Message Subject I'm thinking of getting a german shepherd
Poster Handle Anonymous Coward
Post Content
I have a friend who breeds them and she seems happy with them as a pet. 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.

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.

I highly recommend any of the dog books by the monks of New Skete.

They specifically raise German Shepherds and understand them. It'll open your eyes to the needs of dogs and their community and behavior.
