One of the most intelligent, loving, and truly majestic breeds; the German Shepherd Dog originated in 1899 at Karlsruhe, Germany due to the efforts of Captain Max von Stephanitz and others. Derived from the old breeds of herding and farm dogs, the first German Shepherd Dog exhibited in America was in 1907. Energetic and fun-loving, the breed is very fond of children once a relationship is established. A loyal family pet and a good guard dog, the ideal choice for many families.
