Default Question about puppy temperament... not very cuddly

This may be a silly question, but this is my first GSD and all the dogs I've had before (with the exception of my Great Pyrenees) have been super cuddly as puppies... I've heard that GSD's are "velcro" dogs, but my puppy (8 weeks old) would rather sit on the other side of the couch than with me, and could take or leave being petted. Is this something that will change over time? Is it possible that he's just still a little nervous (we got him a few days ago.) Is there anything I can do to encourage "cuddly" behavior? What do you guys think?

Thanks!
