Aggressive-ness?

My GSD, Pepper is now about 3.5 years old. She's a great dog and well trained etc. These days her paw is infected and the salt on the roads is making it worse. This morning she was limping rather badly and I went to check her paw and she attacked me rather aggressively. I do know that she is in a lot of pain and I did try to probe her paw....so I am hoping that it was only because of the pain. Tell me this is normal.

Need to get her to the vet.

Sounds like a completely normal reaction for a dog in pain that hasn't had a lot of desensitization to handling.

I train my dogs from the get go that I can handle them in any way and it's extremely positive, so that when one cuts their hock wide open on ice at the park, I can take him inside, roll him over, clean out the cut, cut dead skin away, apply crème and wrap it without so much as a disagreement, and without help from anyone else- with a dog party in the next room over.

I'd just get her checked out and don't take it personally, but start handling her more when she's better with yummy treats as a reward.
