GORGEOUS pup!! I'd be stopping, too! Grim got some people to stop their cars, too... so I know how you are feeling! Now he gets mainly wide berths and small gasps, LOL!

Thank you! She walks on lead almost perfectly for the last several days now. I really hope she doesn't scare anyone, but I know how non-dog people are, and how even some dog people are frightened of a German Shepherd Dog, Doberman, Rottweiler, etc. That seems to be mostly the 'lap dog' crowd.
They just aren't used to seeing an animal this large.

Seems their unfounded reputation precedes them from too many TV shows and movies making them out to all be 'killer' police and military dogs.

Lisl has shown no fear towards strangers, but she doesn't show any signs of aggresiveness toward unknown people either. She seems very sure of herself and confident. None of my other German Shepherd Dogs acted quite like this. They were either sort of bashful, but warming up to you eventually, or they were extremely wary of you, like Ossie was, but he'd like you anyway if you gave him a chance.

When the woman in the Hummer stopped me today, Lisl sat down at my left side and just looked at the woman talking to me from two lanes over.
