Hi all, please welcome the newest adopted member of my extended family. Yesterday my son and his fiancee adopted this cutie from our local shelter. He is Apollo only a month to 6 weeks old and we were told pure breed German Shepherd (don't know how true that is). The previous owner dumped him because "they no longer wanting to care for him". He is the first completely black (nails, pads all over) dog I have ever seen. We love him already! Get prepared because I will be posting pics!

OMG, what an adorable pup! And such a wee one. Considering what his previous owner did, life can only be looking up for him from here on out!

Thanks, he is such a darling! I believe he may have been the runt of litter and did not sell so they got rid of him. My son is very happy, he has wanted a german shepherd, time will tell if he is.

Can we all say AWWWWWW he's so cute, of course the cuteness stage passes so fast, be sure to take lots of pics.

by the way to shrink the pics, once you get them showing up in the message box click the picture once and you should see little squares on the corners put your cursor there and click once and hold and drag the square toward the center of the picture and it will shrink it if it gets distorted then use the squares in the sides and top to adjust it. :)) but we love big pictures!!!

Beautiful baby!! It will be interesting to see if Apollo stays black or not. I recently have looked into german shepherds and depending on what coloration they are they can be black as a puppy and change as they grow. I found it quite interesting.Unless it is truely a black shepherd then they will stay black.Regardless, absolutely adorable and beautiful baby shepherd.  : )

I am going to try to add this video, let's see what happens, it is Loki meeting Apollo. This is going to take some work to get these two calm. http://youtu.be/lYV4705KjXQ

Ok so we will see if it works.

His ears are now standing (I'm calling him batman) and he has gained weight, 17 lbs at 9 weeks old, starting to see a bit of brownish coloring and his coat is starting to look better now that he is getting a good quality food. This was a lucky shot of hime sitting still, but so far he knows to sit and wait, the refrigerator has food, the faucet has water, can give you his paw and loves praise. Potty training has not been fun for my son but Apollo will scratch at the door when he wants out but still has accidents. This I missed with Loki since he was already 4 months when we rescued. Well that's all for now.
