I still have my perceptions lol. I'll let you know next year when I've had my girl for some time.

Currently I think they are loyal, intelligent, versatile dogs. With a willingness to please their owner.

One thing that made me want one more is they are one of many misunderstood breeds. And my mom is terrified of them. Hehe.

I thought German Shepherds were impressive looking dogs. Wanted to get one with a good temperament. I've never been afraid of this or any other dog breed. Dogs are just dogs to me.

I thought they were beautiful, intelligent, and strong. I have always wanted one (I love a good challenge) and now that I have one, I wouldn't trade her for the world.

There is no other dog, beautiful, loyal, graceful, protective, intelligent. Had them my entire life, starting at age 9-10.

They are such lovely dogs that I completely forgot about those toy breeds that I used to think were very cute. Now I think no dog can be cuter than a gsd. They never fail to put a smile on our faces.

I was born into a house that had a GSD mix that was adopted from the SPCA. When she passed away (RIP Trudy), my uncle bought us a GSD puppy.... I was in kindergarten or 1st grade at the time. So I've always had a GSD in the house. It's just natural to me I guess.
My boyfriend on the other hand had only one dog before he met me, a husky/ chow chow mix. He had a fear of dogs growing up. So when he met me and found out I had a GSD he was intimidated. Elsa was 12 at the time and very laid back so when they met it went well. Now we have the two of them and he will mention from time to time that he is glad they are on his side. The same went for my brother's dog that he left with us, a lab/ rottie mix. We were lucky he was a sweet dog, he was large enough to do damage if he wanted to.

I hear they're super loyal and nice. I've seen my uncle's GSD but he wasn't properly cared for.

Just a normal average pet owner, not one to put a dog in the yard, but I'm not into revolving my life around a dog either. So I didn't really think about it much.
Then years later I wanted my own dog and looked into different breeds and saw people like me keeping them as pets. I just kept trying to learn more, but wasnt sure since I had no intention of showing or joining a training club. Tried to meet a few and just really was impressed by everything about them. Haven't looked back!
My uncle bought it to show off..
