Re: what causes a dog to Attack its owner

Thanks Nettle

I knew I was right and I trust my RR a lot more than people and I think I have always felt safer around dogs than humans. I don't quiet understand how he passed as a vet when he said what. I was more shocked with it coming from a vet

Re: how do you know if you have found the right breed

Hi Nettle

thanks for the reply.

that makes a lot of sense. the only GSD rescue near us is does not have there own kennels so he would have to foster but I don't think that would be a good idea for him.

I would be very greatful if you could tell me what the GSD quirks would be?
