I need to know why Animal Control personnel are so oblivious when they say something like that. I hear stories all the time and the report saying that the dog was aggressive when they tried to take him out of the home. Do they not know that a GSD, or any protective breed for that matter is going to defend their territory against a strainger? Do they feel that it will make the community feel safer knowing that they put an "aggressive" dog down? I just don't understand. I feel that there should be a behaviorist consult with dogs that have bit people to understand why the incident occured, but to call all dogs "aggressive" when they defend their territory is just moronic to me.
