  1. Introductions & Welcome Mat
    Hello all, I look forward to learning and interacting with you all!
  2. Puppy Behavior
    I just adopted a 3.5 month old GSD who was living with a loving family who didn’t realize the responsibility associated with a dog when they rescued him. Leo was 5 weeks old when he was separated from his parents, and lived with the previous family for 2 months. He’s an AMAZING pup - but he...

    I saw this dog a shelter, and I was wonder if she has gsd in her.
  4. General Information
    My 6 mo old workingline gsd is constantly trying to chase and bark at my cat somewhat aggressively. It has gotten to the point that our cat practically lives in our bedroom (which is so unfair for her). When my dog is in his crate, he constantly barks at my cat when she is just roaming around...
  5. Health Issues
    Hey guys, have one of you ever seen something like this on your gsd before? My dog is named Flick, he's 2 and 3/4 years old, he's started having this on his nose. It started really small. Like needle tip small. But it grew big to that... 🤔 If yes, please tell me in the comments, it'll be...
  6. General Information
    Hey! I just wanted to know if this guy over here is a swiss shepherd or a GSD. And i also wanted to know if these are gsd... They're not pure, right? Cause they don't have erected ears and their backs are straight. It could maybe be an old gsd? Idk, I'd like to know pls
  7. Breeding - General
    East / West German / Czech Breeders... I did a lot of research before settling for a GSD. At first, I wanted Belgium Malinois, but I did a lot of research and understood that this dog isn't for me and I wouldn't be fair with it. Am I a good fit for the dog? For those who might say are you sure...
  8. Equipment (how to use/where to find)
    Hello! I have Sable German Shepherd named Kasier who is 1. He loves to chew anything I give him. Unfortunately this means his bed aswell, anyone able to point me in the right direction for a bed that might be able to last longer than a couple of days. I will be training him not to chew the bed...

  11. Health Issues
    I don't know what's the exact reason behind her black and thin poop,it was just like water. She's 52 days older and yesterday night she wasn't eating her regular puppy food, actually since 4-5 days she wasn't taking interest in that food.

  15. General Information
    I'm looking for recommendations for a new car that's big enough for a GSD, but will also be easy for my girl to get in and out of. She isn't old, per se - she just turned 6 - but she tore both of her ACLs in the last year and had TPLO surgeries on both (plus a third surgery in October to remove...
  16. General Puppy Stuff
    Our 5 month old German shepherd won’t stop barking at and chasing our smallest cat. We have two cats, one is very big and bossy, but very calm. Our little one is teeny and jitterish. Annie (our GSD) will not stop tormenting her! She isn’t TOO bothered about the older cat (will bark a little and...

  19. The Breed Standard
    I got Kaleis from a shelter(3months)and he was listed down a GSD and I kinda believe he is full gsd but I’m not 100% because of his ears and his general size he is 7months according to the birthdate they had listed (2/28/20) and sitting at about 50pounds; he’s on the leaner side but I just want...
