Hi, Sandra. I figured this is where you were. I sure remember you sharing Hunter's story with ProHeart6 and your more recent loss of Buck (so sorry). Give Kaycee and Honey ear scritches for me.
Emmy, I am not an expert on GSDs. Along my childhood and teenager years, my parents rescued four -one of which had to be rehomed to a family with no kids- and all I know about them just comes from my experience living with them as pets, not as either show or work dogs. The only one they had as a pup was after I left home. I'd be happy to answer any question from my limited experience if I can though.
Ours wouldn't be a show or work dog either.. Just spoiled.
