German Sheperd

German shepherds have long gotten bad press.  You see them snarling in Nazi movies or snapping at rioters on the TV news.  When the dogs are wearing muzzles, you assume their menacing teeth are ready to sink into flesh.  That fearsome image may have been in the minds of people who have crossed the street to avoid me when I’ve been out walking one of the six German shepherds I’ve had as pets over the years.
