We are a family of 4 living on 6 beautiful hinterland acres. Kids are 8 and 2 yrs old.
We had a beautiful male GSP who lived to 17yrs of age and he had the most placid beautiful temperament you could ever wish for.
After a couple of years without a dog its time to fill the void..
We are ready for another dog... and will probably end up with another GSP unless we can find a smaller substitute.
I would love to know if there are any other breeds out there with the same temperament however maybe a bit smaller and less need for exercise.
Or ideally any GSP breeders who are breeding smaller dogs as I have seen massive variations from our boy who was a King at around 38kg and not an ounce of fat on him.
We love to camp and need a dog who will stick around at home and when we are out and about..
Thank you for any advice.
