German Shepard/lab Mix
We are planning to get a dog and there's this one that really catches our eyes but me being the researcher I had to research the breed first. However, there doesn't seem to be a lot of information on this breed. The dog is a German Shepard/Labrador mix. For those who have one or don't have one, do you think this dog is a dog for beginners? I'll comment more questions that I have.

Both great dogs in temperement and intelligence. However, one big snag with both breeds is a tendency for hip dysplacia. You will have to try and see the heritage. I have owned both breeds and grew up with my father's working Alsation. My last dog,a yellow Labrador, had the worst dysplacia the vet had ever seen. :-(
Answer is there is no answer - it is not a 'breed' it is a cross therefore will inherit genes from both parents and it would depend on their temperament and health as in all the current fad designer crosses such as Cockapoos and Labradoodles. One breed name is actually German Shepherd dog and anything crossed will have a relatively high prey drive and need firm but fair training plus suitable socialising.
