    You really need to do some good research into the breed before you buy one. Shepherds are generally quite good although.

    The guy lives in a flat so he can't keep it anymore.
    Don't get me wrong, I love dogs and I cannot undersell the strength of the bond you can form with a dog but the relationship is far more intense for the dog.

    How would you feel if the most important stimulae/relationship in your life was only yours for however long it was convenient for you to spend with it? but in the meantime you had NOTHING else to distract you or think about?

    my dog's totally attatched to my older brother (who bought him home) and very affectionate and protective of the whole family almost straight away. we got him when he was about 4 I think so being older won't mean you don't get the bond.

    just make sure you take everyone who the dog will be living with to meet the dog in his own home first. get to know him for a while before you take him away from his current owner and back to your house.

    I know I'm not agreeing with him for re-selling, personally I do think it's unfair - like getting a new father/mother.

    But if I don't re-home him someone else will.

    Here's a picture of him
    He looks like a thinker (most GSDs are) and long hours without stimulus will drive him crazy.

    Is he in an adoption scheme that guarentees not to put healthy dogs down? He looks like the type of dog that'll have no trouble finding a home.

    Explain why I'm not suitable. Purley because I have no experience? Obviously I would get help from neighbours who own one...

    -_- Who are you to say I'm not suitable to own one without even knowing much about me.

    Don't get an alsation for your first ever dog :|. And it might not cost you anything to get him but then you have to pay for food / veterinary treatment etc..I wouldn't do it personally. I'd never trust the breed, at all.

    Any reasons for not trusting the breed or just don't like the look of them? All dogs will have costs such as food and veterinary treatments, I'm aware of that.

    Do you really want to go into this?

    You're 16 years old with no experience of owning a dog. You want to go take on a dog that you've heard a sob story about but know nothing about its personality. It's a GSD that are a very inteligent dog but can go one way or the other dependant on their early experience. You are still living at home and are worried about waht you mother will think and it sounds like she's the head of the household and it should be down to her to decide if it's appropraite to bring a dog into the household. you're still going through your A lvels and are deciding about which uni to got to, so who going to run it when you do go or are you going to take it with you? I'm going to stop there because I could go on forever
