  • Courageous, intelligent and loyal to a fault, the German Shepherd is considered by many to be the pinnacle of canine evolution. Whether sniffing for drugs or a heart attack, there is no better working companion than the German Shepherd.

    As the name implies, German Shepherds are medium-large dogs initially bred to herd sheep in pre-World War I Europe. Since then, the intelligent and remarkably capable breed has acquired an extensive resume.

    Renowned for their loyal demeanor and trainability, German Shepherds have seen service everywhere from the beaches of Normandy to the daycare playground. From watchdogs to lap dogs, German Shepherds are the perfect canine companion.
