No. Puppies require so much time and money, plus why would you keep a big dog in a small apartment?

Having a puppy in an apartment and toilet training it want be easy, but if you are very dedicated and prepared to put a lot of hard work in its doable

No, wait until you get a house. It's not right to keep a GSD (which have a high amount of energy) in a small apartment. Puppies require endless amounts of money and time, something a busy college student probably can't give it.

what do you expect the puppy to be doing all day while you are at college, probably will chew up your furniture with boredom. They need attention, exercise and space.

i wouldn't recommend it. german shepards can be pretty rambuncious when older, and when young. puppies also require a lot of attention and time. small dogs would be better for an apartment. if you ever move to a house of your own, not an apartment, then probably you could. but i nan apartment, sorry to say, but german...

No its to big of a dog if you really want one get an adult German shepherd not a puppy adults are usually house broken

No.Because when you get the puppy,it grows up FAST.I had one in a small house and I had to give it away because it got to big and much for and apartment.Find your self a smaller dog like a chihuahua,Maltese or a yorkie.Wait till you get a house and finish college then you can get a dog.

Since this is going to be your first dog of your own, I wouldn't recommend any dog for you at this time. Having a family dog is like having a brother or sister, someone else is really responsible for them. Once you have sole responsibility, it is a totally different experience. The first thing you have to think... More

The simple answer obviously is NO. Not only is a flat the wrong space for a big dog, but you're also at college so it will be alone a lot of the time. Plus you don't have an income so wouldn't be able to pay vet bills. Getting any kind of dog would be mean and irresponsible for you. When you're old enough to be... More
