Hi everyone, Iâ€™m new to the site so I wanted to thank you in advance for your help. Iâ€™ve come across an opportunity to adopt a German Sheppard from a loving family who is moving away and unfortunately canâ€™t bring their dog with them. They have told me she has a great temperament and is extremely well trained. My issue is that I have no experience with this breed and when I started to read up on them a lot of books/articles caution against them because they can be aggressive. Could those of you with extensive Sheppard experience give me the â€œreal storyâ€? What type of person makes a good match for a Sheppard, and are there any quirks or warnings I should know? Is the shedding really bad? I grew up with midsized terrier types, so there is something about the â€œlookâ€ of the Sheppard that makes me nervous, although I am always open to new things as long as I feel that I have done my homework . What are your thoughts? Thank you!
