|Kayos and Havoc||
Nope, 6 GSD's and 2 foster GSD's in nearly 30 years and not had an attack.
Mayhem has growled at a few kids and Havoc has barked at a few strangers that have approached me and given me the willies. I don't consider those 'attacks'.

|GSD Fanatic 101||
Tokara is my two year old female GSD. She has the typical GSD temperament with the aloofness to strangers that walk up to me without invitation but is awesome with kids. She's never bitten anyone however she has nipped someone on the butt. It was totally on me. We were having food delivered and I ran to do the door which likely made her anxious and on top of that I didn't do the routine I normally do. (Sit and stay four feet from the door). Anyhow, I opened the door and got the food then the guy returned with the drinks. When I walked out a second time, Tokara got out and went into a barking fit.
I called her back and told her no firmly. Since then I have had no problems with nipping or biting. However, certain things still irk her. Like if I'm outside on the porch and someone walks up to the house where I'm sitting she will give a low growl but she often stops when I tell her to.
She is a very well behaved dog. Doesn't bark unless she needs to, great off leash and recalls very nicely. She has excellent obedience skills. I have no doubt she would be able to get into Schutzhund.
At least I know that if I were ever to get into a bad situation I would have my trusty companion to help me get out of it :P
In short, she has nipped once but never attacked anyone.

Elly May has gotten her hair up 3 times...and all of the people did what I asked them not to.
Please don't make any sudden moves !

|newlie||No. We previously owned a yellow lab and a more sweet and gentle dog it would be hard to find. Newlie likes people, but he nipped several dogs at doggie day care. No blood or anything like that but I wasn't willing to chance it so he doesn't go to doggie day care, doggie parks or anything like that anymore. I do think Newlie would react if my husband or I were in danger. Shortly after we got him, I took him out just for a little walk up and down or street. It was probably about nine o'clock and dark outside. Newlie all the sudden wheeled around and planted all four feet with an attitude that said "Make my day" and I turned, too, because I had not heard anything and couldn't imagine what he was doing. There was a jogger coming up right behind us. I pulled Newlie over to one side to give the jogger room and Newlie did lunge, but stopped when I told him "No." As I say, he generally likes people and is happy to see them, but I think the combination of some guy coming up behind us in the dark was enough to activate his protective instincts.|

|zoorun||My girl never has, but she has scared a few people pretty bad. She's charged a moose that was charging me though.|

|Galathiel||I voted no, but my first GSD, a female, totally would have if someone entered the back yard uninvited. She was very protective and I was a kid myself. If my little nieces and nephews were in the backyard, even neighbors that were previously allowed in at will were kept at bay. She was very controllable, definitely not an out of mind/body experience, but a determination to protect her turf/family.|

|David Taggart||I was waiting with my 5 months old Lucy for my friend at the door of the Post Office. One of my acquaintances came from my back and placed his hand on my shoulder to say "Hallo". Lucy was fast as a lightning - she lunged and grabbed him by his stomach. Luckily, just his shirt. I shouted "No!!!", probably, too loudly. And, it was the first and the last time she attacked. To my dissapointment, she showed very low interest in bite work, failed Schutzhund protection and I had to leave the club. Anyone, any stranger can pet her, except tall men of a strong built. But she just barks at them, producing a low, lazy bark, I have never noticed any attempt to bite since that accident at the Post Office.|

No to "attack". But.....Kacie bit our friend in the butt(luckily in the wallet!). We had a bad storm roll thru earlier in the day and he came over to see the damage. Kacie was fine with him until he started walking further into the yard....and she did a dirty tag. I know it was my fault. Storms scare her and I bet her adrenaline was still spiked. I should not have had her out there with the friend. It was very sudden and unexpected, and I learned my lesson. I manage the dogs well, because I know both Kacie and Onyx would bite if they had the chance, and they are NEVER around young children, ever!
This was the deck, just a portion of our damaged yard:
