Greetings from Charlotte, NC :-)
I'm Drea & I've been stalking this board for several months, so I figured it was time to join and introduce myself. My other half & I have both always wanted a GSD, and now we are actively searching (and researching) for our new family member.
Had several different breeds of dogs before, but never a GSD...interested in a good companion dog, thinking we want a male, and preferably one that's rather large. We're somewhat open to rescuing, but are going back and forth between that and a puppy.
Right now, we live in a large apartment (I know!) but it does have several large grassy areas and a built-in dog park. The landlords are totally welcoming of GSDs, we have at least 2 neighbors who we regularly see walking theirs.
Ok, that's about it for now, any advice/etc is welcome! Thanks! :-)
