What is a good food for our new German shepherd pup. We feed our boxers a Kent line of dog food that has good oils and 30% protein. They r really active and olde and short hair. It's been a long time since a pup and we've never had a long hair and one that will be his size. My dh had Gsd's as a child and it was a farm dog so unfortunately not a lot of thought put into the care of the dogs. We r different we get them as part of the family so I want the best. I've always had short hair ,boxers, so I want to make sure of growth, hair, health, and all the other important factors in his health.
