010

Originally his mom was sold to a lady down in Southern, Ontario from an Australian Shepherd breeder up near North Bay, Ontairo. But I guess a neighborhood intact male German Shepherd made it into their back yard and she became pregnant. She was then sent back to the breeder. After searching for a long time for a dog (originally I was interested in getting a long coated German Shepherd) I found an ad online for my new pup to be. I went and saw him and was immediately in love with his unusual markings, his two different coloured eyes, and his lack of tail (they docked it as he had the same markings of an Aussie)...So I asked how much she wanted for him...she just laughed and told me he was free (he was after all an accident, and had no papers). Brought him home that day, at 8 weeks old! Turns out he was quite the little handfull, and a very dominant pup, he was a singlton. He is now almost 2.5 years old and a wonderful dog! Though a little obsessed with fetch. He loves to swim and loves to play with children.

What an interesting bio about Shep! He is truly gorgeous with those colors of his coat & ears of a shepherd! Sounds like you both came out as winners! I wish Shep a long & happy life with his forever family!

When I saw this picture of Shep on the Daily Puppy page, "German Shepherd" jumped out at me. Nice mix of breeds. You surely made a great choice. Hugs and kisses for Shep.

I absolutely love this shot of Shep. It shows both sides of his breeding and he is just gorgeous. I have an Aussie/Heeler mix (Texas Heeler) and a them both for various reasons, but mostly because they are so loveable and smart!
