My fiancé and I rescued our German Shepard a little over a month ago. When we first rescued him he was 10 weeks and now he is just shy of 14. The humane society we rescued him from informed us that he was found under a shed at 4 weeks with his brothers and sisters and a red heeler who had mothered them. She too was abandoned. We have read that socializing German shepards is very important so we have taken him everywhere. We go to petco and walk around with him every weeks, he has gone to garage sales with us and we are always at the dog park. He does great with other dogs but is still so timid with people. He has gotten a little better over the weeks but I am starting to worry that he will never like people. We are very family oriented and I am worried he will never warm up to our family. Any suggestions? Also, the humane society informed us that archer is a mix. We have had people say he is pure bread and some who think he is part lab or part collie or part husky. Any German Shepard experts out there who can tell if he is pure bread or mix?? We could use all the help we can get with socializing!!! Thank you!!
