We got a new pup but not a GSD
We have been working with a trainer with Charlie to address her dog reactivity. The pup who is 10 months old a lab mix named Hershey moved in this weekend after what was supposed to be a trial run. He is cute young dog who is very submissive and Charlie mothers him. The trainer hopes he will become a diabetic alert dog or a therapy dog for me to take to work.. He is a great pup but he is not a GSD . I miss Lucky and Daisy so much. Lucky has been gone almost a year short a week. I just don't have the enthusiasm I did with Daisy or Lucky.I'm in a situation where I think I'm standing in mine own way. Do dogs grow on you? Charlie is so much my husband's dog more than mine. and we don't have the bond I had with Daisy and Lucky who we had from pups, well Daisy from 8 weeks and Lucky from about 10 months. Charlie and Hershey are having a great time. I meet with the trainer tonight any suggestions or past experiences with bonding with a new dog. The other thing I've wondered is that Daisy and Lucky were my first dogs and both were with me during some rough times. I just expected I would be more excited but maybe I'm not seeing how great this could be cause when you say dog I picture a German Shepherd.
