  2. Hello all

    Attention All New Members
    Hello! My name is Zayne. I am new to the forum and I'll mostly be posting about my rescue Solomon who is a 3yo 87 lb German Shepherd Lab Mix (or so we think, he might have a little Husky in there somewhere too, also maybe Sharkdeerbearrabbitbatcariboucat), and my 1-2 year old 40 lb rescue...
  3. Helping Calm/Stop Excessive Barking

    General Dog Forum
    Hi! So I have an 8 month old german shepherd who is VERY vocal. I personally don't mind him being so vocal as it helps me to better understand/know when he needs or wants something. However, we live with 2 other dogs and he LOVES them both. When I take them all out in the morning and when we go...
  4. House Aggression

    General Dog Forum
    Hello! So I have an almost 8 month old german shepherd named Eli. Since I got him at 11 weeks, I socialized him in every way I could think of, he was and is constantly around people as well as other dogs. I can have him off-leash on a hike or at the park and know he will do perfectly. However, a...
  5. Keeping the dog in the yard suggestions?

    General Dog Forum
    Hello everyone! I have a 5 month old german shepherd named Eli. He's off-leash about 95% of the time, except for when we're in a parking lot or walking on the road. He's always been very good about staying within the yard (we have no electric or traditional fence). A few weeks ago he began...
  6. Supplements?

    General Dog Forum
    Hello! So I've got a 4 1/2 month old german shepherd. Previous to deciding to get Eli I obviously did research on the breed and the biggest health problems to come up were joint related (i.e. hip dysplasia). I was curious to know if there were any specific supplements one would recommend to...
  7. Dog doesn't like children?

    General Dog Forum
    Hello, so I have a 4 1/2 month old german shepherd who's the sweetest. We've gone on walks/hikes where he's seen some children but other than that hasn't had much exposure. I brought him to a family event where children were going to be. He would do his protective bark every time a child would...

  9. Has anyone had experience with panosteitis??? (growing pains)

    General Dog Forum
    Hello everybody! So yesterday when I came home from work I brought my 4 month old german shepherd for a walk. He didn't seem very into it and when we were walking back to the car he was pulling me like crazy to it. When we got home, he didn't want to get out and when he finally did he went...
  10. Whining & Biting

    General Dog Forum
    Hello, so I have a 3 1/2 month old german shepherd, we've had him for a little over a month and he's made great progress. In the beginning he was extremely bitty, would chase after your feet, pant legs, arms, hands, you name it. He's gotten a lot better but he randomly goes in "attack mode"...

    Attention All New Members
    I love all breeds, because I can appreciate the particular need they were bred for. My top of the list faves are: Rottweilers, Dobes, German Shepard. I love their intellect and energy. Oh... and Rhodesian Ridgebacks, partly for sentimental reasons: my neighbors Ridgeback adopted me. They are...

    Attention All New Members
    Posting this so that I can get my permissions to get some advice. I have an 8 year old 107lb German Shepherd named Blitz, and I found out tonight that he has torn his CCL. I am leaning towards TPLO surgery, but would love to hear others' experiences. I also have a few questions to go along with...

    Dog Pictures Forum
    I don't think I posted any photo's of my little guy here yet. I've had him a little under three weeks now and we're really enjoying him. So far we've started puppy classes and will hopefully be able to start going out to the IPO club next week. He's really putting on the weight and yet is very...

  17. Any Suggestions on What Mix of Breeds my Puppy is?

    Attention All New Members
    Hi everybody, I'm new to both this forum and owning a puppy. I've been raising my little companion Grizzly for over 2 months now (he's 4 months old). I didn't acquire him under ideal circumstances (I didn't get a chance to meet the pup's parents), but I was told that he was a "shepherd & black...

    Hello, nice to meet you all! I am new to this forum, and I am writing from Italy, so sorry for my English! I browsed a few of your threads, and you look very nice, so I thought I'd ask you a question that has been bugging me for a while now - what breed is my dog? It's not like I care too...
