I just brought home an 11 month old male German Shepherd last night. A friend called and asked if we were still looking for one. I told her that I had just gotten one and she said that this one was going to go to the pound that day if no one would take him. I was told the owner is sick and can no longer care for him. So I did not want to let him be dumped off at the pound so I said I would take him. My sister in law may take him. I have 2.5 Acres but it is not fenced, so he is in a dog run that is 15'x8'. He wants out and he looks bored. What can I give him to do? I do let him out to run and my sis in law is going to see how he is with horses and start taking him on rides with her. But I just need something for him to do while he is in the cage. I dont want him to develop any bad habits.

I have a large Kong that is for my puppy. I can give that to him but it looks kinda small. Where do you get the treat balls? Petsmart/ petco? Thanks.

I would bring him in but I dont have a crate that is big enough for him. Right now I am not working either so the dog run outside is the best I could do to keep him from going to the pound. He really likes the Kong. Its the normal one not the puppy Kong.

They get along fine other than he is a little rough for her. And he growls and sometimes snaps at her when there is food around.

Well I think my sister in law may take him. She is great with animals. But she has to convince her dad to let her. Then if not I will have to find him a home. My GSD is only 11 weeks and working with the both of them and my 2 year old little girl is too much. I just dont want such a good dog to go to the pound. Its really sad. He is just like that toward the dogs as far as I know. I just picked him up last night.
