After weeks of telling everyone I see that I'm looking for a GP puppy and searching the online classifieds of the 5 largest cities relatively close to us, the only pups I can find are GSD/GP mixes. The mother is an AKC registered obedience trained GSD and the father is a working GP. In your opinion what would be the pros and cons of this mix, in particular with regard to usefulness as a livestock/chicken guardian? Knowing some things about GPs and having owned several GSDs the one thing I can say for sure is that the pups would be super intelligent, but what else? It's ironic that I want a GP and my DH wants a GSD. In fact, I plan on trying to find him a GSD pup for Christmas. Your thoughts?
