Breeding an aggressive German Shepherd

My German shepherd is 2 years old and i want to breed her but she is quite dog agressive, mostly because she's scared of other dogs, any advice?

Yes, spaying her would be the best thing you could do for her and the breed (and you - whew - not fun to produce more scared dogs!). ETA - will let others talk about the genetics of temperament and fear and how they are passed down, especially from the mom, who influences behavior as well.

And have to add- good on you that you asked, instead of coming on here in a couple of months asking about body temperature or coat colors!

Spay and do not breed. I have an aggressive dog as well. While I am totally head over heels with him, gorgeous dog, wonderful with me, I would not dream of passing his genes on to a litter of pups. It wouldn't be fair for the pups to grow up like this nor would it be fair for owners to deal with it when I can stop it now.

Why? Love the dog you have, and if you want another dog, get another dog. You don't need to breed her, and if she's genetically fearful then you absolutely shouldn't.

May I ask why you want to breed her?

I agree with others about spaying. But is there an underlying reason you want to breed an aggressive dog? It isn't good for society...

Why do you want to breed an aggressive female? And according to your profile, you are 17? Are you financially stable enough to deal with possible repercussions that go along with breeding? Has your female had any health certs? Hips/elbows? Have you shown her? Have you worked her in any capacity? How many years of experience do you have with dogs and GSDs? What makes this female worthy enough to breed? Are you being mentored by anyone? What is her pedigree? What qualities does she have?

Take a step back, educate yourself and don't even think about breeding until you get much more experience.

Spay her. Unless she has some great qualities that would overcome genetically bad nerves and you know how to match up a pedigree to try to bring out the best qualities, spay her.
