If you follow me on Instagram, you probably know that our family grew this past April by one….a fury, adorable, male German Shepherd Mix puppy. Hoover is his name and he is just perfect. For years the Hubs has been wanting a dog of his own, in particular, a German Shepherd. We already had a dog, Cha Cha, a senior Plott Hound mix that I had adopted in college, and our landlord only allowed one dog….so, we would have to wait until we had a place of our own. Fast forward to earlier this year, we are in our own home and Wade was back into the German Shepherd talk. Being a huge advocate for adoption but also wanting a puppy, we stalked various local rescues. One day the Mid Atlantic German Shepherd Rescue posted that they had a young GSD, named Frenchy, who had just given birth to 10 (yes 10!) GSD mix puppies. 9 male and 1 female. They were born on George Washington’s birthday so they were all named after US Presidents. Hoover pounded his food and was the biggest of the bunch so naturally, Hoover was the perfect Presidential name for him and Hoover he shall remain! We just love him to death and he is the perfect addition to our family. He loves playing outside, napping, annoying his sister and chewing on his antler to help make his ears stand up more! (look at that ear progress!) He extremely loathes the vacuum and baths. We now have had him for about 3 months (he will be 5 months old this week sniff sniff) and I cannot believe how big he has gotten…30+ pounds! He is going to be a big boy! Check out a bunch of pictures thus far of the little bud!
