x2, never once had a problem with them around my kids.... on the the other hand I have had issues with people coming up to my kids with them around. The smartest protection dog out there. They understand there purpose. They also develope a very close bond with the family and are very protective. I think it is extremely inportant to get GSD's as a puppy. Thats is key for bonding, trust, and safety.You won't find a better dog around kids than a GS.
We have had them for 30+ years.
Just messing with ya,I have a Amstaff and everyone likes to say stuff like this in the Pitbull thread.
