I just adopted a 5 month old female german shepherd this past week. She is my first rescue and I love her sooo much. I have 3 other dogs and she seems to be ok with them, but she does like to play rough. I've been reading some stories about how german sheps shouldn't ever be alone with a small dog. If I train my german shepherd, Xena, she should learn how to live with the small dogs right? She likes to play and isn't aggressive to be mean, just wants to play. I am going to start training with a specialists tomorrow with a man who specializes in german shepherds. Do I have anything to worry about? I have a golden, a poodle and a pug. They are great together and can be left alone without hurting each other. Will I ever be able to do that with my shepherd? My family and I are ready to train her and to teach her how to be very obedient to us. She was just spayed a few days ago, but when she's ready, we are going to take her out and socialize with A LOT of people and A LOT of dogs so that she won't be aggressive as she grows older. Thanks in advance to any replies!!
