Introduction:   My mammal is a German Shepherd Dog or also known as the Alsatian in Britain and Ireland.  They  usually live for 9 - 13 years.  They’re large and powerful dogs and they are also among the most popular breeds in the world.  GSD often used as a police and military dog.  A mix of beige and black is the most common colour type for German shepherds, but solid black and solid white shepherds also exist.
What is this animal? How long does it usually live for?
German shepherd dog
9-13 years
Large and powerful
Mixed colour
Solid black or solid white


Diet:  GSD eats raw meat and bones, canned or dry dog food as well.  For the puppies under 8 months it’s important to feed them with crushed animal bones, pieces of chopped liver and raw eggs.  You can either feed your dog once or twice a day and if you leave the food in the bowl it’s only once. Food can bought from a Pet shop or any Supermarket.
What does it eat? Where do you get the food from? How often should it be fed?
  • Raw meat
  • Raw bones
  • Canned or dry dog food
  • Crushed animal bones, pieces of chopped liver, and raw eggs for 8 months and under (puppies)
  • Local supermarket
  • Pet shop
  • Twice a day or once if food is left in their bowl
  • 2 bowls (1 for feed and 1 for water)
  • Food and water bowls
  • Food
  • Dog brush
  • Dog shampoo
  • Collar and lead
  • Toys – e.g. a chew toy, a ball
  • Flea and worm treatment
  • Sunscreen if your dog has a white or pink nose
  • A bed, kennel or crate
  • Registration tag
  • Poop bags
  • Play pen or baby gate (for puppies)


Habitat:  GSD is found living only in places where people have made as their homes.  They can live together with us or even outdoor so long they are nice,  warm and well protected.  Some people may even have their GSD sleep in the house.
Where should it live - in a cage, tank, indoors/outdoors? Does it need to be kept warm/ cold? How often does its cage need cleaning?
Outdoor and must be warm
Kennel
Sleep in it’s house


Exercise/ Entertainment:  GSD will need at least 2 walks a day.  So think about the leash because you’ll need 1 short and a long one for training, learning the command and come.  The main thing is proper care.  Toys in pet stores are all different types such as balls, rings,  cords for pulling, frisbee and toys that can be filled with a treat, bones and more.
Does it need to be taken on walks/ toys to play with?
We need to take it for lots of walk’s (twice a day)
Leash (1 short and 1 long)
It needs toys
Need lots of training


Health:  First aid kit is necessary for your dog. They need lots of room to play around and get trained like your backyard. We need to keep them all clean, healthy, well-fed and cheerful and you can finally and play with them! They need to bathe once or twice a week.  You must teach potty training so they never pee or poop inside the house.  
Do they need lots of rooming? Do they need potty training or bathing?
Yes they need lots of room
They need to get trained
Must teach potty training
Bath at least once or twice a week
First aid kit

Socialising:  Most GSD are fine with other family pets and they do get along so well with human.
Does your pet like to live alone or with other animals? Does it get along with humans well? Does it get along with other animals?
My pet live’s with my other dog
Not all animals get along

Conclusion: If you want a GSD then you have to think about it first and think about the cost of a GSD.
what are some main things to think about if you want to buy this pet. You might want to add in about vet bills here as well.
Always ask to the person you are with

$325.00 or $1,500 or $1,200 $1,580

Japanese food

Today I tried lots of different food from Asia. I loved the seaweed chips because it was tasteful and crunchy. They looked like plain chips, but they added little seaweed pieces. They smelled like the chips that we have in New Zealand and they tasted a bit like this too. It kind of tasted like American chips, it was very salty a little sweet and crispy.
