Thanks- have/had several GSD's, but she is the first long haired. She has quite the personality and gets along well with my other dog.

Kudos to you for adopting! Nice looking girl! Our GSD was an owner surrender too. And she’s been a sweet girl, really happy with her.

How is Ollie doing? Has he recovered use of his legs?

^^^ Yes sir and thank you for asking.

He is about 90% and this may be his new "normal" or it could still take up to a year before the nerve recovers and he gets back to 100%.

Whenever we go on walks he will usually "fall" at least once. By this I mean his front paw might not flip forward enough for it to land on his paw pads and thus he lands on his "wrist". Thus causing him to fall down and "face plant".

Either way he is no longer a quadriplegic and for that we thank the Heavens above!

I recently posted photos of my new rescue "Piper". Well we had an interesting development. When we got her, her name was "Yeager" but we decided to change it and were doing it by calling her both names together to get her used to the new name. We've done it before with another dog and after a month or so we dropped the old name and only used the new one and no issues. Well with Yeager we noticed she wouldn't even respond to her old name. As a matter of fact she wasn't responding to verbal commands well at all.My wife was getting fed up believing she was just being stubborn. The guy who fostered her for a few weeks for the rescue said he thought she was just "aloof", but as he had like 10 dogs at the time he didn't spend any time working with her. Well it turns out she is not stubborn or aloof, she is deaf. Obviously we are still keeping her and realize this is probably the reason she was surrendered to the rescue in the first place. We are teaching her sign language and she is actually picking up on it pretty quickly. And we are going to stick with the name "Yeager" for her as when she is looking at us and we mouth it, she does respond.
Here are a couple more pics including one with our other dog, Scout, a GSD/Great Dane mix.

Thank you- there is no way we would give her up. We made a commitment when we took her and still plan on giving her a great life and spoiling her with lots of love. And glad to hear Ollie is doing better-

We rescued a 2 yo totally (born) deaf 1/2 greyhound. When she came to us, we thought we could do just about anything, command-wise, with just "good dog" and "bad dog" signals. But what surprised us was that after a while we did not even have to use those. She became so tuned in to our body language and facial expressions that we could just "talk" to her. And we did just that, talk out loud, because by expressing our selves verbally we were also giving off those facial and body expressions. She learned to always look to us wherever we were to see what was going on.
