To be honest. I would not bring a puppy into this situation. Does not seem fair to either dog.
I'm with gsdsar with this and a little disappointed with anyone suggesting getting a puppy at this time. Even if your current dog DID get along with a puppy, that puppy will grow and what may happen then?

So BEFORE even thinking of adding any other dog to the family you need to KNOW how your current dog will behave. Behave around crazy biting puppies. Behave around adult male GSD's. Adult female GSD's . AROUND OTHER DOGS!!!

I always have a 5 yr split in my dogs BECAUSE OF THINGS LIKE THIS. For me, I use that 5 years to KNOW, really know the dog I have. While at the same time I spend the TIME and $$$$ to continue to work with that dog to make it the best it can be!!! Some of the time our dogs can be bully's just cause they don't know better and HAVE learned to ignore their humans.

So going to classes, being around HUNDREDS of dogs. Meeting my friends dogs. Meeting puppies, adults dogs, females, males.......

By the time I add any other dog (and I dog sit for friends dogs too) to my house I want to KNOW how my dogs will behave. Then I can just focus on the new pup.

So I"m not saying never add another dog/pup. Just not now. Too many unknowns. But if you start going to dog classes. Taking your dog out. Being out and about so can accurately predict how your dog will behave AND get the leadership role so you'll have time to react BEFORE it goes bad cause you now know what to look for ....

doggiedad i wouldn't chance it with a male or female pup. wait untill
you have your own place to get a pup.

angryrainbow I wouldn't choose a GSD as a breed to house with the pit bull, mostly because a lot of GSDs aren't forgiving to other dogs and some do not recover well.. GSDs also grow large, fast, and play rough.. which would probably upset the pit bull. Even if you kept them separate, the pit bull would probably become anxious, frustrated and over aroused.. it doesn't sound like their owners do much with it anyways. what if they forgot your pup was out when they let their dog out ? or they didn't shut the door all the way..

personally, I wouldn't chance it. One bad experience with the pitbull (or any dog) can have pretty bad effects on your pup.

JakodaCD OA maybe you can find a trainer/behaviorist to come in and get an evaluation/advice/suggestions from them in regards to whether the pit is workable if a puppy was brought in..

I wouldn't put a female in the mix tho, I'd go for a male..

jholmesiv she flip flops. at times shes willing to do training at other times she doesn't want to (my room mate is a female and her boyfriend) while I work 6 days a week (7 if you count the days im working in the emergency room) Im willing to take the dog to classes if need be. I feel it would help me anyways.

It's up to the Pits owner to work her in regards to the aggression. He needs to get her into classes, start desensitizing her around other dogs, maybe even have her spayed( this may or may not help) but will take away some if the excess hormones.

Is your future roommate on board with the intensive training it will take?

I tend to agree with not wanting to take a chance on bringing in a puppy with an aggressive female especially..
no I had the pure GSD when I was a small shild and the GSD/Collie passed in 2004

mebully21 Move out and get the dog you want. You know the breed has genetics for dog aggression- so dont get a pup while living there
