[QUOTE=LucaGSD2015;6823985]1 year old GSD

Taken from an abusive family which apparently was caught holding him down and beating him with sticks. Lord knows what other abuse and mistreatment he endured before that.

Some people are idiots, what else can you say?

So glad Luca is safe with you now, he is a beautiful boy! The last picture made me smile as my 85 pound horse is always lying on me in one position or another. Usually, he lies sideways with his head and torso on me, but this morning, he decided to flop completely down with his head near my head and his legs stretching in the direction of my feet. Then, he decided nothing would do but to give my neck a bath. Sheesh!

He's growing quick! He weighed in at 89 lbs at his first check up and now yesterday he weighed in at 97 lbs! That was even after a couple days of some nasty diarrhea from giardia.

He's definitely not being overfed and he's getting plenty of exercise with daily sprints and running where we play off leash in a nature area with acres and acres of open meadows and trails.

Speaking of, his training is going very well. He's a very quick learner and extremely eager to please.

One of his most notable training accomplishments so far is staying where told. I most often practice with him being told to sit and stay at one end of the house as I casually walk away (keep in mind he's glued to me otherwise, goes everywhere I go, always) even as I go upstairs and then I will call him and he comes with quite the fury, sounds like a horse racing through the house haha. So all in all he will stay where he is told for roughly 30 seconds even with me out of view.

He's also learning house rules very well. He won't go in through the back sliding door even if it's left wide open. He'll just sit there and wait for the go ahead or stick only his head in and stare until someone calls him in haha.

Oh yeah did I happen to mention he's incredible?
