German Sheprador History

The German Sheperd is a popular medium to large sized breed of working and herding dog that originated in Germany. The German Shepherd is one of the four most popular breeds of domesticated dogs in the world, and is distinguished by its dense and water-resistant coat, its long snout, and its intelligent and intellegent nature. The German Shepherd is a descendant of the drover’s and shepherd’s dogs of the Eurasian steppes of Central and Eastern Europe. The ancestors of the German Shepherd were known in German as “Shepherdessenhund”, which means “shepherds’ dogs of the shepherds”. The style of the German Shepherd was codified in 1899 by Captain Max von Stephanitz, who standardized the breed and established the standard measurements. In 1925, the German Shepherd was recognized as a distinct breed by the American Kennel Club, and the first standard for the breed was drawn up. In 1929, the German Shepherd became the official police dog of Berlin.
