I have always had German Shepherds, but when my last one passed away 7 yrs ago. I was talked into a wonderful miniature that I love to death, but I miss having a larger dog to play with and work with. My concern is that I haven't seen much on whether Giants and Miniatures do well together or not? Does anyone have any information for me on this?

I have a 8 yr old mini and a 6 mo old giant and they get along great.
