Our First Puppy



 I just got this puppy in hand 2 days ago. My aunt sent it from KK. Actually it is our wedding gift (again?).My aunt know that I need a dog, the fierce and trusted one to guard my backyard. I first thought it is Rottweiler when my aunt Whatsapp me this picture because she said it is police's dog. She didn't mentioned what kind of breed. So I thought it is Rottweiler. I am this stupid when comes to dog. I eventually know that it is German Shephard.

I googled about this dog and I am very happy to know few interesting facts about them.

Aloof
German shepherds love their owners, but aren’t so fond of strangers. Properly trained and socialized shepherds aren’t aggressive with strangers, but they make it known that they don’t want someone they’re not familiar with to cross into their territory.

Protective

In addition to being a bit standoffish with strangers, shepherds belt out a vicious-sounding bark when anyone knocks on your door. And they won’t hesitate to protect the ones who love them if danger would arise. They’re especially – and sometimes to a fault – protective of children.

Intelligent

In the book The Intelligence of Dogs, author Stanley Coren ranked the breed third for intelligence, behind Border Collies and Poodles. He found that they had the ability to learn simple tasks after only five repetitions and obeyed the first command given 95% of the time. Coupled with their strength, this trait makes the breed desirable as policeguard and search and rescue dogs, as they are able to quickly learn various tasks and interpret instructions better than other large breeds.

Curious

A German shepherd isn’t one to stay away from something because he’s not sure what it is. They love exploring their surroundings, often checking out a yard’s boundary when they go outside each day. Their curiosity is especially noticeable when they’re puppies, getting into everything they can get their paws and nose on.

Agile

German shepherds can nearly instantly break into top speed, come to a sudden stop and round a sharp corner without stumbling over themselves or their surroundings. It’s one of the many reasons they’re often used as a police and military dog. Puppies are considerably less graceful, because of their lengthy limbs they can’t quite handle.

Wolf-like appearance dog


They are definitely the right breed to guard my house. I just need to learn about how to train them. So far, I put them in a small kennel. Hubby said he will make a bigger kennel. I still don't have chance to spend time with them. I give them Lactogen milk and plain porridge. Now they are 2 months old. Today, I let them play around the house. They pooped 4 times. I have to cleaned it. I need to find way how to train them to poop at the right place. I am curious how intelligent they are as they claimed the third ranked of intelligence dog.
I am a happy new puppy owner!
