Default Do German shepherds like to snuggle?

Some of the German shepherds I have been with liked snuggling some others don't. Lobo my sable German shepherd is more sometimes doesn't mind it and other times doesn't like it. He used to be a better snuggler 8 weeks-1 year. Nowadays, he changed his thoughts about snuggling. Last good snuggle time we had was new years and Xmas eve and a couple weeks ago. Swat my aunt's GSD loves it. However, I we live so far away and don't have time to snuggle when we are together. I'm one of those people who rather snuggle in private than public for some reason. I only seen him 4 times and spend lots of time with him when I see him. Nico the owner says she doesn't like to be hugged, head on her, or other snuggling but I had my face up against her chest with her arms around me for 30-45 minutes and my head on her side for same amount of time. She seemed to like hugs too. However, I don't tell Nico's owner cause I'm worried that she might say something I won't like. Dante is a huge snuggle bug and is the medium sized GSD. Jackson a GSD who I walked once at the SPCA loved to snuggle. Kona a German shepherd who passed away a couple years ago Lobo's owner's last shepherd loved to snuggle but owner has a hard time believing that he loved to snuggle with me. We would snuggle for hours eye to eye holding each other in each others arms or his back to me and me holding him. He loved it.

Mine is a snuggler and she is very good at it. Every night she sleeps with me, she doesn't move, and in the morning she puts her head on my chest and just looks at me.

O Nico's owner and Lobo's owner both said that no German shepherd likes snuggling but I disagree maybe some don't and others do.

However, when ever i see Lobo he forces me to lay down and lays on me chest to stomach on me kissing my face than puts his head down on me resting. It's so sweet. He's more into the other kind of snuggling when he is exhausted or when its nightime.

I couldve picked another one out of the litter but let the breeder choose, Apache was described as "aggressive lover" she doesnt snuggle or curl up at my feet yet, but she will eventually because if I slip some fingers into her most comfortable spot (the cage) she does move up against me.
She is still an aggressive lover, jumps up with tons of licks to your face. Or if I get down on all 4s she forces herself under me and goes belly up and whines alot.

Mine will tolerate me on the floor when she is in her place only if she is tired. Otherwise, in the car she always lays down and puts her head on me. That's about it...

When Lisl was younger than now she would, but not now unless we're sitting on the couch.
