German Shepherds

German Shepherds were originally developed for sheep herding, but because of their many amazing characteristics—including obedience, intelligence, strength, and trainability—have since been used for many other types of work.  Now, German Shepherds are typically used in search-and-rescue missions, police work, military roles, as service dogs, and as protection dogs.  German Shepherds are loving and loyal to their families and are calm and gentle when raised and trained properly.
