Mutt Or A Purebred??

To all the German shepherd lovers in this big world: Do you prefer a purebred GSD or a GSD mutt?? (Remember-mutts are most often found in the pound...)

I like them both! But it does depend on the individual dog.

I agree with Jane. I love purebreds and mutts. It depends on the dog.

I LUV ALL TYPES OF DOGS! <3


LOL! I love my mutt, Jazzi, and she is Lab/Golden mix. But getting a purebred, helped me realize the benefits of them. Family history, Genetics, Hips, EVERYTHING. I <3 all of it!! We don't know Jazzi's history at all.... it kinda scares me. What problems we might have with her because of it.

I love both.

I currently have a GSD/Rottie mix and he is my heart dog. He is so into me...lol. He is great off leash, only wants to be with me. Listens to my every command and WANTS to. He is good with cats, small animals, other dogs, babies, kids...he goes hiking/camping/swimming with me. He is a "take everywhere" kind of dog. He is house trained, crate trained. Doesn't chew anything that is inappropriate including garbage. I could leave him alone at a year and a half. He plays fetch, wants to interact with you, loves to be pet but doesn't beg for it.

I get more compliments on him than I can even remember.

His ONLY fault is that he can be leash reactive due to being attacked on leash. And even that isn't too bad or extreme.

I just love him so much. Of course I also love my other dog. But he's more independent, does chew inappropriate things, not so good off leash, doesn't really care to listen to me, doesn't like to be pet, wants things on his own terms, and has no desire to please me. I blame the chow in him. LOLOLOL.

But my GSD mix is incredible.

I prefer purebreds. I just am the type of person who likes to plan things out, ESPECIALLY when it's something BIG like adding a dog. I feel I am doing a better job of it if I can have a general idea of why my puppy may turn out to be like as an adult.

My first two dogs were mutts - I have a real soft spot for shelter mixes. they are so special in so many ways!!

I never thought I would ever have a pure-bred dog, or that I would actually BUY a dog, LOL! But I wanted something very specific for a very specific purpose, so here I am!

I love them all, but to be honest, I want to know what I have in my hands, especially if it is for a specific purpose.

Even with a purebred shelter dog, if you don't have the pedigree, you don't know what you have in your hands.
I wish I could get the pedigree of Kacie and Onyx, they are "pure" GSD, though a "mix" of lines.
I loved my mixed breed Clover/I'd take another of her in a heartbeat.
