Thanks for the introduction forum. I'm pretty new here, though have lurked a bit.

My GS is a wonderful boy, now about 3 yrs old, 100lbs. Was found wandering by law enforcement, no chip, no collar and (then) about 20 lbs underweight a year and a 3/4 ago. He was being foster housed with a local breeder who I'd called looking for a pup.

He's a magnificent dog! Calm, very confident, extremely well mannered in the house, gentle, loving and playful. He was extremely reactive to other dogs when I first brought him home but over time, with training and a lot of positive reinforcement, that has almost (almost!) completely resolved.

From what I've seen, this place is a real treasure and I'm happy to be here! I've seen a couple threads that really seem to have a problem with GS that are white. If its really a problem, I'll go elsewhere but I'm hoping we can fit in.

Hi, and thank you! I know I'm biased, but this picture doesn't do him justice. He's movie star handsome! Thanks for the warm welcome!

I should add, your dog is also a beauty!

Aw, thanks! Would love to see more pics of yours. What's his name? That picture you posted is awesome. :)

His name is Hans. Hansi is his casual nickname. He refuses to let me take pics w cell phone! The pic I posted was from a professional photog on the beach who was snapping away while we happened to be there. Believe me, when I have something other than a blur, I'll share!!
