“Sampson” Guardian Jakobi Von Gottshcalk
He’s doing great! He’s about 31 pounds now. We’re in the middle of a puppy kindergarten class and he’s by far one of the most calm and focused, haha. He always eats well at meals but he’s not particularly food driven in training so we always bring toys to class and a tug session is usually his favorite reward. Our vet LOVES him, says he’s easily one of the most confident yet friendly rotties he’s ever seen, a lot of the ones he sees are already people-shy at 12 weeks!
He does great in the house – he doesn’t have free reign yet of course but he mostly knows what is his and what is not…he does like to snatch socks and trot around with them, but he usually brings them to us! We absolutely adore him.
Thank you so much for the email replies over the last couple of days! I know you are a very busy person and I totally understand getting behind. I do really, REALLY appreciate the answers though, especially on the food issues. I think eventually we will try to make the switch to raw ourselves…just doing the research, looking at grinders, etc., right now.
Samson continues to be the star puppy at puppy class, the instructor likes to use him to warm up the shy puppies (had one that got slightly traumatized by an overly friendly and very large labrador puppy – Samson was twice her size but was polite and gentle and soon she was playing like they were best buds!) and to demonstrate the new things she’s trying to teach. We are so stinking proud of him! He really has just the most amazing personality and willingness to learn and do.
Stay well and safe!
Liz, Matt, and Samson

Just thought you might like to see a quick little video of Samson (Jakobi). He’s almost a year now, we can’t believe it! He’s about 105 pounds now, he’s in his second obedience class and we’re starting on some nosework training. We love him so very much.
Hope you’re doing well! Been following the progress of your little rescued peanut, such a sweetheart.

“Farva” Guardian Javier Von Gottschalk
My puppy(Farva) had his first vet visit this past week and the Vet said everything looked good. He weighed a whopping 24lbs. He has been a bundle of fun and I cannot wait to see what the next few months bring. His next vet visit is August 29th. I’ll let you know how things go and send some pictures later this month!
