Hey, Dad wants a dog, he lost his to kidney failure about a year ago. I'm going the rescue route this time. We have always been GSD owners. Dad is 71 and cares for my bedridden mom all day and needs a buddy. A 5 year old well behaved (claimed to be anyway) female Rotty - good match or no? What are your experiences with the breed? What health issues other than the eyes and hips are worrisome? Dad is a somewhat strong pack leader but can be a little lovey and not always firm - anything to worry about with an adult rotty? Thanks for your input.
