Rescue Dog Joys

 Reviewed 30 October 2017

Rescue Dog JoysGreat that you got a rescue dog! We can help you experience that a rescue German Shepherd overall is much easier to handle than a German Shepherd puppy.

Indeed. How strange then that so many (even first-time) GSD owners decide on a puppy, isn't it? And more than a few argue "it's because we have small children". Then I am wondering "it's because you haven't done your research". rolleyes

On MYGERMANSHEPHERD.ORG alone you can do so much GSD research that you can't remember your own name - so much we have. And most even is FREE: see the MYGERMANSHEPHERD PERIODICAL subscribe page for more information.

Now, the predominant joys for and with a rescue dog typically are:

  • Gratitude
  • Affection
  • Together-time

Which rescue dog joys are you interested in?
