German shepherds are fun, loyal dogs that are great pets for families with children. Because they were bred to work and perform high-performance tasks, they need constant exercise to be happy and healthy.
Prepare for your new pet to ensure they experience a smooth transition to your home. Give them plenty of time and attention to build a bond and create a foundation to ensure your dog has a long, healthy life.
Be patient. Older dogs usually easily accept a new dog. Some, however, make joining their pack difficult for the newbie! Let the dogs work it out for themselves as much as possible. Step in only if the situation looks like it could become violent.
