Today, I would like to discuss German Shepherd Dog bonding. Throughout the year, we have a small percentage of our German Shepherd Dogs returned. These are shepherds that we have sold as puppies and returned are in every case due to a family tragedy including illness, divorce, job loss, etc. We are pleased to take these older puppies and young adults back and re-home them.
These returned German Shepherd Dogs are highly bonded to their original family members and after a couple of weeks it is obvious that they miss their former lives and family. However, our German Shepherd Dogs will bond with their new owners within in a couple of weeks after they are taken to their new home.
Within a month if provided with love and attention, our Heidelberg German Shepherd Dogs will bond completely with the new family. Even a ten-year-old dog would bond with its new owner if the new owner provides the needed time and love. Many times, if the owner shows more affection and spends more time with the re-homed German Shepherd Dog than the former owners, the new bond is even closer than the former. I believe that Heidelberg German Shepherd Dogs are smart enough to actually appreciate and reflect upon their current and former lives.
If you do not want to get a new puppy and would prefer a completely trained and socialized teenager or adult then consider adopting one of our returned German shepherd Dogs. They are guaranteed to fill your heart with joy.
Ask me a Question and I will provide my opinion.
