German puppies are a handful. They stay in a puppy-like state for a long time, taking upwards of 3 years to really become the mature wonder-dogs people yearn for. I have a one year old right now and she has been binary in terms of ownership. I love her to bits one minute and the next I wish she had never stepped foot in my house. I know what she will eventually be like so I'm going to stick it out, but I am sorely tested day in and day out.
