This breed is known to be highly loyal, intelligent, and loving.
Created in 1899 from a combination of German herding dogs the German Shepard was originally bred for herding sheep. They have since taken on many important jobs such as guide dogs for the disabled, police dogs, drug dogs, guard dogs, as well as search & rescue. The high intelligence and people-pleasing nature of the German Shepard make them easy to train.
