Nickyb - what is your experience with Dutchie's? Have you owned them? Just been around them? How many have you been around/owned?

I read a few of the replies and can honestly say I am surprised that no one addressed the OP's situation, or rather, the fact that we know nothing of it.

All we know is that she has a GSD who is under a year old, and that recently there was an incident of the GSD "freaking out" when a child ran up to her and jumped her.

No one has said that before you go adding another dog of any kind, let alone a very, very high drive one, it is best to concentrate on training the one you have for a couple of years.

It is irrelevant in answer to the original question if the Dutch Shepherd is "crazy" or not.

Well I mentioned that in another thread, because in this thread they don't mention that much at all, and it was unclear from this thread they were having issues w/the 9mo. old (that the dog "freaked out" over the toddler)

I have never owned one. My trainer has one and he is an AWESOME DOG. I've spent a bit of time with the local clubs and trainers and there are many "DS's" around. Alot of the clubs have PB Mali's (neighbor has 2 intact males) GSD's and DS's. I've probably seen about 10-15 within the past 2 years so I am basing my thoughts off of that.
I feel like this is an attack waiting to happen so I want to be clear that my trainer, Steve's, DS is awesome, well behaved, calm, and trustworthy. The majority of other's I have seen have just been basket cases and need good trainers behind them, or shall I say in front of them. I am NOT saying they were all like this, there were a few that I wanted to take home.

I kind of did, but ok. LOL I do agree, we went off on a tangent

ETA: where did she say her GSD freaked out? I don't see it, at least not in this thread, so you have to be fair. If it was mentioned in another thread, maybe not everyone read that. Also the OP did ask "but i guess im mainly just wondering if there a huge difference between the GSD's ive had and this "DS" that i may possibly end up rescuing"

I'm not attacking you nor have I ever so not sure why you would have that impression. I'm simply asking what your experience is that you are basing such strong opinions on.

In fact, many people on this thread seem to have really strong opinions and I think only one person that responded actually owns a Dutch Shepherd which she got from out of the country.

And with the few Dutch Shepherds in the US, I would really wonder whether this dog in question is even a DS or a mix that has a brindled breed in it somewhere, thus my suggestion to meet the dog in question.

Yep, you did.
I went back and looked and saw your very gracious and indirect response.

Here is what you asked to see: I do try and look at the OP's other posts before I do reply to a question. My response varies depending on what the situation is.

I'm irritated at this point, Zoeys freaking out and the mother of the girl just turns and says and i quote "AWWW, HOW CUTE" so zoey puts the little girl to the ground, not aggressively or anything just to stop this little from climbing on her back. and this women FLIPS OUT!!! so were yelling at each other in the middle of the street the little girls crying which pisses the mom off even more. and i just cant help but think what if that little girl ran up to a dog that was actually aggressive and the dog bit her. i mean COME ON people teach your kids not to just run up to any dog strange or not.

Never said you did, just seemed like I was being set up and I was wrong for thinking that way lol Guess I just went into defensive mode, I know before I made a comment on here and a few people went all crazy on me..... Sorry for making it seem like you were about to, didn't want to have any impression or arguments, just my thoughts.

I think the strong opinions are based on the fact that the majority of "DS's" you will find on petfinder are bred poorly.

I think the main thing we need to focus on is why the OP wants a DS. My main concern is they want one because it looks "cool". DS are bred to work, simple as that. I just dont want to OP to adopt/rescue/buy a puppy DS for it to end up in a shelter or rescue.

It's all good. I rarely "set" anyone up...not that I haven't but I rarely do. Most of the time I'm just asking a question because I don't know the answer.

The only thing she said is because "you can't have just one. "

And i guess I'm just wondering if theres any truth to this, I've looked online and haven't found any truth to it but i figured one or two of you could shed a little light on the fact.
