Hi, I wanted to introduce our 15 week old silver standard boy. His name is Mercury and joined our family a week ago. We have been looking for the right standard for a while now and were lucky enough to find him. He came from a back yard breeder who couldn't place their pups. A back yard breeder was not where I was planning to get our new family member, but he was on the way to the pound so he joined our family instead.
So far he is a VERY laid back boy which is rather nice. As he grows he will be learning to be a therapy dog, as long as he likes it. We also have a wonderful Mini shar pei girl named Xin-Jie. She is very happy to have a little (all though he is already the same size as she is) brother. I also have 3 kids, age 5, 9, and 11. Mercury will be a 4H show dog as well. He is already 30 lbs so I think he is going to be a fairly good sized boy. We had a wonderful standard in the past who recently passed away from cancer so feel lucky to have another standard as part of the family.
