What line will your next GSD be from?

So what line of GSD will you choose for your next pack member? Is this a departure from the norm? What makes this line and/or gender special to you?

Here's my train of thought, you can follow it if you want.

Re: What line will your next GSD be from?

I vote "Some European line, either showline, working line, or a mix, that can work and live as a GSD is meant to be." My current is a rescue mixed breed. I want a drivey, energetic, pushy, confident, well grounded, strong nerved, moderate structured, courageous, aloof yet polite, excellent temperament GSD but I know I just do not care for American lines and many German showlines.

I'd prefer a male but probably will get a female to cater to my goober's whim.

My vote was West German Showlines (Highlines)... but being in Germany, he will probably be also a rescue.

Re: What line will your next GSD be from?

I went with a female Dutch Shepherd

Prior to getting Loki, I almost pulled the trigger and switched to a female Dutchie.

Of course I am glad I didn't, but I love Dutch Shepherds

LOL almost pulled the trigger! ROFL Jack, excellent choice of words! I, too, am so glad that you got Loki instead.

The dutch would be a great choice! I'm glad you got Loki, he is so adorable, and I love watch him change.
My next family member will hopefully be from W. German and Czech working lines-and a boy for a change!

Re: What line will your next GSD be from?

I like the DDR dogs from Steve Lino as well.

Really, if I could get a divorce, there wouldn't be any pet limits instituted in my home

Loki is like a Chameleon, both in personality and color (that is what is nice about the sables).

Whatever I get next, I want an all black dog, wether it's DDR or a Dutchie (which is top choice).

LOL, just need to have permission to pull the trigger on another dog (hi Patti).

You will love a boy Jane, they are so sensitive and gentle

This place had some really nice litters of Dutchies when I got Loki, they were all black, and full of personality, and little biters
