Drex loves me and my sis of course! He loves his "True- Blue" Dove & loves going for walks, car rides and jumping off the dock at the lake.
I dont think he has any...anymore.
Killian:) and playing tug o' war with him.
Everything expecially our specialty homemade dog cookies, he also loves carrots!
Walk...did u say Walk.!!... He loves running off leash through the woods.
"zwinger" that means go lay down on ur spot (he used to have a crate we called the zwinger) he can do kangaroo where he hops up on his back legs and "get the toy".
Lets see...Drexal has had many "owners" (if thats what you want to call them).
I first seen Drexal when I was working in the Dog Shelter in Cleveland, I already had adopted Raven and had snuck out a Doberman (who now lives a happy spoiled life at moms house) Drexal, who was known as Spike was in a small crate on the back of a pick up truck. The former "owners" had bought him for the elderly-blind grandpa, thinking that any German Shep. (with-out training) would be a service dog for the blind. Once they realized that he needed proper training for such a career, they crated him. Very large dog in a crate for a medium sized dog. Drexal was a little under a year old, and very friendly with everyone that came by. Since I already had the two dogs at my house I figured that he would get a good home through adoption. Drex was neuterd and put on the adoption floor, being such a big beautiful boy he quickly found a home. No longer then a week later he was returned for ripping up garbage and going to the bathroom all over the house. Drexal was again put on the adoption floor and again he found a new home and again with in a week or two was returned for the same things. That was when the shelter put him in the back and marked him for certain death. I have always loved GSD and I couldnt bear to see him die for such dumb reasons. I then offered to take him home and place him in a GSD rescue. I contacted the rescue lady who said that she would find him a forever loving home. The rescue group called me and said there was a couple looking for a GSD and would like to come over and see him, when they came over they immediately wanted him, of course he is a big beauty. They had him for a couple months, I was walking out of the shelter when I seen them walking him in. I thought "whats with his dog?" I took him back home and continued to place him in two other homes and he was all ways brought back...yes, Drex had a garbage can issue and a housebreaking problem-submissive urination. I kept him for a while until another family wanted him, and I gave him away again. Not until months later I got a call and was told to come get him..he was just not working out. I went to get him and thats when I made the decision that he needed to be with us, in my home. Poor dog confused with all the house hopping, he just needed a steady routine. I have offically owned Drex since 2004 and this is where he will spend the rest of his life.
His submissive urination is also a thing of the past, the secret to that was not to get upset when he started urinating or he would pee more, he was just confused & scared. He no longer is confused or scared and hes now a happy boy with routine and love in his life
Love you & miss you forever. You are a good dog ♥
