Avalanche - German Shepherd/Rottwieler Mix
by Gina Catron
Avalanche just came to me a couple of months ago from my neice who found him at a friends house and he had been dropped off by someone else. Avalanche looked to be the runt and underfed.
As a single woman I decided to take him in. We have decided that he must be a German Shepherd/Rottwieler mix. Hes loving and cuddley enjoys walks and other people but can be scared easily while out walking and loud trucks go by or groups of people.
We believe he was only about 5 weeks old when I got him and hes about 3 months old now. Im excited to see how big he is going to get and enjoy taking him out to the beach and walking him every day.
He needs some obedience training as he is very sassy at times and tends to snarl and snap at your face at times but other then that Avalanche is a loving puppy and a wonderful addition to my family. Total German Shepherd
Bless your heart for taking that little baby in - especially when he so desperately needed all the help he could get. And as a single woman, a big dog is a definite necessity.
I wish you had added a picture of your little Avalanche. But what an exciting name you have picked - I hope he doesn't live up to it (heehee)!
Definitely socialize him all that you can, keep him up on all his shots, and sign you both up for a training class as soon as you can - it will be so important for you both! But little boys, especially un-neutered little boys, can push your buttons and this is where the training comes in.
I wish you nothing but the best with him and hope you both have a long as happy life together! Continued success! And thanks again for helping a dog in need!
