Hi

First I wanted to say Welcome to the Board. welcome

I am self employed. I am married no children but we have fur kids.

German Shepherds: Cheyenne, DeeDee, Lakota (all LC) and Raya is West German Showlines.

Cats: FuzzyButt who was a feral kitten I rescued, got her spayed and tried to find her a home. Some of the GSD's don't like cats at all so she started her life in my insulated garage. Took her to a Cat Rescue group, but she didn't do well. So momma went and got her and brought her home. She now has the heated/AC basement to run and play in. Loves to lay in the sunshine coming in the windows. I have a feral group outside, her momma who I haven't been able to trap, she has been in the trap before but I had no low cost options for S/N. Her name is Tomi (black & white Tuxedo) she was here for 2 years before she had FuzzyButt (LC grey/black with tiger stripes). She had another litter this summer and they are all tom cats; Hulk (grey and white), Tippy (black with a white tip on the tail) and Jet (all black). My mission this spring to to trap and get some/all of the S/N.

welcome greet

I will get pictures up in the proper threads.

thank you for the warm welcome! smile and i bet you have a handful with those four, haha. Angel isn't showline, or registered.wish he was though. he's simply my best friend, and a brother to my daughter, my daughter is 4 months old and he loves her very much. very gentle with her. i recently moved to youngstown, which has a ban on apbt's. so unfortunately, against my own will i had to adopt my last dog kyzer out to a family member, those of who he's known his whole life. it killed me, and i didn't quit crying until i seen angels lil polar bear lookin face. i was looking to adopt, and searching threw petfinder, classified adds for found neglected puppies, but they were few and far between when it came to what breed or tempermant i was looking for. wanted one to grow up with my daughter. and then i found angel, it was in the middle of december, he was practically newborn, and the picture of him was outside in a kennel piled with snow. so i did some reading up, said they were family oriented dogs, very smart, and protective, which was a great match, so we went and took a look at him, he was a result from a BYB, and he was the last one, mother was a white, father was a sable. he was filthy i mean FILTHY, smelled horrible like feces. the guy wanted 40 bucks. so we took him home and it's been awesome with him ever since, picked up on house training so quick, i think it took two weeks tops. i will never regret finding him, aside from the situation he was in that i regret even though i had no control over that. he deserved better so i took on that responsibility. and that is his story! smile

Thank You and Hello to All:

I have a 6 year old GSD, two 9 year old Yorkie s and a true "Heinz 57" that is a beagle in disguise along with a 17 year old cat. All my animals are rescues or emergency adoptions. This past year we lost our 16 year old lab and a older cat. My GSD was adopted last year and the "57" this year. All have integrated well and the cat remains Alpha. My children are grown and we enjoy outdoor activities.

I am looking forward to getting ideas and support for the GSD. We have come a long way in a year but he needs his job description defined when out walking. Training classes will start next week.

Hello, everyone! Thank you for the warm welcome.

I discovered this site while looking for information on treibel ball herding.

Though I have had dogs throughout my life, I'm a first time parent to a GSD. I adopted, Luna, an intact 10 mo. old AKC WGSD. I have had her now for 2 mos. Her previous owner could no longer care for her needs due to her declining health.

Luna came into my life at the right time - I was finally ready to invest in a new relationship after a year since we lost our beagle, Rikki suddenly. Luna joined a house full of cats all adopted/rescued: Roxy (11 yo CFC Ragdoll), Riley (11 yo CFC Tonkinese), Belle (9 yo stray calico), Morris (1.5 yo stray Manx-Orange Tabby) and Sot (11 mo grey tabby).

I enjoy training my dog. In the 2 mos. that Luna have been with us she has since learned to walk on the treadmill, be recalled w/ a whistle, play fetch and simple nose work games/puzzles, and walk off-leash. I wish I can train my cats the same.

I'm looking forward to learn from others GSD fur-parents. My dream is to eventually be able to join competition, but for now I am taking my time to discover Luna's talents after all she just turned 10 mos.

Hello, and thanks for letting me join the forum
My husband and I adopted a GSD December 2013 from ProjectRescue in Chicago ( great group!). Our only history on him is that he was being trained for protection and search, then he had an injury to his paw and wasn't considered worth the money to fix. Project Rescue pulled him from the shelter, there was nothing found wrong with his paw, but he has severe HD in one hip, moderate in the other. So, rescue surmised that he was dumped because of his hips. He was 10 months old.
I've had and raised dogs (and all sorts of other critters) all my life, but never lived with a GSD. This dog is exceptional, as it seems all GSDs are! I have been leaning on people in forums to help with his dog aggressive stuff, his Velcro stuff, his training needs and all the good stuff that comes along with this wonderful, smart guy.
I appreciate the help and advice, and the fact that we are not the only ones who are not allowed to close the bathroom door.
We raised Siberian Huskies previously, and I've had everything from snapping turtles to roosters to calves, goats and assortment of farm dogs, some inside dogs, a previous rescue (Afghan Hound), and probably some pet bugs. Rudy the Rescue is the most enjoyable interactive puzzle creature I've had!
