Might be getting a dog [Advice Please!] watch


    First off never buy a dog off the internet, lies are always around. If you really want to find out more, go and SEE the dog.
    I don't agree with what is being said about gsd's being overly protective, although I don't know much about the breed I do know they are in the pastoral group, bred to work livestock.
    This means that unless this dog has been around livestock (which I highly doubt, living in a flat), livestock may be an issue for you (including other pets you may have).
    The most important thing for a gsd is socialization, emphasise this point across when you view this dog. How much has it been socialized? Don't take their word for it, make sure you see it- try and take a kid along with you or/and a dog.
    Gsd's are wonderful animals, I don't care what other people here have said, but they need the right owner.
    I haven't read your profile, but seeing other comments, at 16 I don't think you should get a dog, sure now you say you'll walk it x amount of times but life takes over sometimes- schoolwork can get on top of you so easily.
    To emphasise my point, advertisements are never a good starting point for searching for a dog. Breeders and rescues are the way forward ^^

    they dont really crap on carpet, you can get scented pads for them which encourage them to do it somewhere else (outside)
