I have been thinking and seeing some pure bred GSD pups and wondering how they might get along with my mixed shep/rotts. Two shepherd and rott mixes both females. One is 7, very sweet, 85 pounds and the other is 50 pounds and aggressive. ANY THOUGHTS on this? I'd love some feedback on this.......

There are meny different "interpretations" of what aggressive really is. Would you care to elaborate?

Personally I would work on resolving those issues before I would consider adding another dog to the mix. Adding another dog/puppy could esclate the situation out of control. The puppy could pay the ultimate price should the older dog turn on him/her. The puppy could also learn the other dogs bad habits and trust me 2 dogs with issues is way more than 2 times the effort to control and correct.

Believe me, I have those dogs with issues (aggression, domiance, etc.) and it is more than a hand full. Some days are better than others, but can't and don't take any chances. Have to watch ever second.
