All About German Shepherds
German Shepherds are bold, eager, alert and cheerful. They are known
for their courage and loyalty. They are serious and almost human like
with their intelligence. They love people and should not be isolated for
long periods of time.
With their roots in guarding German Shepherds have a strong protective instinct and
are naturally territorial. German Shepherd puppies need to be trained and controlled firmly and
German Shepherds keenness to learn and intelligence, makes them ideal as working
dogs and they are regularly seen in the military and as guide dogs for
the blind, hearing dogs for the deaf and helping dogs for the disabled.
