It's been almost 2 years since I put my 16y/o lab down. I'm ready for a new dog but don't want a lab again. He was a good family dog during the time where I lived at home with my parents and 3 siblings. Now I'm single, living alone in my house and want something a little larger and more protective of me and my home. I originally wanted a german shepherd, then Wolfman on here emailed me about his Shiloh Shepherd and I've been set on one ever since. I tried to get one from his breeder but she couldn't get her dogs to breed successfully. I stumbled upon another breeder with pups that were almost ready to go out the door and snagged one. At a little over 8 weeks he is already 27 pounds. I talked to the breed founder who did the evaluation and she expects him to be 31-33 at the shoulder and top out at 140 or above. Here are the most recent pics the breeders sent me. I am picking him up next weekend. I'm thinking I want to name him Mauser, but that might change if you all can help me think of some more German names.

Mauser is a day over 13 weeks and 41lbs last time I weighed him. He's eating up 6 cups of food a day and still not an ounce of fat on him. Just loose skin and big bones. No accidents in the house, and he's making it through the night in his kennel. I can let him outside without a leash and he stays nearby. He knows sit, down, and will even shake. He also knows here (come) and most of the time minds me very well unless he gets too excited and distracted. We've been on many car rides and outings to get him socialized. I'll probably start some kind of formal training in the next few weeks or month. He's stuck to chewing on his bones and toys, no furniture as of yet. Real laid back and behaved, but loves to talk and be mouthy compared to other dogs I know. The vet was impressed about his size and temperment and said he's never seen another dog like him. Hopefully these pics will post, if not anyone care to host them? I took the new pics at around 11 weeks and I can see a lot of change just over the past 2 weeks. His ears are standing up for longer periods of time now and he's gotten taller and longer. I swear if I sit and look at him long enough I can see him grow!

Here are pics of Mauser at 8 weeks (the 2 below)

and the puppies father "SAMSON"

Here are some around 11 weeks.

Thanks for hosting for me mulligan!

8 weeks old and 27 pounds....Holy Shit!

Remind me not to break into your house!

Good looking dog.

Mauser sounds like a good name!

Letting him eat the neighbor's cats and small children would probably be cheaper than buying all the kibble you're going to need.

Hogan. Not exactly German, but he looks like a Hogan to me.

if you could translate the names you all are mentioning into what they mean that would help. I don't want to find something I like then have it turn out to mean somethin weird.

But my best friend had a German Shepard named Duke. Great dogs.

pics aren't working for me, either. I want to see this dog.

Congratulations. I am sure you will find that this is one amazing dog. 27 pounds at 8 weeks, 140 or so full grown -- that sounds about right. They look twice that big when they get pissed and their hair stands up.

Keep us posted on training and progress. Whatever name you decide on, expect the dog to know it and respond to it pretty much instantly.

Personally, I like your choice of Mauser. But it might confuse people. When I tell people my dog's name is Chopper, a lot of them ask "Chomper?" No, Chopper. You might have people calling the dog "Mouser" simply because they aren't familiar with the name. Of course, if I don't like the person, I just tell them my dog's name is "Instant Death". At his size, they aren't eager to test it.

If you want something really scary, how about "Postal Employee"?
