Yep, you all might be saying this guy is crazy, after everything I have been through with Rocky II, I'm going to be departing him next month and leaving the little fella with my parents who will spoil him far more than I would have. I'm moving to Miami and I'm planning on buying a dog. I won't have much property there, I'll be living in an apartment to start so I want a dog that won't be too upset about being home. German Shepherds are fantastic, I taught Rocko, how to bark, give paw, sit, and lay on command in 1 day but I am looking into another variety. I love big dogs, and I know where I can get my hands on a pure-bred Kavkaskaya Ovcharka (Caucasus Shepherd). I was considering one, but they grow so big, I'm not sure if being at home will be a great idea. I was going to consider a Doberman Pinscher but my brother has one and like I said I want something different. I wan't a great natural guard like a German Shepherd for the home. At almost 4 months my GSD already defends my house like it was his. So far I have narrowed down the choices for: Caucasus Shepherd Chow-Chow Japanese Akita Staffordshire Terrier Siberian Husky Pitbull What do you all recommend or think?
