"My Little Butterball Turkey", My White German Shepherd Puppy Ava
by Michelle Lawrence
My sweet Ava, pictured here at three months old (now eight months old, 75 pounds and still growing!). We bought her from a breeder at only five weeks old. Being right around Thanksgiving, I lovingly called her "my little butterball turkey" as she was just a little white ball of fur.
I named her "Ava" because the name means "strength" and "life" in German, and at the time we got Ava, I was grieving the loss of a white GSD we adopted, named Phoenix age 9, from our local shelter, who sadly passed away after only six weeks from adopting him due to the severe medical neglect and abuse from his previous owner.
Ava gave me the strength to move forward from losing Phoenix and very quickly became my best friend. Ava spends her time swimming, playing with our black lab and being my sidekick while running errands. She is very intelligent and gives unconditional love everyday.
I am a GSD lover for life and promote this captivating, loving and extremely loyal breed everywhere I go!
Thank you for your time,
