Introducing Cyrus

We finally took the plunge

We now have a 5 year old male german shepherd. He is not only handsome, he is a very good boy. Bree fell in love instantly, but Keesha is not sure she wants him in her house. He gives them both kisses, so I think he will win Keesha over.

Handsome hunk of dog he is. Is there a story as to why such a good looking fellow needed a home? And how you happened to luck out and get him?

So tonight Keesha decided that Cyrus should chase her. She was having a blast but he caught her and tried to mount her. She panicked. Now she looks at him like what do you think you were doing?

Cyrus came from a kennel that was using him for breeding but she decided he should have a good home. So she offered him to us. He is now in a loving home and will get so much more attention. He was not mistreated.

Thank you everyone for all the kind words. As Winston says, he is a lovebug and at this moment he likes me better than DH.

I know that will change in a few days, but I am going to enjoy it while I can.

Lovely dog, Sylvie! Except that he hasn't any grey hairs, he is very like the beautiful GSD, Mars, over at Pet Stock here. Is Cyrus neutered yet? Lucky dog to end up with you.

You sure do have a good-lookin' Pack, Sylvie!! Sounds like Keesha just needs to teach that boy some manners! I'm so happy for all of you!!

Sylvie, Cindy just sent me this thread that I totally missed. I'm so happy for you. Cyrus sure is a good looking boy and it looks like he's going to fit right in. Lucky dog that he landed in your loving home.

Sounds like Sophie is going to sleep well after her week at Chez Sylvie! What a blast that will be! Sylvie, make sure you have your camera battery charged, pls! (And yes, more pics ahead of time would be acceptable as well! )

Cyrus's new bbf Sophie is visiting for the week. She came last night and already she has tired him out. Everyone went for a walk this morning and I even took pictures, I just have to down load them.

Thanks Marko, he certainly is a beauty with a personality to match. He is so gentle with Sophie.
