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.

I didn't have any line information on Lisl when I bought her, except that she is from WG & CZ lines. I just wrote to him and he said he will send me the information.
I will post back when I receive the info.

There is somebody who posted here about what happened to him, and I was worried for you, for a second. Same thing happened to him, but the guy got out of the truck, sucker punched the owner and tried to steal the dog! I'm glad that didn't happy to you, but watch out.

Get used to it!! I took my pup to Balboa park the week before Christmas and literally got stopped like 7 or 8 times... All wanting to pet, ask what breed, how old, name...etc. In fact if I had a dime for every time I got asked how old I'd be a rich woman, lol! And once while on a trail we got stopped by this mom and her two young daughters, must have spent 20 minutes with them and they even took pictures of my dog LOL.
I also have a long coat and they seem to warrant just a little extra attention and wow your pup is so completely adorable and poofy... Mine just hit 4 months and has lost most of his poof.
