I'm new here too, and a German Shepherd Dog Lover! I lost my last rescued Shepherd in November to Cancer. And I got my new Puppy in Feb. 1st time I got a Shepherd as a puppy and not at a rescue. This new hand full is just the loving pup I needed. :)I have never had such a hard time training a Shepherd, she is great until she meets people she goes crazy with love and wants to kiss and jump and pulls me, she screams with happy excitement. I have started the four on the floor and sit when she does this, but she is a strong one, she's given me an asthma attack or two from the pulling.
other then that... ( which will take time I am sure ) she is a peach!
