You're all over the map there. Pitbulls and American Bulldogs have somewhat similar personalities, but those 2 are nothing like GSDs or Labs. Labs are the easiest of the bunch to socialize, both with dogs and people. Pits and American Bulldogs are the hardest to train of the bunch due to their stubbornness, though male GSDs can be very stubborn also, especially during adolescence. Labs and Pits are the highest energy of the bunch. Anyway, research the breeds and see which best fits your personality and household.
They shed like no other. Seriously. And be prepared for lots of socializing and training. GSDs are my favorite breed but be forewarned that they are a lot of work. If you put the time in though, they will be the best dog you've ever had.
Here are 4 of my 5, from left to right: GSD-Pit, GSD-Lab, GSD, GSD.
One of mine kinda looks like bea, her name is babe.
Another day, another opportunity. Don’t let it slip away.
She is definitely smart! She's an outside dog, so we don't notice her shedding in a horrible way, but I do think it is year-round, and when she really gets to shedding, it is all over the place. Sometimes when she comes inside, it will get all over the place... So I guess if that would be a concern for you, that might be something to keep in mind. It doesn't bother us much since the majority of it happens outside.
I am going to refrain from giving you the speech about how dog trainers and behaviorists alike despise hearing the term "outside dog." However, since this thread is supposed to be compromised of dog lovers, I am going to encourage you to educate yourself on this topic by reading one of the many articles on why dogs need to be inside, such as this one[wordpress.com].
