German Shepherds are large dogs that weigh between 75-95 pounds and stand 22-26 inches at the withers.

Pitbulls are a touch smaller, weighing 30-60 pounds and measuring 17-21 inches at the withers.

German Shepherds have a reputation for their faithfulness, intelligence, and guardianship

Temperament of the German Shepherd

Without proper socialization they can become excessively possessive or hostile.

Temperament of Pitbulls

They are typically more outgoing and friendly than German Shepherds and tend to be less anxious, making them a great option for families with small children.

They might become uninterested in repetitive commands and tasks, so varying their training helps keep them engaged.
