When are we too old for getting a GSD puppy? I hate the idea of waking up one day and realizing that there are limits for certain breeds to own.
Yeah, that's the one. Getting purebreds from breeders that will take them back , no matter what, is the best way to go I think. I am a trainer but you need a certain strength for raising pups. Retired breeding dogs seem like a good idea. Old age is a long way from now (MHO but it was a shock one day when I realized that I could not have the dogs I would like to own one day. Anyways, WD keeps me young for now and I still plan a pup when he is 2 or 3 years old.that you will be to weak/frail too handle a certain type of dog??
if it is the first question and assuming you die of old age and not prematurely good forward planning,
Good point although none of have any guarantee that we'll be here tomorrow.in my post, i was thinking more along the lines of leaving my dog behind.
Yeah, your dogs and your choice. However... it makes me very sad to think of someone doing that. What is your reasoning?serious question for sure - as unpopular/selfish/whatever as it will sound my dogs will be euthed on my passing.
judge al moan all you want, my dogs, my choice.
