I don't think a high drive and energy dog would fit my lifestyle, but I am use to the energy level of Boxers, so I'm kinda torn between a show and working line. My most important concern is health, and this dog will be my first as far as diet. I will be feeding a raw diet. How do energy levels compare to Boxers?
From what I've seen Boxers have higher energy, but even with a higher energy GSD I think you'd be able to focus it's energy better. You sound like the perfect owner for a GSD since you enjoy having your dog with you as much as you can. GSDs are so loyal, they will love to be you too!
