Meet Sadie Nall
Yesterday I finally got my male German Shepherd his mate...a 7 week old female German Shepherd puppy. We have named her Sadie and she is absolutely precious! I picked her up for $50 right below Rockford. Her mother is registered but her father is not. He could be though. He was by far the largest German Shepherd I have ever laid my eyes on. I thought Saul was big at around 90 pounds. The daddy to Sadie turned 1 year old in Feb. of this year and already weighs 130 pounds. German Shepherds don't stop growing til they are three years old. I'm talking GINORMOUS. . He was really a sweetie too and so was the mother....which is totally unlike Saul who is a straight up ass eater.
So far Saul has reacted very well. He simply wants to sniff her and lick her until there is nothing left. She's a little afraid of him though and will growl when he is being too rough. That little growl wouldn't scare a mouse but it gives Saul pause and a quizzical look.
I thought we might have a rough night last night because little puppies always squall and whimper and whine when they leave home but Sadie was great last night. I made her a box with a stuffed alligator and one of my shirts to snuggle into and placed it by the head of my bed. She didn't stay in it five minutes. Then I tucked her away beside me in the bed and she went right out. Later I woke up and she was gone. She had gotten down and under the bed with only her head sticking out. I made a barricade with a big suitcase so that Saul couldn't lick and sniff her to death and it worked. He came over and checked on her a few times during the night and he was raring to go as soon as the alarm clock went off.
So, I'll be talking more about suddenly having two dogs in a few days and what the transition for my first baby Saul is like. For now here are some nice pictures of Sadie after I brought her home yesterday.
