Just wanted to mention a couple of things.

Can you deal with a lot of hair and a dog that sheds heavily, because that is a GSD.

Can you deal with a dog that will want to always be with you, follow you around and act like velcro, because that is a GSD.

Can you handle a dog that will be in the range of 60-90 pounds, because that is a GSD.

Can you handle a dog that has medium energy, sometimes high energy and will require a good deal amount of exercise and mental stimulation a day, because that is a GSD.

GSDs are wonderful dogs when they are with owners that take the time to train them, bond with them, give them proper mental and physical exercise and love them. This breed is smart, easy to train, loving, loyal and versatile.
