I didn't vote, because I think it depends on the dog more than the sex. My only GSD was female and very affectionate. My other dogs of various breeds were - 2 males and the rest female. They were all equally affectionate.

You are probably quite right. I do not mean to give everybody the wrong impression thinking I am looking for or expecting an over-the-top lover such as a Lab, Pug or a Golden Retriever. Actually that is a bit much for me.

I love so many, many things about German Shepherds and I am just hoping to get one who is considered highly affectionate within the variation of this particular breed.

In my house, it's my male.

But my dogs are two totally different 'type' of dogs. My female is go-go-go, rough and in your face, while my male is a sensitive, affectionate, couch potato.

Can't vote either ... I have had both and it just depends on the dog, not the sex of the dog.

I have a female who's a total mama's girl!

I really do think it depends on the dog though. And nothing wrong with Labs either! I'm the black sheep of my family getting a GSD, everyone in my family has had Labs! lol

I find my female gsd is way more affectionate than my bfs male shepherd. He's more independant.

My females have always been more affectionate and loving than my males. But then again, I like independent-minded, serious males.
