Living with a german shepherd

I think I mentioned in a previous post that I am a proud mum of the cutest german shepherd that exists! We are so lucky to live with this amazing dog. We were looking to adopt a dog two years ago when I friend told us that this dog was three months old, all his siblings were adopted but this one was left alone.  


So the timing was perfect! He was perfect! We brought him home and we couldn't be happier. He is a member of our family and we love him so much. So today I would love to share a few things about what is like to live with a german shepherd.

(always by my side, even when I take outfit pictures haha)

-My dog's name is Tyrion (you guessed that right, we watch Game of Thrones haha) and he is two years old
-German shepherds are extremely intelligent. I am always amazed by the things he is doing and how he reacts in situations
-He is the most loyal animal and showing him that you love him will make him happier than he already is
-He needs cuddling all the time
-Learns fast and training isn't difficult at all
-We had some accidents at the beginning but later he learned and started behaving correctly
-He shows unconditional love and loyalty
-He is always excited to see us returning home from work
-He is always in the mood for playing. 20 hours out of 24, he is holding his toy or ball with his teeth, begging to play with him
-Needs to exercise every day and go for walks at least twice a day
-He is very energetic
-He thinks he is the king of the neighbourhood! He likes to watch other dogs walking by but he thinks he is superior haha
-He needs a large amount of toys to play with. And balls. He needs balls!
-He needs toys to chew. And he will chew everything and anything that gets in his way
-He recognises us both as 'his parents' but when we are both in the room, he chooses his dad. German shepherds choose one person to be dedicated to him
-I used to sleep in the couch for a month when he had his surgery 8 months ago, so I could take care of him during the night (he is my baby after all and the love of my life..sorry Mike..)

Tyrion has also an Instagram account if you want to follow!

Thanks for visiting today and I will see you soon!
