The German Shepherd is a breed of medium to large-sized working dog that originates from Germany. The German spelling is 'Deutscher Sch ferhund.' The German Shepherd is a relatively new breed of dog that came into existence in 1899 and was put to work as a sheep herder. However due to their physical strength and intelligence they have become a popular choice for all lines of work: disability assistance, search and rescue, police, acting and military. It is also a popular household pet and is the second most popular breed of dog in the United States German Shepherds come in two coat varieties: short-medium and long. The long haired variety is rarer due to the fact that the long-hair gene is recessive. Their coats are most commonly tan or red with black marking on their backs and face. However there are rarer color variations such as pure white, pure black and silver blue.
