Today’s animal is the ever-popular German Shepherd, although British dog lovers call them Alsatians. This breed is the second most popular dog breed in the United States.
German Shepherds are brilliant, brave, and loyal. Therefore, the military and the police often use them as service dogs. Also, many dog lovers take in the German Shepherd Guide because it is a protective family pet.

Yes indeed. I have THREE.
A sublimely wonderful companion. I was blessed with a 50 percent wolf (MacKenzie timber wolf) and shepherd. He was the most loyal companion I ever had. As we all suffer the crushing blow of having to say goodbye to such a mate, I can offer this: his spirit remains very much with me, so much so that I sometimes see him out of the corner of my eye. I believe, now, that our dogs never leave us; their spirit is with us, always.
what is the first popular dog in the U.S. ?
This is a remarkable companion. I have trained a few in basic commands and find them to be very intelligent and eager to please.They are devoted to their families and patient with rambunctious children. I wish I could have half a dozen!!
