    As for GSDs, I HAVE had many GSDs, and I would trust them around children as well as any other dog out there, they are in no way inherently vicious dogs. And All three that I had were bred by a top schutzhund trainer, so if it was going to be in the genes it would have been there.

    All dogs are a a product of their environment, and unless there is a biological imbalance of some kind going on, I don't believe any breed is wholly bad. I'd trust my son around my friend's pit bull without a second thought, and have. I wont let my son near my other friend's lhasa apso and cocker spaniel - both which have bitten me repeatedly.

    That being said, I DO believe some breeds have certain traits associated with what they were bred for, and it's a given. If you don't want a noisy dog - don't get a beagle. If you don't want a dog that will try to herd your children - don't get an aussie or a border collie. If you don't want to deal with a lot of grooming, don't get a poodle. If you want a dog that will stay in a fence, don't get a husky
    I beg to differ! Aha, I've got a poodle now and there is little 'grooming' we actually do, save for what is typically done for ones dog. But then again... we don't give him the typical poodle cut, so he looks nothing like a poodle just a regular old mutt.

    Wow, lol I have had GSDs before, I love their personalities, more then likely I'll end up getting a mix bred one, like a lab x gsd.

    Aussies are fabulous dogs, I have one. PLAN to invest in good obedience training, and start VERY young (like, ten weeks young) and you will have one of the best dogs you can imagine. :) But make sure to keep 'em busy!

    If you decide to go in a different direction, I'll have a litter of working collie pups this fall!

    Alexischristina - haha I WAS generalizing of course! I personally love uncut poodles - I used to groom a corded poodle for years, thought he was gorgeous!
