    Taking the evening walk between the rain drops, I ran into two other like minded walkers.

    Here's porkchop. Rescue that we got for free at a drive. He's had a rough life thus far but he's a good boy and I'm gonna make sure he has it good from now on.[​IMG]

    What a great looking dog! I’m sure he’s in the best of hands.

    Porkchop looks like he should win Best In Show.

    He's a good dog and he's pretty well trained. He definitely has some quirks though and he has definitely been abused. Judging from where I got him and how he reacts I have determined he was abused by a Hispanic male. He is aggressive and fearful towards men and he cowers if you yell in Spanish.

    He has warmed up to me and my fiancée and I'm working to get him to understand that he is not in danger anymore and I'm not gonna let anyone hurt him.

    Yeah they are just a smart breed. Give them Love, direction and affirmation, and a tad of discipline, and they will jump in front of a bullet for you. Blitz is my first GSD, Ive always trained working hunting breeds so it was a learning experience for me.

    He's a little "go" for me, a tad to "energy" but thats no surprise he's from DDR working lines. His blood walked fence on the other side of the iron curtain. So he's very suspicious until he gets to know you, the exception being natural dog people who know better then to lock eyes and are casual around dogs. He Loves the UPS guy and the neighbor girl but is generally suspicious of strangers. He's great around K9 guys, some dogs he likes, some he doesn't, he's never bitten.

    But he's an animal. I dont let him approach, actually trained him not to unless I give the command, and I dont let others approach him unless I can tell them how and watch them. If I'm there there wont be a problem but its a process. A working GSD is not a Paris Hilton purse dog.

    WTG porkchop.

    Papa I am very sorry to hear of your loss, I cannot imagine growing up without my dad. You have a lot to be proud of with his accomplishments.

    I got a text message from my son in law last night. Miah killed a rabbit. This is the second one since they bought a house in May.

    He opened the door to let both of them in, Miah had a leg sticking out of her mouth.

    All that they found was the head and a leg, everything else was consumed.

    The question for you all. I have two small dogs and the mother in law had one too. Miah had always had that watchful eye and zones in on them. I am always mindful of this.

    Obviously I have to watch her when she is around, do I trust her now that she has hunted and consumed? It's a bit of a game changer.

    Rabbits run and get chased. They get caught by my dogs sometimes too. Not that big of a deal

    True, but the rabbit thinks it’s a big deal, for a few seconds...:animlol:

    Yes you can trust her. My pit lab mix Bailey has killed squirrels, rabbits, and snakes. She’s just as snuggly as she ever was.

    My boy Brooks last weekend. We were working at an AKC Hunt Test (Brooks was not entered this day) and we took a trip around the grounds. He kept hearing duck calls and gunshots, which caused him to look towards the sound.

    Wait till it filters out through the other end. She’s a dog, and they do dog things.
