Dobermans / German Shepherds

Hi all... New here! Seems like a friendly, knowledgeable board here. Been searching archives and all that good stuff.

I'm interested in these beautiful Dobermans! I currently have a German Shepherd (GSD) and we have honestly always thought that we wouldn't get another. However, I believe that Henneh probably doesn't have a "typical" GSD temperament, and am still considering them as well.

Anyone here with an experience with both breeds? I know dogs are individuals, but if you had to generalize, what would you say about each? What do you like about each?

Thanks in advance for the opinions!

Ohh my gosh, My mother has GSD's and I come out of her house with loads of hair. I borrowed her Tahoe one time to go to an appointment. BIG mistake! I was covered in dog hair.

I love most breeds of dogs. The GSD being one of them. Reasons why I don't and won't own one is the amount of grooming needed, thier overall size, and I have heard they are more harder to train then dobes. Though I think they are as smart, thier need for working, and training is HUGE. They also have a bit more health problems that are breed related.

I have only seen a handful of really nice GSD's here in Maine. What I see looks nothing like what a GSD should look like.
