This is tough, I've never adopted one I haven't met. There has to be that "bond", especially in an adult, and I would hate to put him through a cross country trip if it's not a good match for him.

I just lost my white GSD and she was extremely friendly and playful as well, so the temperament sounds the same. My girl liked to try to eat wasps!

Good luck! He certainly seems like an ideal addition for someone. If I get to LA any time soon, I'll contact you.

I am letting the people I know (who love GSDs) (and showing off those great pics). I will give them your e-mail if they are interested.

guys i need advice and suggestion please help
i put rocky on the rescue website.. got few calls for him for adoption.. im very very sad about giving him away and im really confused if its better for him to go somewhere else or stay with me ... this is Rocky's daily routine

30 min walk in the morning at 8am
i go to work.. he stays in my room and outside in the patio for the rest of the day till 5pm.. during this time my mom and brother gives him food/water and interacts with him for few mintutes... he also goes on a short walk at around 2 pm ...

I come back home at 5 pm and he is always sitting with me in my room chilling etc...

at night I run with him for 30 mins ... and then everyone goes to sleep

is this enough for him ? are we doing not too much for him ?

will he be sad after leaving us.. he is VERY attached to me .. i love my dog a lot.. what should i do :( ???

will he be ok with the new owners after a while ?

Well your dog seems to be getting enough. Mine get about 30-45 min of my time in the morning. That may be ball playing or tug. I leave the house between 6:15-6:30 AM then get home about 4:00 PM providing no errands need to be done. Then I am home the rest of the evening. But...some evenings I need to be gone but hubby is home. My dogs are crated all day and they do not get a walk in the afternoon.

Why again were you looking to give him up?

I am sure others will post but you know that people live in cities and have dogs. You are walking him 30 min and running him 30 min. Are you doing any obedience?

Have you considered a sport such as agility or rally or flyball for extra activity?
