    Good to hear about Sheru, Aashish. 12 years and going strong is very nice. I wish him many more healthy years.

    Our GSD gave us so many moments about which all of us still think and talk of at times. Moments of sheer intelligence , fun , wisdom. I shall narrate one :

    We had a party at home and upon completion, the cook just put all the remaining fried chicken in a box and left it outside. All of us went inside to have coffee and this left the field open to stray dogs to try and get their piece of the chicken from the box. Lancer ( that was his name ) sat stoutly around the box and did not let any stray dog near it. And he did not even TOUCH any piece from the box himself. When I came out randomly, I saw him guarding the box and I was just overcome by emotion. I took out a few pieces, gave it to him and only then did he eat it.

    He suffered during the later years with Hip Dysplasia and it caused him lot of discomfort and pain. It led to a lot of deterioration in overall health and he passed away aged 11 and I buried him myself.

    It's good to have atleast one "dog" ( Don't like calling them a dog) at home. Unlike most humans, they always greet you with a big wide smile :) (Controversial statement, but I believe in it)

    Cheers.

    Agreed Gurjinder, My dad some what strict kind of person at our house , whenever
    he comes back home everyone at our house tries to show discipline at home and
    almost every keeps his mouth shut unless he goes to his room... That time he narrates one statement in Joke : " Only SHERU feels happy when I come home , "
    Because SHERU waves his tail and shows his happiness by bouncing on him when he sees my dad coming home... truley loveable...

    • A dog will never betray you.
    • A dog will never lie to you.
    • A dog will always look up on you.
    • A dog will never hold it against you.
    • A dog will never judge you.
    • A dog will always be happy to see you, even if you just left the house.
    • A dog will never be jealous. If you are happy it will make it happy too. If you are sad or in pain it will try to help you as much as possible.
    • A dog will always be loyal to you and never abandon you. But only if you treat it right and don't restrain it.
    • A dog can be an equal family member and will give you lots of good memories.
    • A dog can heal you. Your dog's positive thinking and aura will heal you mentally. Even on the worst days, giving or taking a hug from your dog will make you feel better.
    • A dog is the best medicine for loneliness, especially for elder people.
    • A dog can help you socialize and find friends. There are many people who love dogs and do not own one, so it is much more likely you will meet someone and start conversation while walking your dog.
    • A dog will make you laugh and have fun. Some of them are particularly funny and joyful and will provide you with unlimited hours of play and entertainment.
    • A dog will understand you. It will not understand your words but it will understand your voice and feelings. Try it by speaking a different language.
    • A dog will put your life above its life.
    • A dog will always love you, unconditionally.

    Now spend a moment on this and think, how many friends you have would do even half of the above? Really unfair that the term "Dog" is used as an insult sometimes.

    Friends,

    I am looking for GSD male as family inclusion. Found few 6 to 8 months old and 45 days old puppy.
    Should I go for puppy or 6 to 8 months old dog?
    This is the first time we will have dog as part of our family. No experience in this.
    How is Golden retriever compared to GSDs?
    BTW, I am looking for guard dog which is good for family and for safety concerns as my house surrounding area is deserted.
    Appreciate your inputs.
  6. You already answered your question...go for a gsd..preferably a 45 days old dog..the satisfaction you will get to see it grow before you cannot be described..they are very friendly dogs but are very alert and of protective nature..
    If you are looking for an aggressive dog just for the purpose of guard dog then go for rottweiler it is an amazing breed, but very ferocious and destructive if not trained properly..

    Thanks Arnab. I hear this Smooth Coat and Bush coat for GSDs. WIll this be any different?
    Also, probably I going to buy from a breeder. Hence, I would like to know what should I look for in terms of health of dog/any clues of wounds/how active are these.
    What papers should I check.

    Go for 45 days GSD , you will enjoy time with him , and I personally feel GSD have that Royal feel in them , when you move along with them , they
    increase your status also... 6 to 8 months old One means already he is in his teenage stage , and it will get little difficult for you to groom him in your family..

    If i may give you sincere advice - This being your first ever dog, go for a indian breed dog, even a street stray. They are rough and tough, very much adapted to India. A GSD demands much specialised care which a first time owner can feel overwhelmed with.

    Once you get familiar with dogs and their ways of life and adjust your life according to that go for a gsd then.

    Adoption of a stray indian dog can work well, too.

    Just a suggestion..

  10. Bush coat is a trait of pure breed..check for the hind legs..you can check in the internet for pure breeds.
    And papers as in get the papers for your puppy if you can.see the lineage of the puppy a good breed will sure have champions in their lineage..though this wouldnt mattet in the long run unless you plan to breed.
    And always the most active one...best of luck.cant wait to see another pet in the fiat family...
