My only question is about their hips, I always hear stories about them getting some sort of hip problems (I forget what they call it)I also plan on taking it to training, so it will be well behaved in public. [/quote] Well, I bet American Breeders will disagree, but many times people will get originally bred German Shepherds from Germany that have been carefully chosen to create a strong vibrant animal. There's a lot of amateurs, nice people, who dally in breeding animals. I've seen a lot of hip dysplasia from their efforts. It's probably not their fault, just the result of some genetic issues that give a predesposed animal with weaknesses. This however is probably the most expensive means of getting one. Another option is a Timber Shepherd. They're a German Shepherd/Wolf hybrid. They are powerful creatures.

It'll open your eyes to the needs of dogs and their community and behavior. [/quote] It looks like the German Shepherds from Germany are not all that great either... German Cops Ditch German Shepherds for Belgian Breed Read more: http://www.foxnews.com/world/2011/08/23/german-cops-ditch-german-shepherds-for-belgian-breed/#ixzz2CumcnsRX [/quote] Growing up we had German Shepherds and through the years I have had a German Shepherd/ Alaskan Malamute cross and a German Shepherd/Rottweiler cross and what turned me off to purebred German Shepherds is the extreme breeding where the rear slopes down unnaturally. Years ago, the qualifications of the German Shepherd stipulated that the backs of the dog were straight as this denoted a breed that was not fast but had duration which was necessary in a herding dog. As the needs of the police have changed so has their need for more variety in police dog breeds and currently when a drug dog is needed sometimes, a smaller breed the such as a beagle will excel at the job. The Belgian Malinois is a smaller higher energy dog that is currently he second most used breed where protection is warranted.
