Assuming Q Man's question is serious, my guess is that the OP's hubby is seeking similar personality traits or working ability, or both, to a beloved past GSD; and fondly believes that a dog of the same breeding, even a few generations further down the line, is going to replicate some or all of those traits.

Well the pair of them should please realise that the chances of this being the case are pretty slim.
Some things might be similar, or there might be no similarity at all.

And I'm wondering if they've thought what they will do if the new generation grows up to be nothing like the previous dog - quite possible. Are they then going to resent or reject it ?

Much more sensible surely to investigate a range of breeders and find someone produing nice healthy puppies, whatever the bloodlines; then the chances are increased of having a trouble-free relationship with the new dog, and any similar bits of character to the dog he liked would be a bonus.
Never a good idea to try to 'replace' a loved dog, ever; dogs are individuals.
