Rex Shephard is International Puppy 2017. A Chicagoland native currently living in the greater Austin, Texas area, he has identified as puppy for over 15 years and has participated in BDSM play for more than 25. In addition to founding and sponsoring Texas Puppy Club, he is a full member of Discipline Corps and Austin Gears, and an associate member of North Star Kennel Club and Chicago Hellfire Club. Rex is a strong believer that the puppy and larger kinky communities must be fully inclusive and open to all sexual orientations and gender identities.
As a wolf-shepherd hybrid, he is known to both howl at the moon and mix up words such as innocent and mischievous. Rex encourages pups to play and be themselves honestly and openly everywhere, in a manner respectful of all, with a key principle being that puppy play and kink should be fun – and we shouldn’t be doing it if we’re not enjoying it. In addition, he has a passion for those pups in depression, suicide awareness, and PREP education. Rex is also part furry, and an avid SCUBA diver, backpacker, and mountaineer.
