What Do U Prefer: Short of Long-Haired GSDs?

I was wondering what kind of GSD type you prefer:

short-haired? or long-haired?

I'm normally very opininated on these types of things, but I really like both. Short haired ones look sleek and chiseled while the long haired ones are so adorable and huggable

I like both. My current one is short haired, but I've seen some long haired ones and they're quite beautiful dogs.

I like both, but I prefer short haired to long haired, but the option for it doesn't really represent my opinion of why I do since I could care less about shedding.

Short stock coats shed just as much as the long coats. I like them both, but the short stock coat is not a magnet to mud, leaves, burs, bugs, etc! And they dry quickly as well....so really for maintenance I like the shorter coat.

I love them both but ended up with a long haired that I think is gorgeous. The color, coat, size really wasn't an issue for me I just wanted the temperament that suited me best and Stosh couldn't have been a better pick. But I have to admit that I love his love hair and fuzzy ears

trust me, a plush or short coat can leave as much fur around your house as any other!

I like the shorter coat - but then, I like short haired cats too.

Appreciate both, just not for me.

I prefer stock coated GSDs but I also have a mutt with a coat like a longcoat GSD except MORE undercoat.

They all shed differently. My old girl didn't shed terribly much compared to others. Twice a year more than the rest, but overall, not too bad, but definitely always shedding some. She was a stock coat.

I know have a stock sable bitch and she sheds 5 times as much as my old girl did and it gets rediculous when she's about to come into heat. I also have a long coated bitch. She doesn't shed as much, probably about the same as my older girl did, but you don't notice it as much because it needs to be brushed out. It doesn't just fall out with a good petting like the others.

Overall I prefer stock coat just because of the ease of care. There isn't a ton of difference between the ones i've had and the one long coat i've had though the long coat doesn't have a terribly long coat either compared to some i've seen.
