If thinking for a Doberman, keep ready the ear plugs....
Thanks for suggestion, that's some news. Never knew you can get a short coat GSD too.If buying a GSD,get a short coat breed.
I have one of long coat,and its really difficult for them to bear the heat.
Well then lets say which one would do it the least
I wonder if this condition can be fulfilled!
I've seen enough dogs living comfortably on Veg dietsAlso, please give due consideration to what diet you are going to serve the poor thing!
Dogs ideally must have non-veg diet.
Thanks for suggestion.Voted for Doberman. I agree that Labs are a bit too friendly, even with strangers. GSDs are very prone to diseases and infection and aren't suitable for hot and humid climate, no matter how much people love them.
Boxers can be a good option too. Stay away from St. Bernard and Great Dane.
Well that's some news.. to me Doberman appears to be a very ferocious dogHave heard Doberman to be a very friendly pet, infact have been asked specifically not to have this as a pet.
Only GSD can fulfill your requirements.
a few suggestions from my side...
if adapting a GSD little pup, feed 5-6 times a day in little quantity.
make him habitual to accept different type of foods including daal & subjis from start(6mth)
allow the kids to play with them right from the beginning.
at their young age GSDs should actually kept on two times feeds a day to keep them alert, more time feeds means more lazy watch dog.
if you want your dog to only bark at visitors keep him un-tied & do the reverse if you want you dog to bite visitors tie him in the corner of the yard.
& please dont use Buy a dog, but use Adopt a dog, the most faithful companion of man on the earth.
GSD any day over other breeds. I own one GSD
Advantages of GSD :
Very very loyal.
Can sense trouble i.e. if person approaching is good or bad.
Go for single coat only.
When young feed them frequently
Do not give frequent bath with shampoo or soap as theytend to develop dry skin.
Clean ears once a month else they tend to get very dirty.
Very sober and protective for the kids around.
Best breed if you have kids.
Where can I find them? Is there some NGO or something that keeps dogs for adoption?& please dont use Buy a dog, but use Adopt a dog, the most faithful companion of man on the earth.
i mean the words...Where can I find them? Is there some NGO or something that keeps dogs for adoption?
You are right sir jee!Hehe, Prasham, Nitu meant that the word 'buy' does not seem polite, you should use the word 'adopt'!
I'll not kill you, I'll neutralize you, hehe! Or 'compromise', even better!
You are right sir jee!
word "Buy" is better for fruits or factory fabricated items.
have you considered a bull mastiff? they are good around children
