Question by jovianembassy: Is it fair to say that there aren’t many (temperament) surprises with a pure-bred animal?
I myself, prefer mixed-breed 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 German 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 Shepherd. 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)
