Why have a German Shepherd Dog?
The well-bred German Shepherd Dog is respected and admired throughout the world for its versatility, intelligence, and loyalty.
Adaptability, intelligence, faithful dependability, agility, alertness and vitality are all traits that make the German Shepherd Dog a wonderful pet and loyal companion.
Founder Max von Stephanitz
The German Shepherd Dog came into being in the late 1800 in Germany. Captain Max Von Stephanitz began breeding several different kinds of German herding dogs to create one that could work under all conditions. This is why the Standard focuses on the well-bred German Shepherd Dog that has the gait to allow him to trot around the sheep (a "living" fence) all day, guard the shepherd and the sheep, and provide loyal companionship to the shepherd.
What is a Breed Standard?
Every purebred breed has a Breed Standard that is a "word picture" of the important and unique characteristics of the breed. It is the "blueprint" for the breeder and the guide for the exhibitor and knowledgeable owner.
