This site is designed to fill a void. While searching for an informative website on the German Shepherd, I came up short.
This was amazing. Surely there must be hundreds of websites on the AKC's 3rd most popular breed? I scoured the internet seeking information, but the lack of resources amazed me. I had to hunt through several different sites to get the information I was seeking.
Well, it wasn't true then. And it's not true now.
German-Shepherd-Lore.com was born.

Q: Can you help me find a German Shepherd dog or puppy?
A: If you are new to German Shepherds, before you jump into this big decision (please never bring home a puppy or dog on impulse) make sure you are ready to care for this high energy working breed.
Try a German Shepherd rescue group. Your local shelter is also a great resource.
Here are some tips for finding a reputable breeder.
Q: I need to find a new home for my German Shepherd, can you help?
A: I am unable to place your GSD or GSD mix in a new home. Please consult a German Shepherd Rescue Group in your area.
I also have a courtesy listing page that may be able to help: German Shepherd Adoption.
Q: What I have a German Shepherd health question?
A: Please know that I am not a vet. If you have a health related question that is NOT an emergency, please use the Ask a Vet service found at Dog Health Care Questions.
They are fast, affordable and thorough.

Q: Do you need help with Search Engine Optimization?
I am often asked why I chose the word lore for my domain name. The short answer is that the other domains I checked were taken.
But, it was a blessing in disguise. Lore adds a bit of intrigue. And its synonym is wisdom.
Legend and lore seem to be used interchangeably. And folk lore is a common word combination.
But the definition of lore is the body of knowledge, esp. of a traditional, anecdotal, or popular nature, on a particular subject.
So, it was a win-win. Intrigue + wisdom = lore.
