Pet of the Week: Isla the German Shepherd

The island theme continued in the Short household when Suzanne and Stephen brought home a German shepherd puppy to the delight of children Harris (4) and Arran (1).

Isla, as the latest addition to their Grangemouth home is known, is a fun-loving 19-week-old who loves life and the little Shorts.

“She loves playing with the children and is very protective of them,” said Suzanne. “We got her from a breeder in Bathgate. Stephen has always loved German shepherds because they are a loyal breed and Isla was one of a litter of nine from a good line.”

Isla is eating well and growing fast, but she is still a little wary of other dogs when taken out on walks. The family hope puppy classes will help her socialise with other canines.

“She will help us all get fit,” said Suzanne. “With all the walks we’ll be doing.”
