Dogs 101: German Shepherd Facts Information Most Popular Dog Breeds – Animal Facts

The more boys I meet the more I love my dog. Carrie Underwood (singer) Welcome to Animal Facts. Today we examine the Smart, Confident and
Courageous German Sheppard Dog. The German Shepherd Dog is one of the few
breeds who official name includes the word “dog.” Why? So people knew when you are talking about
a German shepherd human, who tends the livestock, or the dog helping him. The German Sheppard Dog is the second most
registered dog breed in the United States. This is most likely due to the breeds diversity
– they are popular as family, guard, performance, police, military, and service dogs. There isn’t much this dog can’t do.  Max von Stephanitz is considered the “father
of the German Sheppard Dog breed.” In 1889 he started to standardize a breed
of shepherd dogs after seeing a “medium-sized yellow-and-gray wolf-like dog” that caught
his attention Synonymous with intelligence, German shepherds
dogs were ranked third when AKC judges rated over 100 breeds on intelligence. They’re easy to train, learning many simple
commands in as little as five repetitions. World War 1 helped to increase the breed’s
popularity in the United States. American Soldiers saw what the dogs were capable
of and many brought dogs back home. Famous Hollywood dog Rin-Tin-Tin is said to
be “America’s First Rescue Dog.” He was awarded the American Humane Association’s
first Legacy Award in 2011. He also has a star on the Hollywood Walk of
Fame. Before there was Rin-Tin-Tin, there was Strongheart. He was one of the earliest canine stars. He starred in six movies and also has a star
on the Walk of Fame. In 1917 the AKC removed the word “German”
in front of the breed’s name. It remained that way until 1930, when members
of the club voted to change it back.  In 1929, Mrs. Harrison Eustis founds “The
Seeing Eye” to train German Sheppard dogs for use as guides for the blind. The breed is popular worldwide. There are hundreds of thousands of fanciers
in 78 countries. There are a quarter million purebreds in Germany
alone,. There is even a World Union of German Shepherd
Dog Clubs.

    Why have the Yanks totally ruined their German Shepherd Dogs by breeding them with a sloping back? This is the reason why the GSD breed are so prone to hip dysplasia. This is a prime example of typical human vanity at the cost to the poor dog. Just look at Rin Tin Tin at 01' 34'' to see how a proper and healthy GSD should look like.
