I've owned 9 GSDs all have been over a year old & every one of them will forever be in my heart. Tuvok is my first puppy
I searched all over the US for a long time for the right dog till I found a great breeder: Cobb Hill German Shepherds in Phillipston Ma. I traveled there & they showed ma a litter of puppies & I spied one of two males who had the biggest set of paws I had ever seen on a small pup! I picked him up & was bounded to him right then. The Day we brought him home he was playing with a baseball & was able to fit it in his mouth!Then he really surprised us with fetching the ball & bringing it back! He has amazed us with how much he has grown over 10 months & how intelligent he is. The LJ in his name stands for "Lock Jaw" because when he clamps down on something there is no getting it away from him unless he's given the command to drop it. Needless to say, he takes his play time very seriously & plays a mean game of tug of war!
He destroys baseballs, soccer balls, Basket balls, & even a small actual tire we bought him! Haven't yet found a toy he can not tear apart! But he is a gentle soul & way too much fun! He always keeps us jumping with his huge energy level & friendly nature.
