Your last post cracked me up.
Personally, I think you can train your GSD to do pretty much anything. Whether or not it will EXCEL at it is a whole new ball game.
HUNT? Why not? All dogs want to hunt / chase, etc. It's what they do with it when they actually catch it!
Flush out? Again, something that could be taught ... retrieve? In one piece ... well someone on here (I think it was hunterisgreat) posted a pick of the dog holding a raw hamburger in his mouth ... so the dog can be taught to have a soft bite LOL at least for 10 seconds!
