German Shepherd Information
The second most popular dog in the United States, the German Shepherd is a true dog lover’s dog. The breed is easily recognizable by its strong, muscular body; alert, pointy ears; thick, multi-colored coat; and noble, hard-working personality.
Originating from the farm and sheep-dogs of the past, the German Shepherd gained popularity during World War I, gaining recognition for its courage, loyalty and intelligence. As a pet, this dog is great with children and other pups and does well with training. Just be sure he gets regular exercise and stimulation, and you’ll have the perfect pooch.
