I've had GSDs in some sort of pure breed or dominant mix since I was 12. Every single GSD is different. There should be some basic similarities, but you can't count on it as the breeding is just all over the place, so you take each dog as an individual.

I'd advise you to meet the dog and spend some time with her and try to have as few preconceived notions as possible. Typically they aren't difficult as far as being rescued goes, and most are intelligent enough to know what is happening. There may be some grieving for their old families if they've been close, so if you take her and she's somewhat unresponsive and acts sad for awhile, don't worry too much. Just give her time to grieve and let her know you are there when she's ready.

I would also suggest that if you take her, you have them bring her to your house and leave her with you, rather than you taking her from theirs.
