Arrival Story: My boyfriend and I really wanted a family dog. We have a 9 year old son and we like to travel a lot, exercise, and swim. We thought the perfect dog for us would be a German Shepherd. They're very smart dogs and very loyal. We adopted Liberty on July 26, 2011. She's very playful and already catching on to the rules of the house very quickly. We can't wait for her to grow old with us and enjoy family trips and adventures with her.
