18 Hilarious Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Get a German Shepherd

By Christopher Paul, 12 June 2018


There’s been an age old question we can be asked by others or by ourselves, dog person or cat person? This is usually around the time we decide to get a pet. Should we go for a puppy or kitten? Which one will be more friendly or fun to play with or easier to take care of? All these questions plague our minds when we start thinking about pets.

Dogs are known to make wonderful pets, they are playful, they are adorable and later on they get very protective of their owner and family. We’ve heard countless stories of how dogs saved people, children and also the elderly. The reason they’re used in the police force is because of their loyalty and love towards their owner. They have very keen senses too and are able to smell and hear better than humans.
