The German Shepherd is one of the most popular breeds in the United States. German Shepherds are bred for their intelligence and working ability. Although they are herding dog, they are now primarily used as working dogs and are popular with law enforcement, search and rescue.They are often put to work as disability assistance dogs.
As far as dog breeds are concerned the German Shepherd is a relatively new on the scene. The breed arose in Germany in 1899 from various attempts to standardize the herding breed in the country. Early attempts to find a standard failed due to squabbling between those who were more interested in a show dog, and those who wanted to emphasize the working side of the dog. Eventually one of the proponents of the working breed (Max von Stephanitz), began his own line of dogs. The line can be directly traced to the male dog 'Horand von Grafrath' - the great grand dad of the entire breed.
The German Shepherd Dog (GSD) is perhaps best valued for its intelligence, strength, courageousness, tenacity, loyalty and ability to focus on the task in hand.
German Shepherds have a two-layer coat with a close, dense top coat and a thick undercoat. The coat can be medium or long haired, and usually ranges from red and black to tan and black, sometimes accompanied with a black mask. Rarer form forms of the breed do some in pure white and pure black.
They weigh between 49 and 88 pounds
