  • Greetings from Laura and Duchess

    Hello to all,

    My daughters and I recently adopted a year-old schipperke/shephard mix from a local shelter. She's very gentle and good-natured, but -- having spent most of her life thus far in a kennel -- needs some training.

    Nonetheless, she is already a very important part of the family. While sometimes a burden, walking her out in the park in our neighborhood is a joy -- we all get to socialize a lot more with our neighbors now.

    This is my first dog, and I am the proverbial stupid owner so I'm going to have lots of questions for you veterans.

    Thanks in advance!

    Howdy! Congratulations on the addition to your family :-)

    Don't forget that the only stupid question is the one you don't ask :lol:

      Hiya Laura!
      That is an interesting mix.
      Skips are very, very active, hyper, dogs. They can be difficult to train and quite a handful..while shepherds are eager to please, quick to learn and calm and patient. What an interesting mix! It will be fun to learn more of which breed she takes after as she grows!

      Well, we'll see you down in the dogs section! Welcome aboard!
