"Oh how adorable. I am planning to buy German Shepherd Puppies too and I am wondering if they are dangerous or could get jealous too because we have a 9 month old baby, you know just to be safe. I love german sheperds and I know they are very smart. I hope to visit the animal shelter and adopt one. big grin

Sorry to sorta necro-post, but based on what I just read here, NO you should NOT get a GSD.

German Shepherd > Is she underweight?

Very rarely will a dog starve itself (excluding medical conditions.) Personally I like my dogs skinny! My current dog burns calories standing still so weight is never an issue. If she starts looking like skele-dog, obviously feed her more, but IMO I wouldn't stress about it.

Feeding in the crate is an excellent suggestion.

My German shepherd dog has done this a few times as well. He has never met a pointer in his life.

I have seen coyotes in the wild "point" while stalking things.

I'm no biologist, but I'm thinking this might be a predatory behavior inherent in canids.

Food & Nutrition > Question about Natural Balance

I feed Nat Bal venison and SP. I have a dog w/ a very sensitive stomach and severe allergies. I have tried several other brands with this dog, and it always ends in disaster. Nat Bal is the only thing he can handle.


If your dog does not have allergies and such but you still want to feed LID, I would not feed Nat Bal. I'd pick something better, like Cat Nat or Wellness Simple Solution (but IMO Wellness is too pricey).

Earthborn is a good food, too, IMO. And they have grain free and "regular" options. Not every dog needs to go grain free and sometimes GF is just too rich OR too much potato etc meant to replace the "grains" ie oats and barley and such. Grain free is a buzz word these days and everybody is trying to get on board w/ GF formulas that aren't much better than the regular formulas. At any rate, I know Earthborn's fish formula gets good reviews.

Good luck!
