About German Shepherd
The German Shepherd, also called the Alsatian, is a gorgeous, intelligent, active breed. They are typically black and tan (though white and black dogs also exist), and may be long or short haired. Popular with the military and police for their intelligence and trainability, the German Shepherd will wow you with their physical and mental abilities. Obedience classes are very useful for German shepherds, teaching them good manners and social skills. They are most comfortable living in larger homes, with someone who will give them plenty of exercise. They can get on well with children and could be a great choice for a family pet – especially if you want to encourage your kids to spend more time outdoors!
