Re: GS running partner
Hi there! A German Shepherd is a fabulous running partner. They were bred for long distance moving, and are usually running at a smooth trot when a person is jogging, a perfect match! You aren't asking for a really special dog, just a healthy one, and I'd recommend a dog on the smaller size, especially if you are running mostly on concrete. Have you considered taking an adult dog? A pup would need to grow up a bit before being any sort of protection, and also to be able to run as far as you would like now. Where are you located? If you are in Michigan, or nearby, I may have a good prospect for you in a retiring brood female I have. We of course would be happy to get you a good match in an upcoming puppy, as well!
