Lupe likes Everyone , He Loves Puppies. .
Hasnt got any.
Lupe dosnt play with toys now, but he does like to " pinch" the odd things.
Munchie rolls. !!
Unfortunatly Lupe cant walk far now, due to his medical Problems
Lupes "Pawty Trick " is to Cry on comand !! ( He had his Salivary Glad transfered to his eye due to having no tear ducts..So, show him a treat and his EYE salivates !!
Lupe was one of 10 puppies .We owned his Mum..ICE a Pure White long Haired GSD and his dad..Mike , a Pure Black semi long haired GSD. In the litter there was 5 short hair pups, 5 long haired pups...Of that 10...5 male and 5 female. 5 Black with Tan feet and 5 sable .We kept 2 pups, Lupe and his sister Sky. ( black n tan female long haired )
At 9 weeks old our Vet decided it best to keep a check on the puppies growth as they where HUGE pups..more like 4 mth puppy sizes. We had a pet food specialist come and monitor their growth over a 6 mth period. They were Very big pups. Not Fat just big
Lupe has Never growled at Anyone or any other animal in his life. He has such a soft Gentle temperment ,His Sister Sky ( rip) was a Pet Therapy dog. A Pat Dog. Lupe would have been a superb Pet Therapy dog but his damaged spine and other medical problems held him back.One of the other puppies was unfortunatly rehomed ( due to a problem in the family who bought him ) A Police force wanted him , due to his size ...but after 2 wks training as a Police dog the Officer in charge of the Dog Unit asked if He could have the dogas his Family Pet as he "failed " his first 2 wks ..at the Training centre .......Due to...his Temperment...Like the rest of the litter ..This pup was Too Gentle to be a Police dog..Im proud of their Temperments. Mum and Dad where gentle dogs too, but Unlike Our Lupe..They had brains as well as Beauty !!!! We say Lupe landed on his head when born ....!
Lupe damaged his spine at 8 wks old ..He wasnt given much chance of reaching 6 mths old..He coped as if nothing was wrong with his long legs,.When Lupe ran..his hind legs would almost overtake his front legs .He could almost do U turn in mid run.
Lupe has had more than his fair share of surgeries..His Salivary gland has been transfered to his Eye due to having no Tear Ducts. He has had 3 operations to insert a balloon and drain into his bladder..He almost died 6 yrs ago with his immune system closing , internal bleeding ,He is very sus /borderline Heomaphiliac..Tested for von Wellabands, . Very Very slow blood clotting..He can and did bleed /drip blood for days after his Immune system collapsed.He developed abcesses internally and ended up being castrated due to Abcesses , Lupe has outlived his 6 mths that the Vet said !!!!!

It is with Great Sadness that I write about Lupe,s Crossing. Those that new Lupe, new He was Our Sweet natured Gentle Giant who shouldnt have lived past being 6 mths old.But Lupe defied all the odds stacked against him and lived a good life even with all his medical problems. He has Never growled at anything in his life.He has never been anything but a loyal family member. Lupe was born here, we had his mum and dad..and his sister,Sky who crossed over a year ago. I could see in Lupes eyes that life had no quality now, His medical problems finally took their toll.Lupe was helped to Cross Over today at 2 pm.He is Free now. He will Trot around the Bridge with Bagpuss or 8 mth old kitten who so sadly crossed over on 20th December 08. Gods Speed Lupe, My Gentle Giant . Loved Always, Missed So much. We all will Never forget You Lupe. . Run Free Loopy Legs .
