Looks like Ashepoo's a better babysitter than grandpa.

Ever faithful to those they truly love - dogs are a wonder, and a gift.

Another reason to ask the question: why people would give the dog away when they have kids?

You can count on shepards to watch children. Our sheltie, Colleen, used to herd children who came to visit.

Dogs are the embodiment of love and loyalty wrapped up in fur.
Good Girl Ashepoo!
