What Happened to Shawlein.com?

The website on Shawlein.com went down in early 2018. I monitored the site to see if it would come back up, and, it never did. After it was abandoned the domain itself completed its lifecycle and went back up for sale, so, I picked it up. I reached out to Linda on several occasions and have been unable to contact her. Her Facebook page has been inactive for 9 months now as well. I hope she is ok.

I made backups of the content on that site in case she allows me to post some of it here. In the meantime, it’s just archived on my hard drive, although, unfortunately, some people around the world are posting it without providing credit.

If you’re looking for her book, The Illustrated Standard for the German Shepherd Dog, you can pick it up here on Amazon, and it may just be the best book ever written on German Shepherd Dogs:

Here’s what the Shawlein website used to look like, courtesy of Wayback Machine:

  1. RIP, Linda. Lost too early. Thank you for everything you left us.

  2. Linda passed away on Friday July 27, 2018. She will be remembered.
    Maybe you can contact her husband or children for permission to post her content.

    • That’s the wrong Linda Shaw. She was not married and had no children.

  3. Can you please contact me so I can get you in contact with her executor/best friend. I know she thinks the website domain is still Linda’s.


  4. Hey.
    Back then, I purchased the ebook copy of the GSD book. But since the website went down I cannot acess it in flux player. I am very sad about this, because I cannot afford to buy the book. Does anyone know how I can access it again? Or if it’s just not possible since the site is down and all? I even still have the emails of the purchase process. Idk I just love her book and thought maybe someone has an idea! When I open fluxplayer, it doesnt even show there..

    Thanks in advance
