Mac and Conna Montgomery: German Shepherds Belle, Havana, Dakota, Sophie, Daisy, Maya, and Isko live with us on our farm in Mississippi. The “girls” and Isko are around cows, geese, ducks, chickens, and rabbits. Six of our seven grandchildren are around and involved with all the dogs and puppies. The youngest three love to play with the puppies everyday and help feed the “big” dogs. So every puppy going to their forever home has been “grandchild approved”.
