onyxena I was specifically seeking a lower drive/energy dog. My male GSD is plenty energetic at 7 years old! Having another with his energy isn't appealing at this point. When the time comes that he is no longer with us, I am definitely interested in a WL GSD. Just one at a time is enough for me! My girl Sasha is much more moderate energy/drive wise. She will do long hikes and remains alert at home but is fine with just chilling at home. I really like energy levels of most Shiloh's I have met! A couple have been a bit too laid back for my taste, while a few have been pretty much on par with your average GSD. They are bred to be more suitable as a pet for the average home.

I'm going to meet the puppies tomorrow, almost 3 weeks old now. I have been waiting so long!

vprasad Shiloh Shepherds are beautiful looking dogs. I love the color of their eyes! I wanted to get a Shiloh before I got my boy 9 months ago, but from what I've heard they are not as 'driven' as a GSD. So I went ahead and got myself a PB GSD and ended up with a dog that can be qualified as a Shiloh, size wise at least.

TL;DR, if you want a high drive dog get a GSD. Don't go for dogs that are above the standard in size, unless you're confident in controlling them.

I'm glad you feel so high and mighty about GSD's, but like I said before, no one here is claiming "my dog is better than your dog" except you. Kind of ironic that you ask us not to come on here bashing GSD's but you feel entitled to bash the breed we've chosen and simply because you could, not because anyone has given any reason for your little rant.

Some GSD afficiandoes & breeders are taking GSDs in a 'Malinois' direction which I personally dislike. Avoiding those breeders isn't difficult much like avoiding those breeding SL, Shilohs, Kings or Pugs. I'm always glad to see those with Shilohs & Kings posting here b/c it's interesting to see how these relatively new breeds are evolving.

People with Beauceron's, Dutch Shepherds & Malinois also post here yet NEVER encounter opposition or hostility b/c they dare to sully an oh so sacred GSD board. Those with Kings & Shilohs deserve the same courtesy.
Yep, that and my OS GSD is a GSD!

Not every GSD falls within the breed standard, sorry if my guy offends you! He's perfect in my eyes.

Breeding oversized proves they do not care about the problems they create. German Shepherd Dogs also have more than enough stamina. Some of the Shilohs I have met were sweethearts but they are different from GSDs. Their structures are different from GSDs and not in a good way. Any breed should stand on it's own. Don't come on here telling me.you made a better German Shepherd because you haven't even come close.

Mostly dark sables plus a few B&Ts, was hoping for a solid black, but like them all. They are close by so I plan to visit often and get to know them all before bringing our guy home. Ill share pics if anyone's interested! Yes, they are all health tested. This breeder has an excellent reputation and is willing to take dogs back. She is willing to answer questions and encourages visitors, plus I have gotten well acquainted with her at the SHiloh specialty shows.
These are parents, male is the black one. I have met both of them, female is very GSD-like, active alert, very focused. Male is pretty easy going but still fairly active. He is one of my two favorite of boys in my area.
They're beautiful! You will not go wrong with a Shiloh Shepherd.

I know exactly what you mean. I thought a Mal was a shepherd until people on this board set me straight. I've never seen one in real life.
