Service dogs?

Hey, so i am curently training my liver GSD to be a service dog, i was wondering if anyone else has ever known, worked with, or had a GSD as a service dog?
By the way, he is picking up on it FAST for being a stray, and then abused!
SO proud of this boy!

Elios. 2 year old light liver GSD
Toast. Hedgehog
Gizmo. Blue point, kink tailed kitten .

We raised Ranger from 7 weeks old for the Seeing Eye. They have a breeding facility and they deliver the dogs at 7 weeks. Unfortunately he was dropped from the program when he exhibited a fear of grates. He was great otherwise so it was a real bummer. Now he is ours and he is a wonderful dog. I am thinking of training him as a therapy dog.

My Hunter's littermate Scout is a service dog for a gentleman with Parkinson's disease, he excels at the work. Perfect dog for it!

The school my BIL got his guide dog from, Leader Dogs, also breeds/trains a smaller number of GSDs for their program. My BIL's guide dog is a yellow Lab though.
