I have been reading the forums for about 3 months now before we decided on making an adoption. My girlfriend and I knew we wanted a GSD, however wanted to learn more about them before we made the jump in.
We live in Northern Cali and found Westside GS Rescue in Los Angeles that we were very impressed with. After a couple months of searching we found one that we thought would be a great fit for our family. So Saturday morning we woke up at 04:30am and made the drive to LA.
He is around 2 years old and is absolutely a great dog. He has a great temperament and definitely knows his basic commands. We are incredibly lucky as he was in a high kill shelter on Wednesday (Christmas) and they were able to get him out and in our arms by Saturday.
We can't wait to do some more learning here and add to the great site. Thanks everyone.
