Spotlight on: The German Shepherd Breed

The German Shepherd dog is one of Britain’s most popular breeds, and with good reason. They have a long and noble history – from their creation by a German cavalry captain, Max von Stephanitz in the 1800s as herding dogs through to the first world war, when 48,000 were enlisted in the German Army.

Probably one of the most popular breeds of dog worldwide, they’re familiar to most of us not simply as pets but as a working breed used by the police and army, although the Kennel Club of Great Britain still classifies the German Shepherd as a pastoral breed.
