Smile New member, GS rescue

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!

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!!
