  • I have one haha :D that means no :P they are so good, that i don't bother to get home alarms anymore. i just set him free at night.
  • I know some of them are larger than me, but no, I'm not scared of them. They're so nice to look at! They may be big dogs, but they act like puppies when their owners play with them. Very funny! :)
  • I am not when I'm not doing anything I shouldn't be doing. Most of them are trained and protective. So, just be calm and have good intentions. I've never been bitten by one.
  • im not scared of them at all. Unless like one time i saw a german shepherd come out of a dark little street with his owner i thought it was a wolf or something lol. But i love them, they r so smart and beautiful :)
  • Well, when I was a child, one ran after me barking, and he had huge teeth, he growled and jumped! I near died of fright, I did.. He was tied to a tree by a very long chain that I didn't see. He just missed me, and I've been terrified of all dogs ever since.
  • I truly think they are some of the most beautiful dogs alive, but I was bitten by one when I was about ten. The dog was moody and unpredictable, though well trained. He had toys hidden everywhere around his home and yard. He would bite anyone he thought was heading toward one of his toys, and you couldn't go anywhere around that place without heading toward one of his toys. When he bit me, his owners refused to believe that I hadn't done anything to him. The next years they had a baby, and when the baby was three, the dog took his face off.
  • No way!!!!!!!! German Shepherds seem to have this naturally pleasing, helpful disposition. They are troopers - smart, helpful, kind, and oftentimes very useful to society. A truly gorgeous breed. I understand a German Shepherd is *capable* of being aggressive. This is true of any animal. As for the entire breed, I've seen nothing but beauty.
  • I'm not. Most are trained and wouldn't bite me unless I provoked them somehow.
  • I am not afraid of any domesticated dog on the planet, unless it has been trained to attack. I have an affinity with dogs, and they can sense that I am "alpha".
  • Nope. My first dog was a German Sheperd and I loved that baby girl so much. :)
  • I was never scared of any dog until one day while I had my little dog out in our backyard a German shepard came from behind the barn barking and growling at us.He was frothing at the mouth so I thought he might have had rabies. Everytime I moved a muscle he lunged at us.I was so afraid. I keep taking baby steps backwards till I was almost at my back door.Then I made a run for it with him on my heels. I had just got the door closed behind me and he threw himself against the door.Ten minutes later he was still outside barking. At one point he stood on his hind legs to look in the window.I was still shaken hours later.Most German Shepards are kind loving dogs so I don't dislike the breed because of that incident. I am just a little nervous of free roaming dogs.
  • Not at all, I love GSDs ( but I can't handle the hair). I'm not afraid of dogs, with the one and only exception of rotties. I'm rather phobic about them, our neighbors had one growing up that would get through the fence and come after me (this happened quite a few times) and ever since I have just been terrified of them.
  • ROTF, NO!!!!!! Because I have one. The German shepherd is, at heart, a friendly dog, but it will always want to make sure strangers have a right to enter its home before admittance is granted. Those who appear not to have entry rights are challenged by a formidable protector. Looks alone make the German shepherd an imposing foe -- males usually stand 24 - 26 inches at the shoulder, and females are only 2 inches smaller. Add strong bone, great body capacity and a head that can assume a challenging expression when necessary, and you have one of the best security systems known to humans. The German shepherd is a happy-go-lucky family member ready to play games, go hiking, take a swim or, on the other hand, sit quietly by its master's side while he or she reads a book or listens to music. Indeed, few dogs are more intelligent or trainable than the well-bred German shepherd.
  • I love German Shepherds. They are powerful, handsome looking animals. I have an Akita. If I didn't have an Akita, a German Shepherd would be my second choice.
  • the AUSTRIAN sheppards are scary they can bite your whole ass- pomona pd
  • No...I just aint.
  • no, my favorite dogs ever. I am scared of pits and rotties.
  • I'm not afraid of any breed of dog. They are only as dangerous as their owners are weak leaders and owners. I've known many and had a dog that was half GSD and Lab. I think that they have a few problems as far as health and bad breeding through the years, but as a whole, I think they are fine using dogs.
  • No, not since i read The Call of the Wild.
  • No, love them..used to have one..:)
  • I cant help it, heres another one.
  • NOT AT ALL! I have had 2 Sheperds, you get exactly what you give with them. You won't find a more loyal or intellegent breed. You have to understand what they need and nurture those needs. I think they are beautiful and the best friend you could ever have.
  • I love 'em, and love that dog of yours too. I can't explain why I'm not scared of them. I just don't know.
  • I am not afraid of one dog. I am fearful of two...two can kill you.
  • Nope, My first dog was one. His name was Duke, naturally being a little kid and not knowing that dookie is slang for poop that's what I called him. Although being as how he sopmetimes pooped in the house that was an oddly appropriate name for him.
  • Not at all. I am a strong believer that there is no set breed that is always going to be aggressive, its the handling of the dog from birth-death that will make the dog aggressive in certain situations. I don't think I have ever looked at a particular breed of dog and thought 'Thats a _____, better stay away, its aggressive' I own a rottweiler puppy and know many German shepards that are fantastic loyal dogs also. If they didn't have so much hair I would own one.
  • With eyes upraised, his master's look to scan The joy, the solace, the aid of man The rich man's guardian, the poor man's friend The only creature faithful to the end. . . I had a Shepherd for 13 years. One of the worst days in my life was when I had to put him down.
  • Have a look at my avatar. her name is Maisie. We lost her quite recently to cancer when she was just over six years old. How can you be fearful of such a beautiful creature? I understand where the fear comes from though - dogs can inflict terrible injuries with those teeth. Like children, dogs can be brought up to behave 'badly', and therein lies the tale when someone gets attacked and bitten. GSD's are SO brainy and not naturally 'savage' as some might claim. Many years ago I had a GSD bitch, who had pups, and they were housed out in the shed in the day, with mum able to come and go as she pleased. Someone left the back gate open and Heidi was able to approach the paper-boy as he came to deliver a paper to our door. I saw this happening through the window and felt alarmed that she would regard him as a threat to her babies - and sure enough I saw her advancing swiftly toward him - and then I saw her jump at him. Horrified I dashed to the front door, fearing he had been harmed, but no; all she had done was to gently grip his arm and then release it, just to tell him, 'don't come any nearer' each time he moved. He had got the message by the time I arrived and was not in the least hurt, just startled, and standing stockstill. Wonderful wonderful dogs.
  • I'm not irrationally scared of German Shepherds, but having grown up with them, I have a healthy respect.
  • No I love German Shepherds.
  • No, I am not but German Shepherds are often listed amoung the three most dominate dog breeds. I have had one and it was a great dog but be aware they do like to test. +5
  • No, I'm not scared. I used to have a Sheperd and he would get beat up by the cat. He was the coolest dog....
  • Yes, I am. My experience with big dogs is limited. I have only been around one person who owned one which was exceptionally trained. This guy was a policeman and his dog was amazing. One minute the dog would be as docile as a baby. Then he would give the dog a command and the dog would become all teeth. Yikes!!!! That scared me!!!! I don't think I could own a German Sheperd. I do like to admire them from a distance.
