    She is like a female version of Rufus - entirely nuts

    She is attention starved which is why she was looking for a new home - young mum, two kids under 4. There was another gsd there too - he was gorgeous - just wanted to play ball - but she wants to keep him for now. Told her to call me if she ever didnt want him lol.

    She is harassing Cookie atm but a friend of mine is going to take Cookie to foster as I feel I am getting more attached to her than I should be after having her for 5 months.

    Einstein is fine cause he just sits there and looks at her. She sniffs him and licks him and has nibbled him but he just doesn't care. He has tried to groom her - she was freaked out.

    grace hates her - and attacks her if she comes near - cant blame her

    Rufus is just everywhere she is - mostly cause she is with me begging for attention. She jumps on me when Im sitting down and so does he so I am squished under two dogs.

    She is dog friendly and just seems like a nice dog - but time will tell.

    Aww she sounds nice....another good dog looking for love.

    At least the family realised they didn't have time.

    Was she raised with cats? I gather the other animals you're talking about are cats?

    I'm darn curious about another breed, believe it or not ...


    Why does most of the GSD's back slant down so much in pics, is it just a show stack etc or part of the breeds body shape etc that causes the GSD's back to slant so much???

    I think there are working lines and show lines. The show lines slant down the back, bred to look that way now...the working lines have more "substance"....am I right GSD people?

    i thought its because there are almost two types the american bred ones are squarer and the english/german bred ones are slantier???????? i am probably so wrong its not funny but its what ive read

    gyps only has a slight slant (if any) and her back legs dont do the funny show dog wiggle/ bunny rabbit thing (i like it like that i think she looks normal and has no hip issues ) <----sorry if anyone offends

    It's the stack more than anything. Unfortunately, gsds are so overbred and badly bred that many are very roachy. The girl I have isn't too bad but looking at her and Doof - he is far straighter - though he isnt a registered pure bred.

    Much of the showie look of lacking substance is that they keep their dogs VERY lean
