The German Shepherd Dog is a purebred dog, and is commonly mated with other breeds. Some common breeds that the German Shepherd is mixed with include: Golden Retriever, Husky (called a “Gerberian Shepskies” crossbreed), German Shepherd, Pitbull, Rottweiler, Corgi (called a “Corman Shepherd” crossbreed), and Border Collie (called a “Shollie” crossbreed).
As a purebred dog, German Shepherd puppies make very loyal companions as outdoor pets. Although they could be trained to be indoors, they tend to shed a lot, so much so that some people nickname this breed “German Shedder.” If you bring it indoors, be ready to do a lot of cleaning. One benefit of their hair, though, is that it tends to resist dirt and debris, so unless the dog is constantly rolling in mud puddles, you likely won’t have to bathe it more than once a month.
This is a very athletic breed that likes to run around and be active, so be ready to play with it a lot, go on walks, “play catch,” etc. They typically play well with children, as long as the children are careful with the dog and as long as the dog is socialized and well trained early on from puppyhood.
