Adopting 4 Year Old GSD Male

First off, I apologize if this is in the wrong section.


For the record, I'm 24, I do daily activities, and live with just my wife, and my 2 1/2 year old son.

A friend of my mothers owns a 4 year old GSD, she is moving into an apartment due to a divorce and wants to re-home him. My mom mentioned this to me and I agreed.

I know a bit about the breed, I'm not a novice. My question is, how long does it take for the dog to establish me as his new owner/pack leader? Training suggestions or tips, to help inform him, I'm the pack leader and to help from a bond? Is it too old for name change?

Also! He is still intact, I have no plans on Stud'ing him out, and can get him neutered ASAP. But will it be necessary?

Also, any other informative information would be very grateful.

Thanks for any and all replies.
