ADOPTED ON 10-19-19 Our rescue is quite proud to present for adoption a wonderful German shepherd male by the name of Gunnar. This young man (18 months) is going to be a large GSD, probably exceeding 100 pounds. Presently Gunnar is 70 pounds and still quite thin from neglect and being malnourished but he is doing very well and coming on fast. What never ceases to amaze me is the ability of these dogs to forgive and move on, our boy is about as loving and kind as you possibly image.

Gunnar has all of the classic traits of German shepherds, loyal, loving, intelligent, social, and of course a strong but in control protective instinct. This young man handled all of our socialization and training programs extremely well, revealing a strong desire to train, great social skills and a superior intellect. Having said all of this, our gunny is, a classic young shepherd that is playful, funny, goofy and totally perfect!

PLEASE TAKE A MINUTE TO CHECK OUT THE SECTION BELOW

RDVG wants to provide you with as much information as we can because some of our mix breeds you might not be familiar with. The below section on “About the Breed” offers information on some of the Breed Characteristics, Children & Pets, Behavior and Personality, Temperament and more.

It is important to point out that in addition to the breed, there is an enormous variety in the way a dog acts and reacts to the world around him. In the end, your dog’s preferences and personality are as individual as you are–and if you can accept that– then you’re bound to enjoy each other.

Children & Pets

Animal Behavior Guidelines

Many children, especially very young ones, do not realize that pets are living animals and not toys. Failing to teach a child how to handle pets properly can result in suffering on the part of the pet and, in some cases, injury to the child. Taking introductions slowly will allow you to introduce family dogs and your children safely

Puppy Behavior, Growth & Development

Each stage of Puppy Growth and development is fascinating; by the time it reaches its first birthday a puppy is considered a mature, adult dog. Puppy Growth rate is fast compared to humans, just compare a puppy of 8 weeks to a baby of the same age.

One of the most common questions asked about a puppy’s growth and development rate refers to the eventual size of the puppy. How big will the puppy grow? How can you determine the adult size of a puppy? A young puppy is tiny and cute – everyone loves puppies! But will the puppy be suited to your environment? How much exercise will be required for a full grown dog? Will the puppy be a suitable pet for children? The breed of the puppy will determine the answers to these questions. A general response to the size and growth rate of a puppy and the adult size of a puppy is therefore not possible – it needs to be specific to the puppy’s breed.
