Yes, I feel like that too, never known why ??? Just feel very wery of them. Even more so when Emmy got attacked by one 🙁
I think the problem is that they are police dogs and the media portray police dogs generally barking and snarling or biting people. If only they also showed coverage of the very same dogs finding missing children or vulnerable people, the same breed as search and rescue and guide dogs or PAT dogs, that may help dispel some of the myths :-\
Unfortunately ignorant owners and unscrupulous breeders are common and they certainly don’t help the reputation of the breed. When you see a well socialised, well trained GSD, there are very few better sights IMO.
I am sorry you had a bad experience when your dog was attacked by a GSD, but please don’t blame the breed – blame the owner.
