Oh dear. I'm seriously guys, please stop. I just might point a gun at the breeder & get the pup today!! So many lovely stories. I'm really happy for u guys.
Well, for me, he's going to be my first pet ever in my 25 years of existence!! Can u believe it? I hadn't got a dog till now considering my profession (I'm a sailor) & I wouldn't have had the time but this time enough! I've already thought of a name since d past 2 yrs!!!
But hey, he's coming in mid December so my dream is finally seeming near to meet my regally beautiful & intelligent GSD!!

What attracted me to the breed?.....

I was born into a family of GSD lovers. We ALWAYS had at least one while growing up.
The first GSD I remember is Brutus. He was brought home by my mother when I was a baby, with one brother 11mos older than I.
My mother worked as a dispatcher at the local police dept. when one night a couple of the officers brought in their working dog. They said he had "...gone bad..." They chained the big male inside one of the cells with logging chains.
It was decided the dog would most likely be put down. My mother stepped in and eventually convinced them to let her take him home (uhhh, gee thanks mom! O_o).
Brutus ended up being the most wonderful family pet that protected my brother and I from everyone, even our mom. She couldn't ever spank us while he was present. lol
Anyway, Brutus was the first of many GSD's in my life since. The personality of a GSD fits with my own perfectly. I'm an outdoorsy type and they're a breed that is active and outdoorsy too. Besides loving their personality, intelligence, loyalty, etc. to watch a GSD move is truly watching poetry in motion. They are magnificent creatures to watch, always causing me to stop and stare in absolute awe.

my fiancÚ, Dalton, had recently lost a dog and I had always wanted a dog so we decided to get one and I saw an ad for a black and silver male pup and we went to get him and he was just a sweet fluff ball. But I don't think I'll ever own anything else. They're beautiful, powerful, smart, loyal, fierce, and most of all super hilarious. At least Gus is. He makes me laugh everyday, no matter what. I wouldn't trade him for the world.

I have always been attracted to smart animals that are willing to learn. Screw little dogs that yap yap yap all the time.

Cookie is 4 months old, he lets us know when he wants to go outside to the washroom, plays catch, can walk off leash, knows to sit, stay and lay down on command. Cookie is an amazing dog for his age.

Any dog that the government uses to attack, defend, or search has to be a good breed right? answer, yes

Honestly, the first thing I can remember for sure that first attracted me to the GSD, is the GSD in this dog breed book. My uncle gave me the book when I was younger, 10 maybe? don't remember for sure. I remember looking through this book and reading about all of the different breeds of dogs. I have always had a dog since I was little, except for a few months at a time between dogs. I thought the GSD pictured on the cover and showcased on the page for the GSD was gorgeous and everything a dog should be. I would read the description and wish that some day I would be able to get one. I finally got Amadeus, my first GSD, in February of 2003 when I was 15 1/2, my dog had died 6 months earlier and I was looking for the classifieds for puppies. 8 week old ACK registered German Shepherds, 2 males left..... And so my love affair with the breed became a reality.
But it is really everything about the breed, the looks, the personalities, the intelligence, etc. that I love.

I grew up with Shiba Inus, and though they are wonderful they are not always the best companion IMO. I wanted a large regal dog, one who is ALWAYS willing and ready. I have two now and couldn't be happier.
