Have you talked to Melinda about this pup? Its best to call/email her and discuss your lifestyle, (activity level) and what your plans would be for this pup. She would be the best one to tell you if this pup is right for you.

High drive dogs can be family dogs, they just require more in terms of exercise and stimuli.

Thank you for all of the responses and yes I have been working with her on our needs in a dog and she felt this would be a good fit. It has been with her since a puppy so she has a good grasp on it she felt.

i am sure you have done your research, but take it from a guy who didn't. i only looked for a healthy pup. the breeder told me all about high prey drive, ball drive, working lines ect. since i have had gsd since i was a kid, i thought with proper training all would be fine. the real problem with my lack of understanding was my "point of reference". i believed all gsds were pretty much the same and trained differently. to say i was wrong was an understatement. this really could have been a problem except for some help with the breeder and a fairly active family. it took a new mind set for me and hours and hours of training. it all worked out in the end, but it took some dedication and help from other people with high drive working gsd. according to the breeder, she wasn't high drive in comparison to other dogs in the litter. i laugh as others here talk about prong collars as power steering for their gsd. these were useless with kyra, she never felt it, but would do anything for her beloved yellow tennis ball. be very sure you are understanding what you are getting.
