Temperament

The well-bred German Shepherd Dog is stable, sensible, intelligent, quick to learn, loyal and protective of his home and property. Unfortunately, because of the breed’s popularity, the German Shepherd Dog has been exploited by some unscrupulous and irresponsible breeders. It’s a good idea to be extremely selective when choosing a puppy.

German Shepherd Dogs may be black-and-tan, varying shades of sable or all black.
