German Shepherds are hailed as the world’s leading police, guard and military dog. They are consistently one of the AKC's most popular breeds. The breed has a distinct personality marked by direct and fearless, but not hostile, expression, self-confidence and a certain aloofness that does not lend itself to immediate and indiscriminate friendships. The German Shepherd is poised, but when the occasion demands, eager and alert; both fit and willing to serve in its capacity as companion, watchdog, blind leader, herding dog, or guardian, whichever the circumstances may demand. Energetic and fun-loving, the breed is very fond of children once a relationship is established. He is a loyal family pet and a good guard dog. He requires regular exercise and grooming. Here is the perfect gift for you or any German Shepherd lover.
