4 Things You Didn't Know About German Shepherd Dogs


German Shepherds are one of the most recognizable dogs in the world. Prized for their intelligence and loyalty, they're a popular and beloved breed. If you're brand new to the world of German Shepherds, there are more lovable things about them you might not know. If you're looking to adopt, here are four interesting traits you might see in your German Shepherd.

They Love Windows
As soon as you realize your German Shepherd is the prince, or princess, of your castle, you'll see that they enjoy surveying all they own. This includes keeping an eye on things happening outside your window. German Shepherds need to know exactly what's going on with passersby, the mailman and any feline that dares to set a paw on your property. You don't need to discourage this behavior as they're just doing their job, so enjoy the added security.


They Want To Be Trained
When you select one of many German Shepherd puppies Miami for adoption, sign them up for training. German Shepherds are highly intelligent and should always be professionally-trained whenever possible. Even after they've graduated from obedience school, keep teaching them new tricks. This breed needs mental stimulation and will become depressed if they don't get it. They want to be trained and are anxious to make you proud.
They'll Herd Your Family
German Shepherds are herding class dogs and they love to complete tasks. If you notice your German Shepherd is circling you and your family, it's because they're herding you! Your pet wants to keep you in line so everyone is safe and together. If you're walking behind them, you'll also notice a German Shepherd looking back for you so they know exactly where everyone is.

They Come in Different Colors
Most people recognize German Shepherds by their black and tan colors, but they also exist in black and red, pure black, sable and white. There's also the very rare blue German Shepherd which is really a bluish-gray color and simply stunning. These dogs have two different hair lengths; the classic short and the long-haired. Whichever you own, they both love and need to be brushed every day.
Endearing Qualities
Any dog you adopt will have its own irresistible personality. German Shepherds in general possess noble qualities such as loyalty and intelligence. However, adorable little quirks like staring out windows and herding the family will soon become endearing characteristics that you love most about your dog.
