Mia the German Shepherd

Puppy Breed: German Shepherd Dog

Mia's mom says: Mia is a very playful and smart puppy. At seven weeks old she learned to sit, lay down and shake; at eight weeks she learned to speak and at ten weeks she learned to play dead. Her favorite toy is a stuffed animal which she knows as her "baby." Mia just recovered from parvo. We weren't sure if she was going to pull through, but she proved to be a very resilient dog and fought it off. Mia loves children and children love Mia. All of the neighborhood kids ask to play with Mia and whenever they see her, they run over to play with her. We hope to train Mia to be a therapy dog at a children's hospital so she can be around children, which she loves, and so that she can help raise their spirits at the same time. Mia is still very young and has a lot of growing up and learning to do, and though we love the puppy stage of her life, we are looking forward to seeing the mature dog she is yet to be.
