My apologies, but I was typing too fast. The title should read vom Gildaf rather than von Gildaf.

I didnt know she had decided to sell him. I'd snatch that puppy up in a heartbeat! Or any pup from Melinda for that matter.

Nice looking pup. I would get a dog from Melinda. I have only heard good things about her and her dogs.

I'm confused. You were looking at low drive american bred puppies and now you are looking at high drive workingline pups. Do you know what you really want? It makes a huge difference because if you don't get the right type of dog for your family and lifestyle, neither you nor the pup will be happy.

We are okay with a medium/lower high drive dog which is what she said this particular dog is. Our current GSD is very high drive and we have been with her for 9 years now. With the proper exercise and attention she has been great. Do you feel that high drive dogs should only be working dogs rather than family dogs?

Melinda will match you up with the right puppy for you. If you really are interested in this puppy, get in contact with her and explain to her what you're looking for. She'll be able to tell you if this pup is right for what you're looking for.

I may get a puppy out of the same sire next year. Different dam though.

You understand the difference between drive and energy, right? They're two different things.

MN GSD Fan: I think you should do step on the brakes a little and do more research into what you really want in a GSD. Elaine is right - you are scrambling at all different lines and there doesn't seem to be a clear focus on what you want.

The extreme high drive dogs would make a regular family crazy with their energy level. The lower high drive dog would be fine with proper exercise and training. The emphasis here is they still need more exercise and training than your average pet dog.

You say you have a very high drive dog. Is she a workingline dog? I hear people say they have a high drive dog, but when I go to actually see what they have, I have to laugh at how low drive it really is. Nothing wrong with a low drive dog if that's what works for them, but most average people that haven't met workingline dogs have no idea what high drive means.

My concern is you keep waffling between what you are looking for. I would highly suggest you get out and meet some dogs of the various types before deciding what is best for you.
