I was born and raised around German Shepherds or GSDs for short. German Shepherds are a largely misunderstood breed, which is why so many sadly end up in local shelters. GSDs need constant companionship and are not a fit for people who work endless hours away from home. They are also fiercely loyal and will defend those they love to the death if necessary. This makes them a prime target for insurance industry 'naughty' lists - which in turns makes getting homeowner's insurance a challenge. Expect to pay a premium for loving this breed!

GSDs learn new things quickly - often within minutes or hours. They don't forget either. It's important to offer GSDs plenty of safe space to play and exercise. Walks and durable toys are a must.

If you're considering bringing a GSD into your family, please adopt from a local shelter or German Shepherd Rescue.

Together, Lady and Luger are referred to as 'LayLu' - a quick and easy way to get their attention.

Lady was placed in Uncle Henry's (a Maine swap and sell it guide). The family that had her was moving and was unable to take her (no insurance company in North Carolina would cover them). So we went to take a look at her. It was love at first sight! She was just turning one when she became part of our family.

We adopted Luger when he was 8-weeks-old from a breeder up north. When we picked him up, he was in rough shape and had signs of abuse. To this day, he remains afraid of newspapers and quick movements. But otherwise he is a happy, well cared for guy!
