In the parking lot of Ralphs we saw a great dane! The man was waiting for his wife to finish shopping. It was a year and a half year old black berkshire (proper term?) spayed female. It was HUGE! He said she was actually big for her age. He looked to be 6 feet and she came up to his diaphram area 0_0
We are discussing what dog\s to get when we put Chaos to sleep (which will be soon due to his agression and health)
We are thinking of german shepard and great dane from rescues.Not ness. a pure bred since shepards are cuter when mixed ;)
I want the german shepard face for one and the dane face for the other. Of course I'm not going to base the search on looks. They have to be cat friendly, little kid friendly, preferably small critter friendly, and be friendly and healthy.
This won't be until after June thougn

Er, if you want to make sure you don't have another dog with agression problems you may want to reconsider a mix of a GSD and a GD.

Well we kinda want two dogs. One to be a german shepard mix and the other to be a dane mix.
Chaos was NOT trained. He was my brothers dog and during those few months, he got fucked over royally in the training department. I tried but I wasn't sucessful :(
I've had a shepard who was the SWEETEST dog I've ever had. I personally don't think they have agression issues unless they are trained that way. If the dogs were raised right and we keep up training I don't see why they can't be wondeful dogs!

*Knows a tad about dogs. Sorta like you, with rats, but with dogs!*

GSD are great dogs with people, but they have a tendency to be a tad nasty around other dogs. I would very much suggest getting one laid back breed with a GSD so there were no fights for dominance later.

I know you know about dogs :)
I'm just saying from my experience :)
Our purebred was housed with a cockapoo (blah to term). That dog was very active and in your face. Kvetch (gsd) was great with her :)
I wouldn't get a purebred but definatly a mix.
Of course this won't happen for a bit so I will be researching both dog breeds and how to train them (been reading up on it prior just for fun;)

I like Border Collie's, our pooch is cross Border and he's as mad as a hatter! Good dog though, he's amazing with the kids and even at 12yrs old he's still fit, healthy and acting like a puppy :-)

He's very cute. He is kinda a pretty boy though. Fancy spiked\wavy hair cut, hazel eyes (like me), and a cute facial structure ;)

Friendship!? I was looking for something else. *cackles*

I like border collies but they are too high strung.

They're not highly strung, they're just insane! When we got Odie the vet made the comment "ohh, he'll be a puppy forever, you'd better be ready for that!" all these years later the guy was right.. daft pooch just wants to play all the time he's awake.

Kids were playing with a Border when we were out at the weekend too, kept bringing them it's toy then waiting for them to throw it.. never thought we'd get away from the place... as we were walking out I looked back and it was off pestering someone else to play!

I guess what I meant was, they have too much energy for me. Danes and shepards need exercise but not as much as a border collie. One or two good walks a day would be fine for those two breeds. A border collie needs constant stimulation. Plus I don't think my brother would want a dog that's smarter then him in the house ;0

Hee hee Dane people don't call them bershire, she was more then likely either a boston or a black with irish markings. I use to work for a dane breeder many years ago they are wonderful all around dogs.

I figured it was wrong! At least you knew what I meant!
I love danes. Every dane I've ever met was soooo sweet and not pushy (through training I know)
She was black with a white stomach and her paws were white (mittens)

Aww sounds so cute, most danes I've worked with aren't pushy of course there's the odd ones :-)

Those markings would be the Irish gene it's in alot of breeds, I've seen in most common in labs. I've even seen shar-pei with that gene looks funny on them.
