Raising 2 female gsd from 2 different litters

( )

My wife and I can not agree on a female GSD. I like the black and grey, and she the black and red.

Can we get both dogs. They are 2 weeks apart in age, both about 8 weeks old.

We've had a GSD before, but never 2. What do you think?

Total German Shepherd:

I think that this would be no problem at all as far as age in concerned. Sometimes issues may arise as the dogs mature if they are both boys or a boy and a girl if you don't have them "fixed" so just be aware of that.

But as far as having 2 to raise together you will have twice the fun, and twice the responsibility. I've had 2 or more German Shepherds in the house with me for most of my adult life now and have loved it so good luck with your new companions - and send in some pictures when you get the chance.

Raising Two Pups
by: Anonymous

You can raise two pups, however be aware that pups kept together tend to develope a closer bond with each other rather than bonding to their owner (The Pack). I am raising two pups at this time but keep them seperated and train seperately creating a stronger bond with me. I do let them play together when I am with them so they both still see me as the pack leader. Good Luck
