20 Pictures of Loyal German Shepherds
- By: Emily Hildebrand
German Shepherds are large dogs that originated in Germany in 1899, being bred for the specific purpose of sheep herding. Because of this, they are fierce and energetic, but always eager to please and a very loyal breed. They make great family pets because they are so loving, but willing to protect the ones they love whenever they are needed. This is why German Shepherds are commonly used for working dogs as well. Even though they are most commonly seen with their black and tan coats, they come in a range of colors, including solid white and jet black.
