    German shepherds are beautiful loyal dogs.
    otherwise, we have a golden retriever & he is the most beautiful, funny, amazing & gentle dog.

    I am a registered German Shepherd breeder and they are fantastic family dogs provided you put in the effort with socializing and training. But this is the same for any breed that you consider.

    No one can ever guarantee that a dog will not have hip or elbow displaysia but we are one of the breeds that do test for it and have very high standards in the dogs we use for breeding so the chances are highly decreased.

    Most breeders do offer a refund if you have to return the dog to them if it's diagnosed with the disease which you will not get buying a crossbred backyard bred dog or from a pet shop.

    There are so many fantastic breeds out there, I would suggest going down to a dog show in your area and have a look at what's around and talk to some breeders if you are wanting a purebred.

    All the best

    Love all the votes for pugs!! Funny dogs!! My mum has two pugs and a pound pup, I've got two boxers. Boxers are great friends with the pugs. Only trouble we run into with the pugs with my DD is they like to jump on her because they're so excitable and they've got really strong/sharp claws! Ow! Boxers are lovely with DD but don't like strangers coming near her and get a bit cranky about that. Haven't had much personal experience with the breeds you mentioned though OP.
