 German Shepards....

I took DH to the shelter today for his early anniversary gift. he wanted a dog. he was looking for a hunting buddy but Scout just called out to him. Scout is a 5 month old german sheperd male. hes hyper and clumsy like most babies are. he's already had his first bath and getting him dry is not easy its taking forever. so i was wondering if anyone has a shepard and what they are like and so forth.

German Shepherds can be wonderful additions to the family.  They can be very wimpy dogs believe it or not. They need to be socialized as much as possible. they are very intelligent dogs and sometimes need a job.  Here is some info about shepherds

They are kind dogs, but as they age their hips deteriorate. I have never seen a German Shepard that hasn't had to be put to sleep before they were ready due to their hips failing. It starts with a limp and soon they cannot even walk any longer. It's sad :(
