Meet Lady, a lively 10-month-old German Shepherd/Bulldog mix, belonging to Randall and Allona Sipper of Luverne. Lady is known for her boundless energy and playful demeanor. She is an outside dog that enjoys exploring her surroundings. Lady’s favorite pastime is playing with sticks, often favoring one’s twice her size. Her favorite treat is bacon, and she has a soft spot for naps, belly rubs, and quality playtime with her puppy sister, Pixie Pearl.

Born as the only girl in her litter, Lady has distinctive all-white feet that add to her charm. According to Lady’s owner, the pup has an adventurous palate, known for devouring anything she finds, even if it’s not meant to be eaten. Sipper affectionately describes Lady as “as trained as a dirt road dog gets,” showcasing the pup’s independent and spirited nature.
