Just adopted 15 month mix
Hello everyone! I'm new here and new to German Shepherd ownership. My husband and I just adopted a 15 month old German Shepherd mix (not sure what he's mixed with). He was in his first home for a year before they surrendered him for unknown reasons. He was in his second for a couple of months before the gave him back to the rescue because he was "too protective". He is clearly very sweet, but bonded with his previous family and is heartbroken to not be with his family anymore. We know we've got a long road ahead of us before his true personality comes back to him and we've got time and patience to give. I'm just wondering if anyone knows of any tips to help us ease his transition. Or just any helpful tips for a first time German Shepherd owner. We did research the breed beforehand, but you can never have too much information. Thanks for any help.
