German Shepherd Traits
By Fran Black
If you are considering German Shepherd
puppies for sale, you should know the benefits of having
your dog professionally trained.
Max von Stephanitz stabilized the German
Shepherd dog breed, a breed that would become one of
the most valued dogs in history.
The German shepherd dog is very intelligent,
easy to train, powerful and elegant.
The German shepherd dog is medium to large
size with erect pointed ears, a long body, and a weather
resistant coat. A thick stiff outer coat covered by
a softer inner one makes the German shepherd readily
able to withstand extreme climates. German Shepherd's
range in color from black and tan to black and red,
while the white German Shepherd is being seen more often
these days. White German Shepherds are known as loyal
family dogs and fearless guardians of the home that
excel in obedience work.
Originally trained as a herder, the breed
is still used in this capacity in some areas. The German
Shepherd also excels in many other dog activities including
tracking, obedience, agility, fly ball, and ring sport.
Through it all, the German Shepherd is also a wonderful
family member and a dog of distinction.
To this day, the German Shepherd Dog is
considered one of the most, if not the most, intelligent
and versatile breeds in existence. The German Shepherd
is exceptionally trainable and works well as a police,
guide, search, rescue dog. Though relatively calm and
quiet indoors, the German Shepherd needs lots of outdoor
exercise to maintain condition. German Shepherds require
some active exercise each day and should not really
be confined to a small yard. German shepherds do not
require any special care.
