  2. GSD mix puppy floppy ears

  6. Dog park incident with puppy

    General Puppy Stuff
    I just wanted to share this story to vent a little bit and also potentially warn other owners here about public dog parks. For starters, just don't go to them. Even if the people there have good intentions, they're often unable or unwilling to control their dogs if something happens. Today I...

    General Information
    I am adding a second dog (female puppy, 8 weeks) and anxious my male (3 year old, neutered) will not take to her as he is used to being the only dog.

    General Information
    The breeder said they are full breed and showed me the mom on site and showed me their father on his phone (only a head picture) . First time owning this breed but with all the research I've done I think their tail is kind of short to be full blood. I'm posting the mom and dad too maybe they are...
