This question is coming from a first-time adopter and I would like to hear what people with rescue experience have to say. I'm not talking about whether GSDs are unique as a breed. I don't think it is up for debate that they have certain exercise requirements and a need for dedicated training. I'm more interested in what specifically you tell adopters in regards to GSDs needing to be treated differently than other dogs. I've heard both sides ("this ain't a poodle and you can't treat them that way!" And "all any dog needs is love"). So I'm curious what you believe and your reasons for it. I'm just starting to get involved in breed-specific rescue (huskies) and there is definitely a fair bit of debate about what kind of homes would best suit them. Thoughts?
