My 7 month old male GSD is VERY outgoing with people and other dogs.
At this point, he acts more like a Lab than a Shepherd!
I allow him to sniff and meet other dogs I KNOW are friendly. But as we all know, many are not! So I keep him away from those.
My last Shepherd was not dog friendly and was OK with people.
I wonder if he will become more "aloof" or if this is the way he will be?
My dog is alot like this and she is 10.5 months...I sometimes think that she is watching and learning from my golden. The golden can be more reactive then the GSD sometimes. As mine has gotten older, she can take or leave strangers, but if she knows someone, then they better be ready for kisses. She especially loves kids
