Who is America’s choice for celebrity pet sitter? Pet Sitters International (PSI), the educational association for professional pet sitters that established the industry’s standards for excellence in pet sitting, tells us it’s actress Jennifer Aniston.
In a poll on AOL‘s PawNation, pet owners voted Aniston as the celebrity they would trust to watch their favorite four-legged friends. This is very likely because Jennifer treats her own dogs with such loving care – they are truly family to her. She was honored at PSI’s 15th Quest for Excellence Convention in San Diego, CA, about a year ago.
One of her dogs is a White German Shepherd named Dolly. The White Shepherd is a direct descendant of the German Shepherd Dog and the two breeds share common roots and are similar in appearance. A white herding dog named Greif was the grandfather of Horand von Grafrath, the dog acknowledged as the foundation of all contemporary German Shepherd Dog bloodlines. The white coat comes from a recessive gene, and this dog’s high intelligence and loyalty have allowed him to become one of the most versatile working dogs one can find. I’m sure, if we could ask Jennifer, she would say these White Shepherds also make fabulous pets.
