Axel



This is Chris's dog being his goofy self. He's the only German Shepherd that is allowed to come anywhere near me.

What a sweetheart - is he waiting for a bellyrub? He's got an expectant look on his face!

He's cute because he's pretty dumb. Most German Shepherds attack, he rolls over for a belly rub or tries to jump in your lap.

Not attacking innocent folks is usually good! I'm terrified of German Shepherds (as well as Saint Bernards, Rottweilers, Pit Bulls, and Great Danes - probably most of all) but he looks SO cute. I'm just glad he's not a greyhound. :P

German Shepards arent violent dogs. My mom trained them for many years so they were always around and not once was I afraid. They are just loyal and defensive. Even when police dogs are growling and snarling they usually arent actually angry. I've seen dogs my mom trained go from vicous killing machines to puppies at a simple command. Its just what they are taught to do.

I have to agree about Axel though. He really inst the sharpest knife in the drawer.

But sometimes dogs like that don't realize the difference between a real attack and playing around.

Sometimes fear is based on facts known about something (like pit bulls...my cousin's stepson, at 3, was killed by one, in a horrible and way-too-graphic-for-this-comment manner) and sometimes you're just afraid and don't know why. German Shepherds just look scary (but not Axel, I agree) and I'm sure there are some that attack. I'm not afraid of specific dogs that have proven themselves to be nice. :)
