TO THE LEE FAMILY SHEPHERDS!

Owner: Missy Lee
name is Missy Lee, and I am a new member of UWSC.
I work for the US Army as a management analyst, and a base closure in
Germany brought me to my current assignment in Warren,
Michigan. My family and I settled down in a small town of St.
Clair, 50 miles north of Detroit. My husband Cliff,
who also works for the Army as an IT specialist, and I have 2 kids,
Kayla 4 and Aidan 3.
My husband, a former military police officer, always loved German
Shepherds. Although he was never a K-9 handler, he had a team
of K-9 units under his operation. Needless to say GSD is the
dog of his choice and he owned several GSDs himself. As for
me, my childhood family dog was a big German Shepherd who took care of
me as I was her "puppy". So after returning to the USA and
settling down, first thing we wanted to do was to get a GSD
puppy. While we were looking, we came across some White
Shepherds web sites and we fell in love with them!
Now we have 3 dogs - Sasha (Black & Tan GSD), Faith (White
Shepherd) and our new addition Snow White (Von Tasz White Shepherd) -
they all get along nicely.
As for the plan for our dogs, Sasha is very high energy (loves agility)
and thrives to work. My husband is thinking about being a SAR
volunteer and Sasha might be a good candidate to be his
partner. Faith is very loving but not exactly high
energy. She enjoys cuddling and taking care of Snow White and
my 2 little kids. She is working on her CGC and hopefully she
can go on to be a therapy dog someday. Of course our new
shining star, Snow White is still too young -- so we shall
see. I know her mom Kyla was a "natural" herding
dog, so maybe she could give it a try in herding too. That's
the fun part of owning a GSD - they are so all-around perfect dogs -
the possibility is endless.
Although we have a long way to go - when we retire from the government
service we want to move to UP and breed/rescue
I am looking forward to meeting all of you.
