Is GSD right for my family?
My husband and I are hoping to buy a puppy after our vacation in the early spring and German Shepherd has been on our short list. We have two daughters that will be 2 and 4 by the time we are ready to make a purchase. Our desire is to have a pup that will grow in to a playful family pet that will also be protective of the family (mostly a deterrent) since my husband has to be on call monthly and works odd hours for that week. We don't have any neighbors, we're surrounded by open fields, so the added peace of mind would make my husband and I both more comfortable. My husband and I absolutely love the appearance of the GSDs. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
