    All you see is that the person is avoiding YOUR dog and your entire view of the world is entirely centered on yourself because you're a narcissist, but most of those people avoid most dogs bigger than a chihuahua, or all of them. Also weird how you think it is because of the breed when you don't know if maybe they're just scared of dogs, which makes me think you purposely got that breed BECAUSE of its potential to be violent, and your dog in particular has been trained by you to be violent.

    They're one of those op dogs, thing is, sometimes the owners aren't so better not risk it.

    Im not afraid but they seem neurotic and stubborn. Ive been bit by 3 out of the 4 german shepherds ive ever been seriously around. They bark and bark and bark and their owners cant settle them or calm them. Then as soon as you turn your back to them or stop paying attention to the barking crybaby they run up to bite you, mostly in the back of the legs. Maybe its because im taller than most people their used too. Quite off though.

    GSDs are incredibly easy to ruin if you don't know what you're doing when training which is where the bad reputation is mainly coming from. Most people are absolutely unfit for this type of dog.

    the breed is notorious for being used as a police dog and other kinds of attack dog as well. many (criminals) may have had bad experiences with them, or may be wary because of this association. they're also being used for the same reason they might frighten someone: they're capable of hurting someone, very badly. i'm still more wary of pitbulls, personally. german shepherds are usually well-trained in my experience.

      the difference is german shepherds aggression is controllable because it's based on possession and confidence. they were bred to be dangerous, but directed. when someone has a GSD out it's kind of like they're walking around with a loaded rifle. a lot of people are dumb and that can be very dangerous.

      pitbulls aggression is just based on excitement so a dog that has been well behaved since it was a puppy can rip your children apart if it's unusually stressed by a birthday party. they're meant to be hyped up and then set on each other while a bunch of lowlifes bet on which one will die first. it's kind of like a brick of azidoazide azide.

    Probably because they're the #1 choice of dog for the kind of person who believes that the only real way to train a dog is by beating it, while also saying "well you never come near a strange dog of course its common sense!" to cope with how neurotic and dangerous they've made their pet.

    If you're an adult who's scared of any type of domesticated dog you're a pussy, end of. Especially shepards, they're good boys.

      Because the owner of any determines whether that dog is the goodest boye or a psychotic murderhobo with a taste for your childrens faces. And they dont know the owner. So they take a precaution. Especially concerning those dogs known to be physically capable of inflicting great harm or even death. If a Pekinese attacks your biggest problem is how to clean your shoes. A german shepherd can easily cost you a few fingers or scar you for life.

      You should stop drinking the koolaid. Maybe visit a shitbulls thread on /gif/ and then reconsider why people might not trust random dogs outright. I've personally had the displeasure of physically fighting a malinois that decided it wanted my blood. It just ripped loose of it's owner and came for me. The scars on my arm will never heal and I almost lost two fingers. The dog fortunately died because I crushed its ribcage when placing my full weight on it with my knee... It could've hit an artery and just fucking killed me there and then.
      There is literally nothing you can say that validates your full retard position against that kind of reality.

        The absolute worst dogs (shitbulls) are statistically less likely to attack to kill you than an adult human white male. Which means what happened to you was equal to being struck by lightning twice in one day.

        Then again, malinois are possibly worse than shitbulls and we don't know it yet because the culture of ownership built around them is extremely abusive, possibly for a reason.

          Yeah well first of all thats not an argument. Second, picrel. According to you there are literally millions of double daily lightning strikes I guess?
          And as I said, I can't see from a dog whether its aggressive or not. Avoiding a dog is thus warranted. And the conditions under which it becomes aggressive are chaotic. Dogs are dumb and poorly raised dogs are psychotic. I can't determine the real danger any dog poses, so I have to default to general precaution which costs me basically no investment to avoid a real and serious risk.
          Avoiding dangerous white men is easy btw.
          >Dont be in proximity to methheads
          >Dont argue with drunk rednecks
          Thats like 99.9% of risks avoided right there. Again, small precautions for massive gains in avoiding risk.

          Dogs don't attack for no reason except pitbulls. More than likely it was your fault for appearing weird, weak or provoking an attack.

          I obviously don't care if it's "for a reason". Any psychotic piece of shit dog can contrive a reason in it's inbred, pea sized brain. And people are really good at raising dogs wrong. A reason could be I'm too close walking along the sidewalk. I scratched my nose in a "threatening" way. I could be in "his" territory. I can smell of another dog. It can have psychological issues, or frustrations from it's home situation. In my case, the dog just fucking charged me from 20 meters away while I was walking home from the bus stop.
          Point is, there is literally 0 reason to assume a dog won't contrive a reason to attack, and the fault for a dog being willing and able to attack lies with the owner. Not the victim. So I am aware of dogs, I keep my distance from dogs I don't know and I don't assume whoever is handling the dog knows or cares about what he's doing. So instead of saying I did whatever wrong... Poorly raised dogs just fucking suck ass and people are right to distrust dogs they don't know.

            Dog owners just always need to have something to bitch about. Look at how super offended they are just because somebody avoided their dog. They are all insane. They are as bad as the retards who think you went for a walk on a trail to listen to them monologue about something stupid. None of these people have any concept that we exist for any reason other than to cater to their whims.

              The irony of this histrionic post, reading your own bitchiness into things where there is none. Gb2r.

              Remember this the next time you feel compelled to cry about how women avoid white men and want to pretend you have no idea why.

              And going lesbo or to a significantly higher murder rate? Lmfao

        Are you a woman?

        How the fuck is a man meant to be killed by a single dog.

        Only women and children can be killed by a single dog.
