We have begun the search for a new sister for London. He has been SO depressed after losing Olina. (We ALL have.) I know that some people will say to wait awhile before adopting a new German Shepherd after losing one, but that has never worked for me. The best cure for my grief has been to get another GSD ASAP! IMO there are TOO many great dogs on death row that can't wait around for me to get thru with my grieving.
So my question is this.....
London LOVED Olina. They played till the cows came home. He is a big 2 y/o boy, 90#. Olina was a STRONG female at 76# and sturdy. She could rear up and play-wrestle with London. Most of the females I have been "previewing" seem small (50#). I am hesitant to adopt a petite female for fear of London bowling her over. He is not very gentlemanly-like. Not mean, but he is a sable and we all know how they play - ROUGH!
Should I hold out for a big, feisty female GSD like Olina?????
Here is a photo of the 2 of them romping:
