Amina, thank you! I knew that dogs were seen as "unclean and the devil" but didn't understand why!
I live in a very ethnic neighbourhood, and one thing I have discovered is that GSD are seen as mean, aggressive, viscious, etc. because of police work, and some movies. A lot of people are simply ignorant about the versatility of a GSD and just assume that since they are largely police dogs / attack dogs / protection dogs that they are ALL like that.
My dad was watching a movie the other day - Columbiana - and the "heroine" had trained her two dogs (I think they were rotties - I saw about 45 seconds of the movie) to eat anything on command. She captured the people that killed her parents and had her rotties "eat" them. These are the types of movies that I am talking about that lead other people to assume ALL rotties are evil ... and will eat you on command.
