How affectionat is your German Shepherd?
How affectionate is your German Shepherd?
I am hoping to acquire a little boy in December and I, like all doggy parents, am hoping he turns out to be a big lovebug.
I currently have an 11-month-old Sheltie named Bucky. Bucky is a cutie pie and a super happy boy. He is very playful. But on the affection-O-meter, I'd say he rates maybe a 2. He will lay across my lap on the couch or even spoon with me on the couch for up to 20 or maybe even 30 minutes at a time and will lay near the area where I am a lot of the time. But boy, he does not seem to enjoy being petted, will usually back away from it and never asks for it. Shelties aren't necessarily big lickers or tail-waggers and Bucky is no exception. He has never wagged his tail or once licked me.
Anyway, I'd say, all in all, he scores about a 2.
I love my Bucky and will always nurture and enjoy him just the way he is. But I must say that I do look forward to the love and affections of a German Shepherd(hopefully).
