I grew up in farm country, and a lot of folks had farm dogs, most were GSDs. I was familiar, but no real contact until, as a kid, I was working at the Humane Society, and two sable GSDs came in and were pts because they were killing lambs. They were beautiful and I'll never forget that big old farmer crying when the animal control guy told him they were being destroyed. Never owned one, had a lot of other dogs, usually mutts, then huskies for years. Always said I could not tolerate a stupid breed, and then I finally got one and am completely floored by the intelligence and the bond between him and the family. Now I get why that old guy cried.
