Yep, this is my first time here. I've checked out other forums and thought I'd check out this one here.
Just a little about myself. I've been a life long dog owner, up until 5 12 yrs ago when I had to put my beloved long haired GSD Chelsea to sleep after having her grace my life for almost 14 yrs.
I lived in an apartment where I wasn't allowed pets(even though I had snuck in a couple of cats..hehehe.). I moved to my current apartment just about 2 yrs and brought along my cats. We are suppose to only be allowed 2 pets. The managers here are awesome and allowed us to move in with the 2 cats and 2 snakes.
So, they were well aware of how many critters we had when they asked us to watch their rottie for the day while they were out of town. When I returned the key to them they told me I NEEDED a dog. Of course I totally agreed because this 5 1/2 yrs has been tough for me.
Fast forward to 3 weeks ago. My daughter saw an ad on craigs list for a long haired GSD that sounded like something I would be very interested in.
We called got the basic info I needed to make a decision(I had a laundry list of requirements and this dog met most of them).
We picked Jett up that night and so far he's turned out to be a wonderful dog. He's got a few flaws that I'm working on but nothing I don't feel I can't help him with.
Sorry for such a long intro, I just wanted to give everyone an idea about Myself, my family and my newest family member.
Thanks for reading and I hope to learn alot from reading the forum.
