It's funny that someone said she/he was creepy. I was out with my 12 week old pup yesterday and a little boy said, "your dog is creepy." I said, "well, he's very nice, would you like to pet him." And he came over, very VERY timidly, and my little guy sat back and let him pet him so nicely. Little boy thought it was great. I couldn't believe he thought he was creepy, he's a puppy! lol
I love changing people's perception of the GSD, especially kids. I don't care as much about adults, but I'll stop what I'm doing to let a little kid see that they aren't all mean, scary, dogs.
