I would say no, not unless you go with a fantastic, reputable, cannot-be-recommended enough breeder who understands your experience level, talks with you at length about the breed, their lines, and what to expect, and interviews you extensively to find out the best match or even if they would have a good match for you.
Some GSDs are more forgiving than others and are better for first timers. Many GSDs are true to their breed type and really aren't suited for everyone. A lot of people want a golden retriever or a lab in a GSD body and this is wrong to desire and also wrong to produce. A GSD puppy needs TONS and TONS of socialization to grow up into a well adjusted dog. They also need training from day one, but PROPER training for their age. They not only need a lot of physical exercise but they need a LOT of- if not more of- mental exercise. This means lots and lots of training or else they'll find other ways to amuse themselves.
Examine yourself and those you live with. Are you able to take charge of a situation and be a good leader to a dog? If you'd rather let the dog decide when to go out, decide when to eat, decide when to play, and decide when to bark, the GSD may not be for you as many will quickly walk all over a weak owner! Read up on firm yet fair leadership where respect flows both ways to decide if you are up to the task.
This is a breed that is great at almost everything so it is intelligent, active, and versatile. A good GSD has good protection instinct even though it may not be wanted in many places these days. There are all too many backyard breeders and people who should not be breeding, producing fearful dogs with bad aggression or GSDs that generally should not be, so be forewarned. It can be very hard to find a breeder so when we say "do your homework," take it to mean college-level thesis instead of 1st grade math. A good GSD is a wonderful thing, but the owner-dog relationship must be such that the dog looks up to the handler and not vice versa (insofar as who calls the shots). It's like Chewie taking orders from Han Solo or Spock taking orders from Kirk rather than the relationship a subordinate would have with Castro or a grumbly manager.
Are you aware of the costs of owning a GSD? They are far from cheap and unfortunately they are far from healthy.
Even the best lines have digestive issues, hip and elbow dysplasia, and other potential, devastating problems. Despite tons of tests, there is never a guarantee that two dogs of exemplary health will produce the same. Purchase price for a good pup is also not cheap- a GSD pup from good lines may run over $1000 and sometimes much more depending on the type of GSD you want. Feeding a GSD is a huge issue as well. A GSD may not have digestive problems but can still have allergies and digestive sensitivities, making food choices tough. Some of us feed a raw diet and will never look back to kibble, others dissect kibble to the finest molecule to determine what is best for their dog. There is no one food right for every GSD but often the right foods for the dog are unfriendly to the wallet!
Then there is the next conundrum- the GSD is split into several subtypes, the main ones being American showline, German showline, and European working line. The working lines are more true to the original GSD type but they can be too much for the average owner even though they do produce some wonderful, intelligent pets, though some can look fugly and jackal-like and many have TONS of energy! German showlines are often beautiful but they also often come with quite the price tag. They are almost always saddle black and red and some have more rear angulation and others have rounded backs. These dogs are required to pass several health, temperament, and ability tests before being allowed to breed to the German SV standard (same with working line but it's not so much enforced, it seems). American showlines are the dogs you see on Westminster and are known for their increased rear angulation. Some dogs are very moderate and others look like they walk "flat footed" but there are still American lines that have the brains and ability to work. Everyone has their preference, mine is completely the working line and some German showlines, most notably those that herd the original German way, tending flocks numbering in the hundreds.
From my small novel, you can probably ascertain that I do NOT recommend the GSD to just anyone. In fact, I feel it is way too popular for its own good and a lot of people who have a GSD would be better off with something else (or even nothing else). Be prepared to read your eyes out and also be prepared to spend money on a good dog (but not too much), then money on food, money on TRAINING CLASSES (start right away, seriously, don't stop at just one or two!), and money on toys, money on a camera, money on the vet, money on grooming tools, money on a crate... I did say the breed wasn't cheap, right?
Another thing to think about is activities. Your GSD is going to be smart and active, so how about agility, rally, flyball, obedience, or even schutzhund! If you have a beauty of a GSD you can even hit the show ring! Visit local clubs (if you have a schutzhund club near you, I strongly suggest visiting, even if you're not interested. They are FUN and the dogs clearly have a blast). In any case, explore the options to keep your GSD happy and healthy!
If you find a GSD is right for you, there is no better choice. If you aren't sure, we can probably point you to a more fitting breed!
