BorderKelpie I think he's beautiful!
Congratulations! and Thank you for opening your heart and home to a rescue pup!

HarleyTheGSD The hind legs are too straight. He is also very bulky with muscle. My guess is that he's mixed with some sort of mastiff breed. But no matter what he is, he is 100% adorable!

HarleyTheGSD You're definitely an amazing person for saving this guy's life.
I LOVE that face!
I'd say that he's a mix. The head/muzzle seems too large to be full GSD, though if you post a photo of him standing, we may be able to tell. He sure is gorgeous! Congrats!

inverse thank you all for the kind responses. this is indeed my first rescue, and i for some reason, cannot figure out what to name him yet. i am still trying to figure that part out, seeing how i don't want to just throw a name on him. deep thought is going into this :-)

Juliem24 We also have a rescue. It's great to see them blossom in a.couple months. From experience, limit his exposure to people and new places for a couple of weeks. Walk him round the block, hold off on the meet n'greet with neighbors, friends, relatives, dog parks for a couple of months. Gentle consistent quiet training with treats is OK

Maverick M He's beautiful! I too, believe in giving them a second chance. Bless you for taking him into your home! My rescue, Maverick, is also very affectionate and follows me and my husband everywhere. You're new friend is going to love you forever!

Zeeva Aww love rescues! You're wonderful for taking him into your life.

It may take a month or so for his true personality to blossom. Don't slack on the training during this month as it'll set the basis for his place in the pack.

Have you rescued before? Or is this your first pup?

He's gorgeous BTW! <3

Didn't see a name in there!

Pictures of my new friend :-)

hello all, my name is Charles, i will post a formal introduction where necessary, but i had to put these pics up ASAP. :-D
i just saved him a day before being euthanized. great with my daughter so far, just picked him up today.

however, cannot tell if he's mixed or not. some of my co-workers claim he may be full bred. maybe you guys can help me figure it out, other than the obvious fact that i need papers to tell! ;-D

not that it matters, he is a great companion so far, follows me everywhere, he's keeping his distance from my 11 month old daughter, every now and then he goes up to her and tries to lick her fingers, but since he's a little energetic, he took a step back and just kinda stayed around my lady and myself.
[EDIT: Also, i should mention, his hears pop almost straight up, right now they're just down because he's so tired, poor thing has been in the dog pound here so he probably hasn't had a good night's rest in quite some time.]
