I think Easton and I bonded the moment I put his leash on him at the airport. He has been great these few days since we met each other. He loves my daughter and is always jumping on her and mouthing her hair and cloths lol until I come and he stops, (then being the ball busting little boy he is turning to be, he starts right up again, as soon as I look away)- My wife oves him and he will lay by her if I am not there.
With me, he follows me around, even out side I have him off leash already ( just front yard and back-we are off of the road no danger) in fact to my amazement he has already mastered the Sitz command and will auto sit as I back away and he comes and sits looking up at me-
But I think the moment I noticed a bond was the other night, I was feeling very sick late at night-(sorry was in the bathroom) he followed me and started to whine and keep trying to lay on me as I was sick in the bowl of horror.
It was strange and I didn't pay attention at the time as I was to busy with stomach pains -had a case of food poision- bit looking back he knew I was sick and he reacted and tried to help. I was alone no one was home it was just me and Easton.
There is just nothing like a bond,friendship,trusting partner like a German Shephard- until you experience it people just don't understand.
