Hi gang! My name is Danielle. I've had 2 German Shepherds, my mom also had one while I was growing up, and I lived with another for while. Now I will be getting another Shepherd next week :)

His name is Troy, and he's almost two. He's gone through at least 3 owners now. He's a little spunky, but when he visited the other night I could see that he has just not been given the proper training. His owner was letting the dog be the alpha.

I plan on taking him to obedience class right away.

I know he has seperation anxiety, and wants to jump up on people when he first meets them. So, this is going to be a little bit of a challenge, since I'm used to starting training when they're puppies.

Nice to meet all you folks!

Thanks for all the replies!

I'm in Ferndale. Yeah, I would love to get involved in a club or something. I want to be a good owner for this poor guy. It's got to be hard being shuffled around from owner to owner. I think they must of liked him for how handsome he is, then not realized that he needs some attention.
