DDR is an area. It can't in and if itself tell you anything about how and individual dog will be. Sorry. If you had the actual pedigree, that could tell you something.

The most generic things to be said about DDR lineage dogs, they tend to be heavier boned, bond very closely to their owner, be a bit more defensive and alert to threats. Aside from that...

I have a DDR/Czech boy right now. My personal dog is a lot more on guard than previous dogs, he has nice bone, nice willingness to work for me with the joy being working for me, not a toy. He has a moderate prey drive, not very toy motivated. But that's MY dog. His littermate has a much higher toy drive. So it not something that can be generalized on based on the region of the Earth his ancestors came from.
