Chadly, I'm on my second resuce. Had the first one for seven years. I was in an apartment when I adopted her. Make sure you introduce the dog to the maintenance guys as sometimes they forget and just come in and do maintenance. I crated my first one for about two months. She never got into anything so she was never in a crate after that. Maintenance guy and apartment staff loved her.

Just make sure you have time for the exercise. Neither of my dogs have any problem with 8-12 hours, although I doubt that is common. You might need to find a friend to help on the overtime days. We walk at least three times a day, every day of the year.

Best wishes. Heidi changed my life...hope your dog has adds to your life too!

I think I'm pretty set on getting a GSD, I'm leaning more towards a male, as they seem to be more "laid back" but still need a routine and job to do. Thoughts?
