Default German Shepherd and Siberian Cats

My GSD puppy is currently 15 weeks old. Sometime in September, I will be bringing home two Siberian Cat kittens who are 12-14 weeks old. By then, my GSD puppy will be approximately 26 weeks old (6.5 months).

I'm getting Siberian cats because they are considered hypo-allergenic and they are considered the most "dog-like" of cat breeds, supposedly getting along great with friendly dogs.

Is 6.5 months TOO OLD for a GSD to "grow up" with kittens and grow to love them as a fellow pack member?

My GSD does not have a very strong prey drive that I can see but does chase and scare the **** out of 10 week old Golden Retriever puppies with her style of play. On the other hand, she has great fun with active puppies her age as well as with a 5 month old Golden Retriever. She does stare intently at pigeons and always tries to chase them when I walk by them on leash.

On the other hand, she is fairly submissive and I have trained her to be calm and relaxed indoors. When I am in the room, she almost always assume the down position next to me and falls asleep or quietly chews on a toy.

She is crate-trained. She is trained in Sit, Down, Stay, Come, No Biting, Quiet, and the other basics, and getting better at them on a steady basis.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

if she is trained well as you say she will do nothing to them , but better not keep them 3 alone in 1place , stay with them or separate them
