|We had one growing up and now my parents have two gp mixes, one is gp and malamute and one is gp and chow.
Rowdy, the one we got when I was two, was great. He was VERY smart. He was also VERY protective of our home. I have no doubt that he would have attacked if not killed if someone tried to break into our house at night. He was even suspicious of friends if they tried to go into the backyard without us.
He was clever and willful, always escaping the yard. He would leave for a few hours or even a few days but always came back. I have no idea how he continued to get out...
Later in life he had hip dysplasia. Other than that I don't remember him having and medical probs.
Of the two mixes my parents have now, the boy (the gp and malamute mix) seems kind of like a simpleton. He is goofy and jumps up on everyone, but that could be due to the fact that they haven't trained him at all and he doesn't get enough exercise.
The girl (chow gp mix) is very smart. She was a little escape artist as well. I am sure with training she could learn just about anything.
They are very cool, beautiful, regal dogs. Enjoy!
