by Karen
(Oakland Ca)






Should I get a female or male based on this info.?:

1. It will get 2hrs of time spent exercising and playing with it.

2. We will not be home for 6 hrs. every day except weekends.

3. We want a g.s.d. that has a steady and relaxed temperament
Thanks!

German shepherds....female or male?
by: John J.

Males are usally calmer and laid back from my experience of GSD. Females are more hyper and more protective in some cases. They both need
a lot of excerise and a strong pack leader.

You should get a female GSD because males are empty headed. They grow distracted more easily and are usually less protectful.

I have a female named Jazz and she's the best dog I ever owned!
