Hoping German Shepherd Lovers will be able to give us advice. Two weeks ago our neighbour was found dead in his house, he had been there for about 5 days with his two beautiful shepherd dogs Prinnie (11 yrs) and Tazer (2 yrs). Like all good Shepherd's they stayed by his side. The dogs were taken to the Lost Dogs Home and were assessed and given a good report but needed new homes. My 16 yr old niece has been apart of these dogs lives for many years and didn't want them put down. We have a smallish backyard so unable to take on 2 dogs, we just don't have the space. Prinnie is now with one of our neighbour's friends and we have Tazer who listens to my niece at all times. He is so well trained, intelligent and beautiful. But we know he is missing his pal Prinnie while learning to adjust to a new yard. We want to know Are We Doing The Right Thing for Tazer? Tazer was a dog that lived inside and outside the house, but we have a cat which has now become an inside cat and thus Tazer an outside dog. He does seem ok, he doesn't try to come into the house and we have plenty of outside shelter. Tazer has daily walks and is very well behaved when out. He does howl and cry at times mainly at night but he listens to us but we know he is sad which breaks our hearts. At the moment my niece is on school holidays and I work fulltime, we are worried what Tazer will be like once she goes back to school :-( Our main concern right now is his eating. He only eats if we hand feed him and he is not eating much at all. We love Tazer and want him to be part of our family. We are giving him lots of cuddles but can we be doing more?
