They have outstanding characteristics, and excel in almost anything they do. This breed is well known and among the 10 most popular breeds in the U.S. But, what makes them so popular? To begin with, their skills extend beyond the home. They are used in law enforcement, serving with police and even the military. They also help with special needs. For example: With those who are handicapped and require constant attention. However, their skills do not end there. Does the name Rin-Tin-Tin ring a bell? He was quite famous and appeared in many movies and shows. He was so popular he received hundreds of fan letters, sometimes thousands per week! And after the World Trade Center disaster, faithful German shepherd dogs risked their lives to comfort rescue workers and help find those who were missing. German shepherds are also excellent watchdogs. Their alert and often suspicious nature, can serve to protect both you and your family from strangers. However, this aspect of their personality may not appeal to you, if you are looking for a more guest friendly dog. This breed has a high energy level. Originally when this dog was first bred, it was for working purposes. The idea was to help herd flocks, get them into groups and so on. This all day task helped to shape a strong and high energy dog that requires a lot of activities to keep their attention. It is important to take note of this part of their personality. Why? Well, if they do not get the attention they need their boredom (even frustration) will shine through, with lots of barking and chewing. Depending on how loud it gets, it may drive you up the wall! Despite this aspect of their personality, there is no doubt German Shepherds are amazing dogs, and a wonderful asset to any home. And with proper training and loving attention, they will stand by you through thick and thin. Not a bad description to add to the list of… man’s best friend!
