The German Shepard

2 year-old German Shepard

How did you join your family?

My family picked me up from my mom and dad. I was happy to see them because I was hiding under a chair from my rambunctious brothers.

What are some of your favorite things to do?

I love to play fetch with all kinds of objects, socks, balls, toys and sticks. I also love to chew on sticks, much to my mom's dismay.

Do they have other pet friends in the neighborhood?

I've met a few other dogs in the neighborhood but I mostly keep to myself. You may see me taking my family on walks in the mornings and evenings. I keep them on a schedule. If I don't say hi, it's not because I am mean it's just that I am shy! I don't like to meet other humans or pets unless my mom and dad say it is okay.

What makes you special?

I was the missing piece to our family they didn't know they needed. I like to give kisses and cuddle on the couch.

Does you enjoy any special treats?

My favorite treat is puppy ice cream but for some reason my parents don't give it to me often. I also enjoy blueberries and watermelon!

Do you have any special talents?

I don’t really think it’s a special talent but I am pretty good at chasing squirrels from our backyard. They like to taunt me from the windows while I’m stuck inside. They are my arch nemesis.

Any funny stories?

I gave my dad a good head butt while playing one evening and he had to go get 3 stitches in his forehead. My mom was not amused at all. It wasn't funny at the time but we laugh about it now.

Anything else you'd like to share?

If you see us out walking don't be afraid to say hi. I may look intimidating but I am actually very sweet and friendly.
