German Shepherds are the BOMB, when it comes to dogs!
I just hope Tony has people in place to work & teach the dog.
When I was growing up, by complete, weird coincidence, we had 2 ex-police dogs, both GS and both named Baron! LOL We had them at different times / years. The first one was the terror of the neighborhood.. LOL When we took him for a walk, children got pulled inside, doors & shutters closed... the neighborhood was empty! The neighborhood came to love him, after he caught and massively bit a robber who was next door. Baron 1 went THRU the fence. Not over... not under... not around... but thru the fence! Baron 1 didn't really know or care about the neighbors... it was just his old training, kicking back in.
Baron 2 was pretty mellow, compared to Baron 1. Baron 2 didn't have the rep, the personality or the drive... he was happy to retire.
One time some boys chased my brother home ( mistake #1) and my brother ran in the backyard. The boys followed him ( mistake #2) and cornered him in the yard. Enter Baron 2, and yeah.... we got sued up the ying yang when Baron 2 was done with FOUR teenage boys.
and ha ha ha ha about the puppies chewing on everything, including flesh.... we used to call biting puppies "land sharks" hee hee hee
