  2. Finding the Right Puppy
    Hello everyone. Just joined the community and I'm looking forward to learning from all of you. I was raised with German shepherds and spend a large portion of my adolescents training and working these dogs with wonderful results. But one thing that plagued my dogs were pretty severe health...

    Hello all, Posting here because I am at my wits end on how else to go about this. I have 2 shepherds, brother and sister, both just turned 3 years old recently. Sorry for the long post but trying to be detailed. A month or so ago, our male German shepherd started having really bad night time...
  4. Basic Care
    Hi all! I was just wondering if any of you had good recommendations for some paw "balm" or other assistance with German Shepherd's paws. My pup is over a year old now and we live in Tennessee (for those of you who don't understand the significance of that, it means the weather changes 20 times...

    Hey guys, i'm looking for advice on spaying our female GSD/Collie mix. I have had contradicting good advice from lots of people (including vets), which lead me to read myself silly online (which didn't get me far), so I was wondering if you guys could help with some up to date first hand...

  9. Health Issues
    Hi everyone! So I have a (75-80lb) 7 year old German Shepherd that seems to have an ear infection. I have already set an appointment for him to be seen but the date is not as close as I would like it to be for him to be seen (01/19). I'm still trying to call other veterinarians for a closer...
  10. General Information
    My 9 year old shepherd has a fistula on her rear end. I've tried the cone of shame (she freaks out with that); I tried the inflatable doughnut, but she still can reach; I tried the diaper, but everytime she has it on she pees in it. I was wondering if anyone has any other ideas or has tried...

    Hi all, My family has been looking into getting a GSD puppy for a little over half a year now. The litter we are looking at currently has a single male, but he was just diagnosed with a grade 3 murmur when they were all taken to a normal vet to get checked on for a allergic reaction at 7.5...
  12. Puppy Behavior
    Hi all! I’m new here :) My fiancé and I just rescued a GSD puppy around 4-5 months of age on Halloween. He’s been adjusting beautifully and is one smart cookie. We adore him. Over the last 2 days we have both noticed an occasional limp. All signs seem to point to pano but I was wondering if any...

    Talla was just spayed Monday. We have had a cone on her since she got home. Its called a "Zencone" and is like fabric and plastic. Everything was fine her incision looked fine this morning. But just a little while ago I noticed that she was able to bend the cone to lick her incision. I put an...

    Hachi is a (supposedly) 3.5 year old fixed male GSD. He's peed while sleeping five times since Friday. It's 100% while he's sleeping. Before this, he had never peed inside the house before. He seems completely unaware that it's happening. This morning we did a pee sample and it came back...

    Hi everyone, this is my first time posting so bare with me! My GSDs lower lip is turning red from always being black. He has food and environmental allergies...not sure if it’s allergy related. I also researched lip fold Pyoderma, but this looks different from the pictures. Has anyone seen this...
  17. Health Issues
    Hello, I have had my GSD for about 3 years now and sorry if I'm not very good at describing his health situation, I don't think I've ever encountered this issue with other dogs before and I have visited many vets around my area and all of them have said something along the lines of atopic...
  18. General Information
    Hello everyone, I plan to get my first GSD pup in this Oct. and I'm looking for a good breeder to make an early reservation. My expectation for the pup is to become a good family companion, neither for working or showing. I did as much research as possible and I contacted two breeders: 1. vom...

    Hey all! I'm new to this website. I'm posting my concern here since I'm not sure if its behavior or there's some underlying issue no one can seem to find with my dog.

  20. Health Issues
    I’ve taken her to the vet before they said it could be a number of different things. I bought her in Seattle WA and moved down to GA and it started here. I thought maybe a food allergy so I’ve tried a number of different foods, nothing changes. Flea treatments do nothing, at this point I think...
