The Alsatian, more commonly known as the German Shepherd Dog, is a large-sized breed that is renowned for its exceptional intelligence and trainability. The Shepherd, being both muscular and fast, is often employed by police agencies to aid officers in the line of duty. And while the Alsatian is perfectly suited as a guard dog, it is also great with children. The color of the German Shepherds coat ranges from all black to black and tan, with notes of red and silver.
