jocoyn I would strongly recommend you get out to plenty of dog events for GSDs-I am certain you have a lot to chose from up there and look at the various types of dogs and get to know about temperament etc. Black Sable is very popular and that will be in the working lines - a lot of those are Czech/East German dogs.

They are quite popular right now and that can cause problems with a lot of mis-bred dogs so it is important to line up with a really good breeder who knows their lines and your requirements. A fit can be had but it may take a little bit of time to get just the right pup.

I would assume that mostly military people are well versed in the what ifs of military life and have contingency plans for all different scenarios (not just those that involve their pets). In addition, there are different military foster charities around to help out. Besides, anything can happen to anybody that would force them to find a new home for their pets (ie sickness).

More and more "dark sables" are turning up in shelters, the color is becoming very popular, and people are getting them for the "looks" and then dumping them when they are "too much." The one below just popped up on my newsfeed this morning. You have a lot of threads gong right now, I would put all your questions in one thread, you'll get more/better advice when people get the whole picture in one area. Good luck!

kristinloveschief Doable! My husband and I have a 5 month old GSD named Chief . My husband and I both work full time jobs. I work 8am-5pm and my husband 7am-3pm. I come home during lunch to feed and take Chief to use the bathroom and when my husband gets off work he will play fetch with Chief and I walk him or take him to the dog park in the evenings. He seemed like at first it wasn't enough exercise but I think that was just normal puppy behavior because he's now finally calming down and chilling out!
