I'm not sure. Daisy is a pure German shepherd from a friend of ours who's police K-9 breed with their family German shepherd. She was the runt and the last one to go. We really didn't want another dog but my little boy fell in love with her. She is very smart though and we are glad to have her. At 8 weeks she will sit for a treat and go through the doggie door. ( just not to potty).GratefulGirl said:Daisy is a cutie! My peepers will arrive Thursday or Friday and we are will get a puppy too. Is it ok to get a mixed breed or should I stick to those herding/protection breeds? I have heard that Marema and Australian Cattle or Shepherd are good ones. Any suggestions appreciated.
