I've had seven GSD's all male except for our current young lady. The female, at least Maggie, has been the most affectionate.

Actually, she had us--my wife and me--worried that she may be too affectionate, and not showing normal ...stand back to be introduced..attitude that our other males had shown. She on the other hand would greet everyone with, tail wagging sign excepting total strangers. However, since she has grown older...currently 3...she is more reserved with strangers.

I missed out on the edit time first go around...wanted to add that currently we have 2 females.

One is independent and rather ' aloof'. She's friendly enough but not a love bug, per say. You can love on her for a few minutes then, she'll go off by herself when she's had enough.

The other is a true love bug...has to touch all the time, likes being close.
She will sleep with you, on a pillow if you let her. She wants to be in your lap all of time and I'll never be able to go shower alone again ... a true 'Velcro' dog.

...but, I still don't think it has to do with the SEX of the dog.

I also think it has to do with the gender of the person. We always grew up with females in the house (not GSDs, just mixes) and they were always more affectionate with me and my dad but still protective of the girls, but now that I have a boy...he definitely sleeps more on GFs side of the bed than mine

Sorry - I didn't vote - I think it depends upon the dog. That being said - I've seen very few GSDs that are not affectionate.

I've had both sexes who have been equally affectionate.

I have always liked males more, usually with any kind of animal.

Our male is far more affectionate than the females we've had. But given the results of the poll, it looks like it depends on the dog rather than the gender.

You've never had an affectionate GSD? How sad, I'd hate that.
