Favorite Toy:

Favorite Food:
Natural dog biscuits

Favorite Walk:
Playing on our 7 acre property

Best Tricks:
Fetching whatever you throw for him, diving underwater to get it

Arrival Story:
We found Yaeger at the local shelter and adopted him from there - that proves you CAN find purebred dogs at shelters, statistics say 20-30% of the dogs in shelters are purebreds.

Yaeger was around 4-6mos. old when we adopted him, he's a great kids dog, gentle, yet a great guard dog as well. Yaeger is a very serious dog who considers himself the guardian of us and our property!

What went wrong...

Yaeger became suddenly paralyzed on 4-23-10.
We brought him to our vet who indicated she wasn't sure but all signs pointed to Fibrocartilaginous embolic myelopathy or an FCE.
Because of his size and the humiliation he suffered about the subsequent potty accidents (we didn't care, but he sure did!), combined with the inability to keep him crated (he had some spondylosis in his back which was ongoing/progressive) the decision was made to end his suffering and our vet thought that was the most reasonable course of action.
He will always hold a special place in all our hearts, and especially Ashley, whom he "belonged to" over the past 5-6 years.
Rest in Peace, Yaeger. You earned it.
