Affinity for the German Shepherd
Beautiful, noble and intelligent, the German Shepherd dog plays a variety of different roles. From service dog to police K-9... to loyal companion and family protector.
These magnificent animals are an integral part of our society.
Breed founder, Captain Max von Stephanitz, set about looking for a dog that existed only in his mind:
"...firm of nerve, attentiveness, unshockability, tractability, watchfulness, reliability, and incorruptibility together with courage, fighting tenacity and hardness."
At a dog show, he discovered a clever and tenacious wolf-like canine and knew he was onto something. His dream was soon realized and the amazingly versatile GSD became reality.
