Crunchy is no problem. I might have a use for him.

is it a german shepherd thing to be weird around kids??

mine both love kids. My male and my youngest daughter both grew up together...they are only about 6 months apart age wise. You could walk right into my house...kick me in the ball and slap my wife...but if you were to come within 10 feet of the kid, that dog would probably bite you in half.

nice timing...I was just going to suggest that Arsen should adopt Johnny Rockets for a weekend as a trial. DOn't think he can lick his own balls, but other than that, he's a dog!

If I could do that, I would have no reason to ever leave the house.

i would say that an improperly socialized and trained german shepherd is one of the most dangerous animals you can own. they have to be trained, and respond very well to training. they have to be part of the family, and if you tie one up on a chain and leave it alone in the back yard it will not do well mentally or emotionally.

some german shepherds can learn a behavior or trick in as few as 5 repetitions, but it can take 90 or more repetitions to break a bad habit

a properly socialized and trained GSD is one of the best dogs in the world

maybe if you pet him once in awhile he'd let you

With a rescue..you never know what they've been thru before they get to you.

My dog is a rescue (lab/boxer mix). I got her as a puppy for this reason. Found her on petfinder.com you can search by breed, age, and mileage from your zip. Should be able to find something there.

There's never any love on here for giant dogs. Great Danes are the best dogs ever. Sweet, gentle, smart, snuggly, loving, and great watch dogs. I'd have a herd of them if we could afford it.
