Hello Everyone,

This is my Ava, She is simply the best ever! My son and I recently went through a tragedy and having her with us kept us going everyday.

She is always there to protect, defend and give us kisses that makes the grumpiest of souls burst into laughter. She is Priceless to us!

She doesnt know it yet but she will be starting herding lessons soon, I think she will be great at it! I cannot wait everyday to come home to her and can't imagine life without her, she is something special!

Best wishes to GSD Lovers,

Shari Newman

Hey Shari,

Thanks so much for taking the time to tell us all about your German Shepherd Dog Ava. She is definitely a beauty for sure.

I'm so sorry to hear about your last bad experiences but so glad to hear that your Ava was there to help you through it. A good dog can be an excellent comfort in times of need and a wonderful friend to lean on.

I would love to see a video of Ava's herding lessons. If you get a chance and make a video of her in training please come by and leave us a link in out video sharing section too because I am sure that I'm not the only person who would love to see her in action!

You don't see many GSD's actually herding any more but it is definitely in their heritage and in their blood too. Continued success with her and good luck to you both in the future.

Ava is a Beautiful and look at those big ears! Dogs have a way of helping us to cope with sorrow, they feel things too and know when we are sad. Good for her to learn herding, I'm sure she will be Great at it. Take care of your Precious girl and she will take care of you!
