Read the thread Am I crazy and then think about it. The poster who had children buys a puppy who later bites someone. There are a hundred other such posts on the list of either biting or growling at family members. So is a GSD right for your family? You could consider a rescue who has been temperament tested, has a known history and who you can return to the rescue if there is a problem. GSD people want their dogs with 'heart' but a lot of times that 'heart' comes out as a test that the owner must either pass or fail. So, are you ready for the tests?
