training your new puppy
Alternatively, if you are looking for a German Shepherd dog

then a young adult German
could be more preferable - you could
get started straight away without the hassle of training your dog.

the previous owner's problems or circumstances, that had
nothing to do with the actual dog itself.

dog because he will not know or
understand why he had lost his home - so he will be unsettled - and
will need much love and attention to regain his confidence.

Where To Get Your Dog

will have been done, and your puppy

You will also be able to see the parents in
most cases and this will give you a good idea of what your puppy will
turn out like in the future when he has grown up, and will
give you an indication of the dogs temperament.
In the unlikely event of there possibly being some kind of unforeseen
problem with your dog - the dog breeder will be only too pleased to
give you any help and advice that may be necessary, they have a
reputation to consider, and the welfare of the dog is as much
their concern as it is yours - nobody wants an unresolved problem with
or dog - remember,
all animal lovers!
When you can see the advantages of buying your dog from a recognized
breeder, why would you contemplate buying from anywhere else?
from a pet store or a private house)
The alternative is to offer a home to a rescue
dog, for a reasonable
donation you can have the dog of your choice from a wide variety of
dogs and breeds, young or older, and they usually have been
examined by a vet, and are in reasonably good health.
When you visit your local
dog rescue center, you will be amazed at some of the dogs
you will see, and some are top pedigree dogs that have come from
really good homes, but have ended up as victims of circumstances
through no fault of their own.
If a dog has a particular problem ....
i.e. has been mistreated by children - then the Rescue Center
will tell you that they will only let the adopted dog go to a quiet
home without children - there
will not be any nasty surprises - whatever
a particular problem - they will always advise you.
The animal shelter staff want to find the best home that they can for
rescued dogs, and they evaluate each dog that comes into the shelter
for physical wellbeing, bahavior patterns, and try to determine what
needs the dog has and whether a suitable match with you can be made.
