ARCHIE Our Black German Shepherd

by Chris
(Appling Georgia)

Archie is now two years old and we got him from a local breeder to keep as a gaurd dog and companion for both us and our fence jumping and now deceased lab bubba, when Bubba died the then 8 month old archie was inconsolable.

Archie was found on the side of the road laying down less than 5 feet from bubba who was hit by a car and left lying on the road side, for almost 4 months he would do almost nothing and would seldom play and laid quietly in his late contemporaries favorite spot on a bench on our back porch.

Now two and a half years old he is now back to his old playful self and now his favorite past time is to put on a show by playing with and removing tops from plastic coke bottles

Total German Shepherd:

Hi Chris,

Thanks so much for sharing the story of your wonderful Archie with us. He sounds like a really good German Shepherd.

Bless his heart, it was hard to read the part about him and his buddy Bubba. Many people just assume dogs don't have feelings - they are so clueless because this is a prime example of a dog grieving for a friend.

I am glad to hear that he is doing better now. Continued success with him. Thanks again!

Archie is such a Handsome boy and those ears! Some people don't realize that dogs too are the same as we and they know, feel and sense. He loved his "brother" and was sadden by his lost.

German Shepherds are Amazing breed and they are so Protective as he demonstrate by laying by Bubba side. Take care of your boy and he will take care of you!
