    where did I contradict you??? I said...I KNOW the breed...do you???

    and WHERE did I not say things to you in a "nice" way??? I told you the facts of my breed...the fact that the tentrfield is very much like the SBT...the fact that is SBT's shows aggression towards humans they MUST be destroyed! That the owner of these SBT's you know might be more to blame than the dogs in question due to their ignorance regarding the breed.

    I don't think there is a breed of dog I don't like. More that I prefer one breed over another. I had cattle dogs until I was 35 and an Australian Siky Terrier. Got a German Shepherd two years later and then was given the Ralph (Staffy) as a companion dog for the German Shepherd. I had never considered a Staffy back then, thought they were a little fuggly, but ten years on I would not swap my Staffy for any other breed. I think he is such a beautiful dog, both in nature and looks. It took a little time in the beginning, but at some stage I came to love the little fellow!

    [QUOTE=puggerup;47485]I should point out that although I did mention 3 breeds which I don't particularly like.. I love all creatures great and small (other than snakes and insects LOL ) and I just meant that they aren't breeds which I would choose to adopt... but I have also met some lovely JRT's and Fox Terriers and Beagles

    I also wonder if this thread was deliberately started to cause more rifts between members.[/

    It is ONLY the members themselves that can cause rifts between each other. Quite point blank, that is happening in lots of threads, even those where Disney's presence is missing.

    If we all behaved ourselves and tried to communicate better, this would not be happening.

    Peter and Pugger, German Shepherds have long been the love of my life, yet I can fully understand how you feel. I seem to be hearing of a lot more ppl being bitten by them, and they are ppl I know personally or know of.
    It is sad. And dangerous.
    I know that all breeding is done to better the breed, but in all honesty I am starting to feel doubtful and a bit concerned about where the breed is going in the future.

    A lot are trained to bite and attack.. are they bred for that also?

    It is sad.. I actually had one growing up, but he was like no other GSD.. I guess because I "knew" him.

    Our bad experiences give us our opinions for dogs we like or not in the future. I personally think that is perfectly normal human behaviour.

    Professional guard dogs are certainly trained to attack, but ON COMMAND. Anything else is unacceptable in my eyes, but then that goes for any breed.

    Originally they were bred (not bread! Pokes tongue at pugger again ) for herding, believe it or not, and of course when you think about that, yes, that involves protecting.

    Yes, the ones we know and love are always an exception to the rule.

    I had a german sheperd x when i was about 6 that had to be put down due to unprovoked biting, it broke my heart. (not that this is realted to my dislike of the breed)
    Alot of German Sheperds have been bred over the years for security purposes, i wonder if that has anything to do with it.
    For me it just comes from bad experience.
