What a big cutie! I'd bet you don't have to worry about any other critters sneaking up on you in the dark.

That is a very alert looking pooch!

When stargazing, my dogs get bored and go inside to warm their favorite chairs. Lucky there are not many coons around the immediate neighborhood. Would have to lock-in the coonhounds all night to avoid waking the entire neighborhood. They have very specialized interests. Will run right thru a parked covey of quail, ignoring them completely in search of squirrels and chipmunks.

Is your dog 'stand-offish' to strangers, and at best neutral to friends? Just wondering, because the German Shepherds I've met were loyal and affectionate to the family but didn't have much use for strangers. Dunno if it is a general characteristic of the breed. A good quality in a dog if it can be controlled.

My dogs make a lot of noise over visitors. It is impossible for anything to sneak up. But they would joyfully welcome-in Charles Manson or Freddy Krueger. At least we are safe from coons, cats, squirrels and rhodents (grin).
