Introducing August’s Dog of the Month!
| August 2nd, 2012

Meet Gertie, the German Shepherd Puppy


At 4 months old, Gertie loves being the puppy of the pack. She is a ball of energy and loves to use her rope to play tug of war with other dogs. Her best friend is a 10lb Dachshund, named Bitty. Gertie greatly enjoys teasing Bitty into playing. This tactic works, Bitty quickly becomes annoyed and to Gertie’s delight will chase her around the yard.
Gertie in the sink
Gertie is already a wee bit famous on Facebook, this picture of her sitting in the bathroom sink was posted on the German Shepherd Dog community page and has received over 6,000 likes, 3,000 shares and over 200 comments! Gertie has big plans for her future. After completing her AKC STAR puppy test, she will continue on with basic obedience and test for her CGC. From there Gertie’s possibilities are wide open, she’d like to try her paw at many sports such as agility, rally obedience, urban herding and perhaps training to be a therapy dog. She has been a wonderful addition to her family and has many adventure filled years ahead of her!
