Like many others, I have wondered if the OP is for real. That said, I have enjoyed all of your responses. Great advice and great stories about your dogs.

Who posts something like this on a German Shepherd loving forum? Something seems fishy.

I was glad when a doberman I was fostering was finally moved. And angry that they didn't do it before he attacked my 1 yr old dog who was then dog aggressive for the rest of her life. I was glad when I placed a dog, that my husband found, in the home of a friend where she would get more attention instead of being lost in the pack at my house.

OP - if you are reading this and sincere, please contact a rescue or even send me a private message. Like was said above...you both deserve to be happy.

He'll be better off at a more appropriate home and you'll feel relieved. I wish you had given him up a lot sooner. Why did you choose a GSD? He sounds completely normal., just not the dog (breed) for you.

My Jupiter is almost 5 months old now, and it's been a tremendous amount of work taking care of him. At least in my experience, GSDs are more effort than the others dogs I've had. Sadly, one of his littermates has been returned to the breeder. But "Jupie" is doing well with us, because I'm training him every day, exercising him 2X a day, going to training classes, socializing him, etc. It's a major investment, but I really don't think he would be doing very well without it.

So I'm reading this thread and I hear my wife from the other room say Ranger has figured out how to open our two trash cans that have the foot pedal thing on the bottom. - no joke

He did it on the small one in her office that had some McDonalds wrappings in it and apparently he just did it on the bigger one outside the kitchen.

Her office is usually closed when shes not in there and the kitchen is blocked off...and now I guess we'll have to move the kitchen trash can inside the blocked off area!

Is it a troll?


I meant I have a reactive dog that weighs almost as much as me. Now that is a problem. And still, I would not give the pup away.



Other than that I see everthing as normal in regards to my pup. He discovered the trash cans, so he got corrected and learnt, he still steals cookies, he loves to be vocal when his food is coming, he likes to clean on our pants after drinking water , he still nips every now and then, he loves mud, like a lot, he just discovered how to dig, he used to steal my dad's wood (my dad's new hobby). Our pup is picky with food every once in a while, he used to steal beer bottles (quite careful with glass btw), at 3 months old he ruined a small part of the wood floor in the living room, at 5 months old he ruined the wood blinds in one room.


He is 13 months, we are working on his reactivity. He does not longer touch the trash, he does not longer bite wood around the house, he does not longer steal bottles of beer, he does not longer touch my mom's floor jaja..... he is good at learning. He is a work in progress.
