I am not a big, tough dog, I am the German Shepherd. I am sensitive and so in tune with you that I hurt when you are upset with me and I do not know what to do. Please do not ever lose your patience with me, I love you and I want to make you happy but please provide me with the training and stimulation that I need.
I am silly, goofy and love to make you laugh, I am the German Shepherd. I will have bursts of puppy play, all the way through my final days. My hips will likely go out; it is just a matter of when. Please do not let this stop you from adopting me; I have so much more than good hips to give. I am not going to be the easiest dog to own, but if you provide me with all the tools I need, I promise I will be the best dog you have ever owned. If you love me unconditionally and treat me as family, I will protect you with my life to the best of my ability for all my days to come, I am your protector, your German Shepherd dog.
I will be great with your human children, but please do not let them take advantage of me. I really am not a fan of your kids riding me and stealing bones from me. Please teach them to respect me so I can do my job, and be their forever-faithful companion and guardian. I am the family dog, the German Shepherd dog.
I am totally fine with your friends and family coming over. I love to make new friends too, but do not forget to properly introduce me so I do not mistake them for a stranger that is coming over to hurt you. I am your protector, the German Shepherd dog.
I am eager to please and will be everything you want me to be, as long as you understand all my stages and my breed as well as provide me with everything I need. I am the German Shepherd Dog.
