German Shepherd

Canis lupus familiaris


The German Shepherdis a breed of large-sized dog that originated in Germany. German Shepherds are a relatively new breed of dog, with their origin dating to 1899. As part of the Herding Group, German Shepherds are working dogs developed originally for herding and guarding sheep. Since that time, however, because of their strength, intelligence, trainability, and obedience, German Shepherds around the world are often the preferred breed for many types of work, including search-and-rescue, police and military roles, and even acting. German Shepherds currently account for 4.6% of all dogs registered with the American Kennel Club.
