It stinks. I've waited literally 10 years for a Shepherd. Our previous dog was extremely dog aggressive, so she was a one dog house maker. When we put her to sleep in after 12 years I've been looking for a shepherd. I sold a bunch of stuff to be able to afford a GS and this one literally dropped into our lap for $50.
When I left to get him a crate today, she literally slept on my wife with the 3.5 y.o. next to him. He just laid down in my lap for 20 minutes with his head on my lap and his belly asking to be rubbed.
I have a call in to the rescue about him. He sits, shakes, mostly comes when called, and seems like a sweetie, but this kid thing is a deal breaker.
