Hi, My 16 year old daughter fell in love with my friends german sheppard and she very much wants one of her own. My friend says they are great family dogs and get along with other pets. We are expierenced dog owners, and train as well as show our english bulldogs. However, I have heard from other people that german sheppards can turn on their owners or be unpredictable. I feel that training and breeding have a lot to do with aggression, but I wanted to get the opinion of other german sheppard owners. We have plenty of room and time for one, but I have a 2 year old and we also have a chihuahua and some cats, as well as horses. I would apreciate any feedback.
