There is no perfect dog, it depends on what you want. A german shepherd will not match other dogs in what they were bred for. If you want loyalty, yes a german shephard is one of many options. Loyalty+intelligence and trainability, that narrows it down more but they're still contending with labs and dobermans who also combine those traits while also being more affectionate.
German Shepherds would literally take a bullet for their owner(it's actually happened), dogs don't get much more affectionate than that.

Aggression + size/strength = dangerousness. For a large breed they're one of the more aggressive, and they also have one of the more powerful bites. That's why they are one of the most commonly reported.
If the dog shows no aggression to humans or other animals it's not dangerous at all. Breed profiling is a flawed concept, dogs are ultimately a product of their upbringing and environment.

Quote

Smaller breeds do tend to bite more, but it's more often out of a fear/defensive mindset due to their small size and thus people being relatively larger and more intimidating. So it's not only less lethal due to their size, but they're usually doing it more to keep someone away and not as an actual attack on the person.
You went full hodor here, the majority of dog attacks in general are because the dog feels threatened in some way and is trying to keep someone away or off their property. It comes down to whether the dog has been trained well enough to differentiate between friend and intruder. The size of the dog has very little to do with it.

I've owned many types of dogs/been around a shit ton of different breeds,  And I found german shepards to be one of the most aggressive by quite a margin.  They are extremely loyal but they do require more training than your typical dogs.

Also they shed like crazy which fucking sucks.  Which is why I like my current dog most, no shedding (except it's a bit of a pussy).  Portuguese water dog.
In my experience any working breed requires a lot of training, especially at a young age. If they aren't socialised properly while they're young you're gonna have a bad time. Although when it's done correctly they're very docile.

Ahh, nature vs nurture argument.  Most experts on the subject would say it's a combination of both.  Basic instinct can be trained out but  it is still there and a danger.

I agree, just saying that German Shepards need more training in regards to human socialization, from my own experience ofc.

The hardest dog I've ever trained was a mix breed German Shepard/Malamute.  Compared to my PWD (also considered a working dog) the training was night and day.  I'm surprised they aren't rated higher on intelligence, only my moms Boarder Collie seemed to be smarter.
I'm always right.

I like Dachsunds, but I generally prefer the long coat look, though this one smooth on wiki looks badass -
http://en.wikipedia....e_Dachshund.jpg

but they've always sounded like maybe a little too much attitude and stubborness. Then again, my dog is like that and I still love him. There's an excerpt from E.B. White that's hilarious on the wiki for them:

Quote

Being the owner of dachshunds, to me a book on dog discipline becomes a volume of inspired humor. Every sentence is a riot. Some day, if I ever get a chance, I shall write a book, or warning, on the character and temperament of the dachshund and why he can't be trained and shouldn't be. I would rather train a striped zebra to balance an Indian club than induce a dachshund to heed my slightest command. When I address Fred I never have to raise either my voice or my hopes. He even disobeys me when I instruct him in something he wants to do.

What makes them better than a husky?

Husky are badass I should've included them.
Pomeranian husky mixes are also kind of awesome.
