Shadow Hunter

Hi. I am Amanda. My gsd is black, newly one years old and incredibly nice. Unless you are the 1 out of 50 she just doesn't care for. I can't explain that part.

She makes herself (her huge self) as small as possible when around a small dog. She makes herself as large as possible if she doesn't trust something. Brave but so nice. So smart. Not a cuddler but when she's happy, her face and tongue give it away and it tickles me because she prefers a serious face and will try to pull the tongue in as if it betrays her.

I am so glad I can go barefoot again and don't have to jump over her and avoid her teeth into my bed. Hashtag landshark.

I still have scars from all of that bite inhibition stuff.

But it was worth it.
I felt like she was a bad apple at first. Something changed that.
I felt like I should be alpha rolling like my neighbor lady groomer told me I must do.
Something changed that.
I was going to feed her dog food like my parents always used.
Something changes that.

This forum did. Went for help online when she was only 8 wks. Have been reading ever since. Decided to join today. She's a h*ll of a dog and thank you all for how much you care and share.

Glad you made it through puppyhood. It just keeps on getting better and better with these dogs too, so it's likely all easy sailing once you've established that good foundation! Welcome aboard!

Thank you, she has definitely captured my heart! She was only about 6 or 7 months in that photo, but here's a more recent one...she's 28 months now!

Looks like they could be sisters.
