Why did I pick the dog I have?

I've always had a thing for German Shepherds and I've decided to get one.

What do I like most about my dog?

How protective he is of me. How cute he is. How nice he is (sometimes )


What do I like least about my dog?

His nipping, when he poots in the house, and I guess when he tests me really.

I couldnt let this pup go to the pound at 5/6 weeks old.



He has a very expresive face and ears, and he is a really happy dog. Even when he destroys something .

Just when I thought he was getting past the destruction stage he tore into my matress today, I dont want to get into all of what he has destroyed right now.

We've had our issues but Im glad I got him because who knows what familly would have addopted this little destructive ball of fur from the pound and how fast he would have wound up back there. Im glad I crammed as much as possible before picking him up cause otherwise Ild have beaten him silly by now, he is a destructive *******, Im glad he hasnt destoyed anything nice.

I wanted a large, intelligent, loyal guard dog/working dog with minimal barking....

RR and Giant fit that.

Why did you pick the dog you have?
Having decided to have a dog, I wanted to home a rescue, and found a lovely cross of two breeds I'm very fond of in a local shelter. Bonnie was a 'long term resident' (no-one really understood why, other than she could get a little over-excited) and became the shelter mascot having spent a year there waiting for a home.

What do you like most about your dog?
Loyalty, her really trying to understand and please. Seeing her run free and being healthy and happy.

What do you like least about your dog?
Something she can't help - dropping hair everywhere, especially in the heat

When I say : "Because his breed makes The best guard dogs in the world." I mean my breed. I was not refering to any one elses dog if you didnt notice

Let me elaborate. Im saying that Caucasian Ovcharkas arre the best guard dogs in the world. Is that clear enough?

1. Why did you pick the dog you have?
I didn't pick him, he picked me. He was a stray in the shelter and was due to be euthanized. Taken off the adoption floor due to stress. I took him out and was going to place him through rescue (he's a full-blooded, beautiful yellow lab). I fell madly in love with him and kept him.

2. What do you like most about your dog?
He's beautiful and full of personality. And very loving and in-tune with me.

3. What do you like least about your dog?
He can be quite hyper when he wants to be! And mouthy! But I still love it.

I had a neighbor stop by to show me her new puppy. She mentioned that they would be going to the shelter if homes were not found soon, then asked me if I wanted one...off we went...and that's how I got Addie. She is a husky mix. I love the softness of her, the sweetness of her...altho she is a bit aloof, not a cuddler. What I don't like is that she never barks at people...only animals. She loves to dig, and has a strong prey drive and such energy that I have to really keep an eye on her or she'd be off in the woods in a second. She sheds TONS...lol...so you have to enjoy brushing.

I got Hammie because I've always loved GSDs. I went to see his parents and found them to be everything I could dream of, intelliegent, gorgeous, healthy...I just fell in love. I visited the puppies and in no time at all, it was Hammie that would run to me when the other 7 kept playing. I love that he is so protective, that he barks at people and looks intimidating..so he is my superior watchdog. I love how playful he is (he adores Addie!) how expressive, how intelligent.....but mostly how much he loves to be cuddled. He'll just watch me so lovingly...then sigh so contentedly. We have an amazing bond. I do adore him. What I don't especially like is that he isn't socialized...which is MY fault, not his. We don't see anyone and I didn't realize how important it was. It was harsh winter when I brought him home, so we didn't get out. It's something I try to work on now, but isn't really an issue in my world. I am just extremely careful when someone does come around.
