What puppy to choose to love with 5 year old male German shepherd ?
Our GS is very soft and lives happily with 3 cats and 2 rabbits but now that I am working full time we feel he needs a friend. preferably a small one that the kids are able to walk!
It really depends on what you are looking for--a dog that does not bark much, a small watch dog, a dog does not shed much, is easy to train, etc. Almost any dog will get along with your GSD, but you do need to be concerned about your rabbits, and less so about your cats. (Puppies raised with cats almost always get along.)
Make sure it is a dog with low prey drive so as not to have problems with your rabbits.
If you want a tiny dog, I suggest the Maltese!
Good luck with your new dog.
