Baratheon von Haven aka Barry
I love all my German Shepherd puppies. They look like a pack of teddy bears – roly-poly, cuddly, and funny little living stuffed toys. But it is hard not to have favorites and Barry is my favorite from this litter. He was a big pup and a cuddly pup. Barry just couldn’t get enough cuddling and to this day adores his humans. I recognized in him at the age of 4 weeks, the perfect service dog. It was so obvious from that early time that he was the ideal German Shepherd service dog having so many necessary traits – he was perfect for the work. He was an incredibly smart puppy and quick to learn, but also a problem solver figuring things out all on his own without instruction. We initially chose to keep Barry as a service dog prospect but by 6 months old we realized we had something very special in this dog and decided to keep him as a stud dog.
