Sounds to me like a great dog and a very well chosen home.
I truly hope that your partnership blooms and you keep us posted.
Thanks so much. She is a very nice dog and is fitting in very well.
What a difference from our last dog (and that is a very good thing!). Almost the same color - a bi-color and mostly black; but such a VERY different temperament!
Training is also different - he was much more independent, while Lola is much easier to get her focus on me (except when there is a cat around, which we still need to work on!).
A rescue is so different than getting a baby puppy like all of our other GSDs with the exception of one 11 mo we also got from a breeder way back. Different, but so rewarding when you can see the dog actually "bonding" with us.
