German Shepherds for sale

It was in 1899 that Von Stephanitz was recognised as standardising this breeds desirable traits which considered their appearance, strength, intelligence and abilities. The German Shepherd was originally used in Germany as a working dog for herding sheep. Due to anti-German sentiment at the end of World War 1 it was decided to rename this breed Alsatian, so as not to harm its reputation. The name Alsatian remained until 1977, when it again adopted its original name, the German Shepherd Dog.

They are very trainable dogs, being quick to learn new commands and undertake new tasks, they have been ranked the third most intelligent of breeds, just behind Border Collies and Poodles. With their intelligence and trainability and their keen sense of smell they have become firm favourites as search and rescue dogs as well as being useful in narcotic and mine detection. They have a fearless commitment to duty and are well known for their loyalty. They are also used as guide dogs and continue to be good sheep dogs.

German Shepherds are large dogs weighing 22 to 44 kilograms. Their height is approx 25 inches. They are most commonly tan and black or red and black in colour, all black and sable are also acceptable colours.

Unfortunately German Shepherds have a number of common ailments due to inbreeding such as hip and elbow dysplasia which can lead for arthritis, and monorchidism. Spinal Stenosis is another common and troublesome condition. They are also prone to Von Willebrand Disease which affects the blood clotting time and can result in spontaneous bleeding.

They can be expected to live approx 10 years
