What should I expect out of a dog with this pedigree?
Long story short, my coworker has a friend who needs to rehome her GSD. I have spent a little time with the dog, and she seems very intelligent, biddable, and still has a good amount of energy for being 5 years old. She seemed to settle nicely in the house. Her current owner said that she started Schutzhund with her, but she decided to move onto doing agility with her Aussies so she stopped.
She showed me the pedigree, but I admit that I know nothing about pedigrees! I just want to make sure that I am not taking home 'too much' dog. I currently have a very high energy, lovable, excitable male GSD. I'm looking for a nice fit for him for a companion. The current owner is willing to do a 'trial run' with me to see if she fits nicely into my home.
I'm just trying to see if I can get some more information on what I can expect. I've always had rescues. I've never had a 'working' line dog. I'm trying to get a grasp if she will be able to acclimate to an active home or if she needs something more than that (she currently spends her time in a kennel outdoors and in the garage, sadly.)
