Alsatian, German Shepherd, GSD,
Country of Origin:
The German Shepherd dog is descended
from old farm and herding dogs. A fairly new breed, it was developed in the
early part of the twentieth century for herding and police and military use. It
has been used as a guide and search and rescue dog and is a popular companion in
the U.S. and elsewhere.
The German Shepherd is a large,
muscular dog that is longer than it is tall. It has large prick ears; a black
nose; and dark, almond-shaped eyes. The neck is long and strong and the back
slopes to the tail. The tail is set low and curves up slightly. The double coat
has a short, dense undercoat and a straight, full outer coat, which may be
slightly wavy. There is longer hair at the neck and thighs. The coat comes in a
variety of colors, although some registries will not accept white dogs.
22 to 26 inches
60 to 140 pounds
The German Shepherd Dog is a
self-confident, even-tempered dog. It is affectionate and playful with its
friends and family but reserved with strangers, although it warms up quickly. It
is intelligent and highly trainable. The German Shepherd Dog is good with
children and most animals.
The German Shepherd Dog can adapt to
city, suburban or rural life. It does best with an active family or individual
who will provide it with ample exercise.
