Question by jovianembassy: Is it fair to say that aren’t many (temperament) with a pure-bred ?
I myself, prefer animals, because I believe that they are healthier, and I don’t like the idea of someone breeding dogs and cats, when the size of their populations don’t need our help.

But as a cat person, I’ve only really been around Shepherds (and I love them). I’ve been considering getting one for years now, but I’m thinking I should get a pure breed, because I’m hoping that a pure breed is more aligned with the temperament that one would expect from a German . Am I more likely to get one with the quintessential “German Shepherd” personality if I get a pure-breed as opposed to a mixed-breed?

Most breed temperaments are similar, however each dog is different. Breed standards are only rough guidelines to the breed. (For example, I know someone with the LAZIEST dog ever, and he’s a boxer)

Quite frankly, I’ve never heard that one before. Sure, we all kinds of doodle and -oodle and -poo designer breeds, and I’ve even heard of some -inu and quite a few -eagle breeds as well. Though, actually they are not breeds per se, but “hybrids”. That is – until they start breeding true after a certain […]
