Re: Question about non purebread GSD's
With any litter of any breed of puppies, you definately want to observe the parents before committing to purchasing the puppy.
My ex-boyfriend and I rescued a 9 month old GSD/Lab mix from a shelter, so we never got to see the parents or know what his previous home life was like besides some very basic information. We were very lucky because the dog turned out to be the perfect dog. He had the GSD smarts, alertness, and loyalty. But he was WAY more mellow, less mischevious/stubborn/high strung, less prey driven, and was friendly to everybody - which aren't typical GSD qualities. Maybe his parents both had really good temperments...we'll never know.
