Introducing, the Shephersaurus Rex!

Hello New Friends!

My roommate told me about this site right after I ag
dopted this stray little guy we nicknamed 'The Fuzz.' He is my very first German Shepherd, and to this date I have never trained let alone raise a dog all by myself. So there are a lot of 'newbies' we have experienced together, but hopefully meeting some cool people and learning some new things will keep me motivated and encouraged while I figure out how to control the raging pillow humping beast inside him (lol)

It's very nice to meet you all!
Any cool training books you would reccomend for a beginner Shepherd owner?

More photos please....plus I think we need the long version of how he came to live in your home.

My furs are not in storage, nor draped across the bed. They're peering out the kennel door just waiting to be fed.

Well, congrats! You will learn everything you need to know about your German Shepherd on this forum. And I would also like to see more pictures. You can never have too many.

I learned a lot here from reading, those stickies are worth visiting. Welcome

I love the name you gave him or at least his nick name Shephersaurus Rex. He does seems like he is mischievous haha. I'm sure you will do great as a solo trainer/owner!
