Oh i didnt mean that i thought you didnt have time it was just another suggestion.
Personally i wouldnt get a GSD but thats more cause not my 'type' of dog. I have 2 American Staffies and 2 small dogs and honestly im more worried about my little dog with my bubs then the two staffies.
My mum has 2 Golden Retrievers and they are super gentle with my younger brother and mother any kittens we get.
If you have experience with Greyhounds why not one of them (jealous!)

We got a retriever in January and he has been beautiful with kids and other dogs. He's quite submissive in that he crouches down in front of other dogs, tail wagging, wanting to be friends. Same with kids.
Of course I would never leave him unsupervised with kids, but so far so good.
He's an outside dog so no issue with hair.
Loves water and retrieving balls and toys. When our bub is born in September, we think this dog is going to be great.
Agree with everyone who says any dog can bite and also agree to look for a reputable breeder who breeds for temperament.
Be careful with designer dogs. Depending on the breeder, you're not necessarily getting what you think you're getting - and definitely not guaranteed the best of either breed involved. Also - remember you're getting a cross! Don't get sucked into paying a fortune !

I'd do a lot of research before you get a sheltie. A lot of them are lovely but there seems to be a portion of them that are quite snappy.

Love my greys and salukis.
Unfortunately when you have backyard breeders breeding dogs without any concern for temperament and then selling them to any old person yeh you will get some unbalanced dogs. BYB's mostly focus on the "in" breeds which is also why you may see more of that particular breed in the papers. For example Staffies are the latest d**k extension, often passed off as Pitbulls. What breed of dog is now mostly in the media for dog attacks?
You end up paying more but thats where going through a reputable breeder who breeds for the right reasons has its benefits.
