To be fair, she stands out because while there are plenty of dogs in our part of the city and even a few shepherds, she's the only GSD puppy I've seen out and about this summer. I've had to protect her more than once from getting mobbed.
As a puppy he was a total magnet, but once he hit 9-10 months and stopped looking SO puppy like people started backing off. At first I was miffed then I looked at him from their perspective and realized it wasn't personal.
