Spent some time on the other forum but first time here. Our wonderful black male passed away last August at the young age of 9, cancer. Heartbreaking for the family. Finally decided early this year to get another pup. Another black male from a breeder in northern Montana. Will get him in a few weeks, another "buyer" will be bringing him down to Cali with hers and another's as we'll. Wish I could had the time to go up and pick him up but given the breeders location just not enough time for a road trip. Very excited and anticipating a lot of hard but enjoyable work. Reading up on food options, training, supplements, health considerations, etc.
