I suppose I should add that we are getting a GSD as more of a family dog, we have a 2 year old currently. I am in the military, so a dog that will have my wifes back in the event that I ever deploy is a must.. I grew up with a Lab who got failed out of her service dog school for a high chance of hip dysplasia, she went on to beat cancer twice and was the last of her litter to die. Neighbors had two male GSDs, was never around them much but admired them from a-far. My wife had Pits growing up mostly.
If she had it her way, we would be getting a Husky or a White German Shepherd, I for one am indifferent as to what color it is as long as it is a good family dog.
