I have two of the sweetest and most affectionate dogs in the world, Yogi, a Red Nosed Pit Bull and German Shepard (8 ) and Gypsie (1.10) yr old female Red Pit Bull. As I am retired, I am with them almost 24/7. We all sleep in the same bed, eat, play, walk and hike together. Never a dull moment and oh so much love and fun! I love dogs and am an animal rights activist.
A Siberian Husky! I've had her since she was a puppy. She was hit by a car on two different occasions, but is still alive and full of energy today. That was actually the inspiration for calling myself the TNT husky.
We have a 10 year old beagle, Hobo, that we rescued from a shelter when he was about 6 years old. He doesn't like to lose sight of my wife (who cares for him). He barks when she is in the shower. (he has a bark like a fog horn). He is not the sharpest tool in the shed. He loves to go out "smelling" for rabbits. He could be smelling the brush and a rabbit would walk right behind him. He wouldn't even know it.
I have a female mini schnauzer/min pin cross that was rescued from a severely abusive situation along with 35 other dogs and cats. She was the one that shelter staff couldn't do anything with and thought she'd die, so she came home with me almost four years ago. Now she thinks my kids are her puppies .
My other dog is a male Catahoula, and he's much more MY dog. He was in the shelter 14 months, and was just too high-energy and kennel crazy for anyone to really look at him. Now he's my workout partner -- we go biking through the countryside almost every day, and you'll never meet a more sweet-tempered dog. He just needed a job and plenty of exercise .
How big of a dog crate do I need for a German shepherd?I intend to travel with my GSD someday, I am considering buying a large dog crate. Do you think this is a good idea and how big should be the dog crate that I need?
