Most people take home a German shepherd puppy because they have small children, or because they have no children-and a Shepherd easily becomes part of the family.
Because puppies wake in the night just like infants, you may find your own child cranky from waking with the puppy. Before taking your puppy home, though, consider adopting an adult dog. Puppy mills are usually overcrowded and contain too many different kinds of dogs. Remember, German shepherds stay puppies till they are 6 to 7 years old!
