GSDBriard Thanks!

I wasn't really planning on a third, we lost our GSDXCollie mix last year and i've been busy raising a Briard puppy and my other German Shepherd is about 8 years old now. Luckily the senior GSD is very well adjusted, in fact she's a perfect "foster dog mom" so i've enjoyed fostering. She helps teach young dogs what they need to learn and is just a wonderful example of the breed as far as her temperament goes.

The Briard is still young so I was hesitant to raise two young dogs. It's usually more of a bad idea than a good one. My Briard has been in obedience training since he was 10 weeks old, he's a very solid, well adjusted dog..doesn't chew, bene potty trained since he was 15 weeks old, just a good all around dog.

This new guy seems easy to train and at one point I believe he was someone's pet. I'm not really sure why he ended up in a shelter. He was crate trained and house broken when he came in to my home and walks wonderfully on a leash. He is so well behaved I did my own search trying to find out if someone happened to be missing 2 nice looking male GSDs because it's just so hard to believe they were just found as street dogs! Someone taught them something at some point! Street dogs just don't come into a home this well behaved!

Uh oh...foster failure!

I heard about 2 young GSD pups (10 months old) needing immediate foster and offered. I have fostered Shepherds in the past so they know they can usually count on me in last minute situations!

They are both gorgeous, one found a home almost instantly and he left yesterday..the other has just bonded so well to both me and my husband. We were unsure how he would act around our other male dog but as soon as his brother left he calmed down quite a bit. It's like he's almost relieved he doesn't have to watch him 24/7. He was always kind of on guard with his brother around.

So...this is Watson, 10 month old German Shepherd. I can't believe he ended up in the shelter! He's such a friendly guy!

He got a bath yesterday. Apparently German Shepherd radar ears lose reception once they get wet. hehe
