Introducing Drusilla

If it's a non-human, non-Pit Bull, family member, post it here!

Hi Everyone,

This is the newest member of my clan: 9 month old, Dutch Shepherd. I named her Drusilla, but call her Dru for short. She's fitting in nicely here, although she's a little nervous: she had been kept in a kennel/hutch for most of her young life....I had trouble getting her in the house (she had no idea what a house was...I had to pick her up and carry her in); new experiences make her nervous, but we do everything slowly and gently...

However, she is the SWEETEST thing. Even when she was scared and I had to pick her up to bring her in my house, she NEVER turned her head on me. Talk about stability!!!! She's definitely a love bug (it's hard getting pictures when you have her attached to you trying to be loved on).

I think we're going to try to do Schutzhund with her (we're starting with a clean slate as she has NO training)....

AND YES, SHE CAN PICK UP SIGNALS FROM MARS WITH THOSE EARS!!!!!

Thank you so much!!! :D I think her coloring is great....

She had been eating Iams before I got her (I've only had her a week). I switched her over to Solid Gold WolfCub for breakfast, and giving her raw for dinner...and I brushed her out really well (she had a TON of dead fur on her). She's in desperate need of a bath, but b/c she's never been exposed to a hose before, I need to take my time (it's amazing to see how a dog can be so afraid of things I'd otherwise take for granted b/c my other dogs - raised from puppies - don't mind them)

Hey, if you ever get tired of her, I'll take her off your hands. :wink:

Is she an import? If not, would you PM me her breeder?

Keep in mind, she is technically a mutt (pretty much all Dutchies are - in her case: mom = 1/2 GSD, 1/2 Dutchie; dad = 100% malinois).

Also, you've got mail.

I'm not sure....I got the name from the show Buffy the Vampire Slayer (yes, a guilty pleasure). Drusilla was one of the vampires...she was kinda dumb (sing-songy, etc), but really pretty....I liked the character a lot, so I decided to name the dog after her....In the show, Drusilla was also called Dru
