German Shepherds - Pictures - General Description

German Shepherds are direct and fearless, eager and alert, and are often used as working dogs. Known for their loyalty, courage, and calm confidence, they have a high learning ability. A well-bred, well-adjusted, and correctly trained German Shepherd, is for the most part generally good with other pets and excellent with children in the family. It is important to purchase your German Shepherd from a reputable breeder. These dogs should be trained and socialized from an early age, firmly and lovingly.

Von Stephanitz and other breeders produced a responsive, obedient, and handsome German Shepherd using local shepherd dogs from Wurtemberg, Thurginia, and Bavaria. In April 1899, a dog named Horan was registered as the first Deutsche Schaferhunde, which means German Shepherd Dog in English. Until 1915, both longhaired and wire-haired varieties were exhibited. Today, in most countries, only the short coat German Shepherd is recognized for show purposes.
