Shepherd by Jean Reeves and
Have you always hoped to find a
definitive, thorough reference book to address all of the questions
you may have about your white shepherd? Are you hoping to provide a
loving home to a new white shepherd but still have some lingering
questions that you hope to have answered before you take the final
steps toward ownership? Or are you just a fan of the breed and want
to learn more? This book may be just what you need!
Description: Distinguished by its stunning white coat and
unmatched versatility, the White Shepherd is a direct descendant of
the German Shepherd Dog. Although traditional German Shepherd
devotees have shied away from solid white dogs, thousands of
enthusiasts have embraced the beautiful, talented White Shepherd and
established it as a breed unto itself. Whether on the farm, in the
ring, in the water or in the home, the White Shepherd is an
exemplary companion and competitor for the right owner.
