As a gsd owner you do need be confident because if this breed picks up on nerves from the owner can cause all sorts of issues if yoyr first time owner of gsd maybe pup is best way to go not necessarily good idea to get full adult gsd as male are usually quite dominant by nature and they do sense fear in an owner gsd are a beautiful breed very loyal to there owners ive owned this breed over 30 years and still adore them

i will try to learn more about GSD's.yes your right a puppy would be the best choice for me. I am working on making my place friendly to a GSD puppy.I found a good breeder but the puppy's are not registered but i seen two full grown dogs which my friend bought from him.So i think i can trust him.The breeder told me he will give me a pedigree of the dog.Other than that the breeder is a Police dog handler.i am planing on buying a pup next month or in December.
Sorry to hear that.I did visit the dog and he was barking at me all the time.and the owner said that the dog was chained at all times because he try's to bite anyone he does't know.i don't think i can handle him.but the dog looks amazing.

I've only been bit by one dog and it was a dog who knew me but was very scared at the time.
I think it's how you approach them. You can also tell by their body language what their intentions may be. Just take it slow and at their pace when you meet. If you get the dog plan on doing a lot of training.

thank you for the respond. I do have a 11 Year dog.But i have no experience with GSD.The main problem is most of the dogs here has't been socialize well. they spend most of their life on cages or chained.Which make them aggressive.That's why i am worried.
thank you for the reply.I will go to this place and do as you told me and see how the dog react.

|Liesje||Looks like a purebred long coat GSD (probably what they call "lion" is a long stock coat). If you go visit I would act neutral and let him come to you. Just go with your gut. Some dogs are outwardly very friendly but if he seems more aloof or skittish, don't push it. Some GSDs are very social, others take time to bond and trust. Without knowing more about the dog's pedigree, temperament, and history it's hard to say.|

|huntergreen||there is always a chance of a dog bite for all reasons and including an accidental bite while playing. in my opinion, sounds like your a bit leary of this one and possibly of gsd in general. maybe a gsd might not be a good choice for a first time dog owner.|
