German Shepherd Personality Test

I’m working on a canine questionnaire to try to judge typical German Shepherd reasoning processes. It’s short so far…just three questions. But if you could give it to your doggie and let them answer it, I would appreciate it. It will give me a sort of baseline to work with.

Your human brings home a new pair of shoes and carelessly leaves without shutting, locking, bolting and nailing shut the closet door. Do you proceed to:
A: Chew on the new shoes
B: Chew on their favorite pair of old shoes
C: Ignore both the new and old shoes and seek out the most expensive pair of shoes to chew on.
D: Chew on all of them

Now that you’ve started chewing on the shoes do you:
A: Chew each shoe into a million little bits
B: Chew on each shoes just enough to ruin it
C : Chew on one shoe out of each pair of shoes.
D: It Depends. A true artist doesn’t just paint the same old picture over and over again.

The closet is firmly closed and locked, but Mommy has just bought you new chew toys. Do you
A: Chew on the new toys and try to destroy them immediately so Mum has to buy new ones
B: Find the 12 pack of toilet paper Mum just bought because she’s been suffering from massive diahrrea and shred it into uselessness.
C: Pee on the new toys and dig around in the bathroom until you find her tampon, which you will chew up and leave on the living room floor.
D: Depends on whether or not company is coming over.

Mommy has left a steak defrosting on the counter, given you the ‘leave it’ command and stupidly walked away. What do you do?
A: Waste not Want not. Eat it.
B: The Dr told Mum to cut back on meat and you’re trying to protect her health. Eat it.
C: If you don’t take it all now, you may have to share some of it later. Eat it.
D: Take the steak and leave a sock in its place as payment; then eat it.

Could use help coming up with additional questions.

I tried to get Hondo to answer the questions. However, before he answers any questions he wants to know what's in it for him. Sometimes he can be selfish that way.

Wolfie says that he doesn't chew shoes, and he definitely leaves that steak there. He's a good boy.

Question # 1 - D - Lakota loves shoes, she doesn't care old, new, cheap, expensive, she can't resist shoes.
Question # 2 - D - I still wear my "Lakota Design" chewing heels are good but sometimes you have to do the toes.
Question # 3 - E - none of the above, out of sight out of mind, go lay on the bed.
Question # 4 - E - none of the above but don't thow the bone in the garbage.

New question:
What do you do after mommy brings home new plants to plant outside and leaves them for a day?
A) What plants, where are they?
B) Get them out of the pots & play chew the pot.
C) Break up the roots on the newly unpotted plant.
D) Do nothing and wait for mom to find a place to plant them, then remove them into a place of your choice.

LOL. Answer would depend on how frustrated Mum would be if I waited until they were planted before removing them.

This Question definately goes on the test!

LOL! I love "take the steak and leave a sock as payment." I guess I'm pretty lucky - neither of my pups chew on shoes or counter surf.
