    The german Shepherd is a pup that has its roots based in german and it was originally bred as a working dog for herding.  So it got the name German Shepherd.  They are wonderful dogs - so smart.

I have a 6 year old Shetland Sheepdog named Bosley. When I got him(from my dads friend), he didn't even know how to sit! But now, he knows how to sit, stay, lie down, roll over, play dead, wave shake and high five, and a whole bunch of other things! He is also a trained guard dog and he has saved my life four times already. I used to love German Shepherds and that used to be the only dog that I ever wanted. Well, now that I have a Sheltie, that's the only dog that I'm happy with and I would probably never want any other breed. The Sheltie is the best pet to own and I love Bosley sooo much! (:

My dog is a german shepard and pit bull terrier mix and he is very high energy , but is very smart and loyal. I think the mix is astounding and you need to get one.

    I've got a gsd cross. He is very energetic and clever and an excellent watchdog. He is very alert and prefers to rest at the front of the yard instead of the back so he can watch every move of passersby and whoever comes!

Dear Anonymous, My boyfriend has a red heeler about 4yrs old. He says after the age of 2yrs, your dog should start calming down. You should try an anxiety blanket on your dog.

    We are still looking, and this sheepdog looks good to think about.. can you get more details as to his character and behaviour in house, and with other dogs, also where he lives.>

I love this breed. My resued Blue Heeler/Mix, Jesse Girl, is the BEST. She is a loving and extremely faithful dog. She is so smart, hardly ever barks, and is great with small children. Her bad qualities (don't we all have them!) are burying our socks and gloves in the yard. It is amazing what we find after the snow melts. She loves to go camping, hiking and is an awesome fishing dog. She needs a walk EVERYDAY ...but I think all dogs need to be walked everyday. She is more mellow than some ACD's, but is beautiful and looks 100% like a blue girl should, expect for being a little tall (she is 47-50lbs). I think this breed is excellent! I just think you have to be the right person for the breed and realize they need exercise and like being given direction. If you want an intelligent, loving dog with a personality...not a typical dog personality.. this is it!

My red heeler's name is Zee. She is 10 and the best dog anyone could ever have. Today my Vet confirmed what I already knew.........she is going blind. My heart is breaking. I lost my father 3 months ago. My mother has altimzers. Six weeks ago she had to leave her home of 45 years to move into assisted living without my Dad to help her. Why does my Zee have to be going blind now? She has been my constant "rock" through all of this. I can't stand to see something happen to her, too. I'm sorry I sound like a cry baby, but I had to tell someone. Thank-You.

    Hi Teesa Lilly...I'm very sorry about your mother and the loss of your father ...and about Zee. My 10 year old dog Rebel a red-heeler is also going blind. He's still very happy though, and it seems that he really only has 1 eye he can see out of now. I'm just giving him lots of love... as always. I think it's harder on us than them since they already depend on us so much as it is. Hang in there you are not alone.

    I have a red heeler and his name is Zip. He is my buddy and rock! The last couple of weeks I have noticed he was bumping into things when it was dark. At first I thought he was being a goof, but then when he did it again I knew something was wrong. So I searched on the internet and have learned this breed does go blind. He will be 8 in October. He can still see during the day but not at night. Did Zee first have night blindness and if so what is her progress on becoming completely blind? Sorry for all your bad news.

    I had a Red Heeler many years ago he had diabetes and went blind, just wanted to let you know he did great, he could still smell and hear and was a great companion even though he was blind...plus I got him a lighted ball and for a long time he could see well enough to play with it. Good Luck to you and Zee!

    Hi my name is rebecca and I have a red heeler named cane, he just turned 6 and we just found out that he is going blind. He already is blind at night and in about 9 mths he will be totally blind. I have realixed that I am the one that will need to adjust and he will be fine. But it has just broken my heart he came into my life after my 4yr old son thomas died, and then when cane turned one I gave birth to my son quinten so they share the same birthday. Thanks for listening.
