2012 English Shepherd Puppies!

These puppies were born on October 4, 2012. The mother was our Feather and the sire was our McRuff. ¬†Feather, in the picture below, is a very smart and gentle girl. Although she can be a bit mischievous in the kitchen, she’s very much a Daddy’s girl and extremely friendly.   The puppies get their […]
