    Figured it was time to introduce this guy, formally!

    General Patton vom Winter Storm - 11 week old male

    He's a Nikon son if anyone knows who that is, which I am very excited about. He's currently proficient in sit, down, come, touch shake, knows his name, and being a pest. Very driven, eager, and confident - I love it! Already covered in stractches, bite marks, and bruises. I originally took him in to do some training/socialization away from his littermate and he just fit way too well- some of you know I've wanted a Nikon son for years, I couldn't pass up this opportunity.

    On to the pictures! Some good quality, some phone pics. Starting when he first came to stay through current.

    Recon and him are quick buds. Sir has met him a few times, and is of course in love as well. Frag hasn't gotten to meet him yet, as he's with my ex boyfriend who just returned from deployment. He's fitting in well, recovering from a UTI - growing and being crazy of course. Loving tug! Can't wait to see how he develops!

    Thank you guys! I'm really excited to see how his coloring changes. Frag was about that color when he was a puppy as well, just not as red. :D

    I remember Nikon from the same forum (I think) as Mick's Mom. He's a handsome guy :)

    Lies is on a few forums - I'm sure some of you have seen her around. :)

    I will be updating this with random puppy pictures as much as possible. I can't wait for the weather to subside so we can go out and I can get some videos and better pictures. We have agility this weekend... hoping my trainer can get some good videos of our foundation obedience work since we'll finally be in an indoor ring. :D

    I hope posting links to other forums is ok? Only place I can find some good groupings of his pictures!

    :D I love him. We train and compete together in a few different sports, he's a ton of fun and exactly what I want in a German Shepherd. Patton is a LOT like him so far- I really hope it stays that way! :)
