But Anthony is a good guy, or at least presents himself as one here

The problem is, people who don't socialize their GSDs enough so they can figure out who is good and who is "bad", I think.

Thank you. I consider myself a good guy. I wear my heart on my sleeve.

As far as the other dog goes, I just heard she's attacked someone on more than just one occasion.

I think the dog senses that I'm leery of her.

Do you want to see calming signals? Enter to an elevator and stare at a randmom stranger right in the eyes...

Thats funny you should say that because last night for the first time my 6 month GSD stood at my gate watching the guy across the street come out of his car and go inside. He just stood their giving him a stare without budging till he was out of site. Then he came galloping to me only to lick me lol. Im guessing its out of fear?

No, that's not the "stare".

The stare usually occurs within close range. I've seen my dog single out a person in a room of 10 people, and just into a trance for that person.

The other dog I'm referring to, does that to me. Maybe no more than 10 feet away, she'll just lock into me, and won't take her eyes off me. No expression, no movement. ... Just a cold stare.
