This week I will be talking about the German Shepherd. These are larger dogs, about 1-2 feet at the shoulder and 75-95 pounds. German Shepherds lifespan is about 10 to 14 years. They are among the top 10 most popular dog breeds in the United States, and are well known for sniffing out illegal substances, serving in the military, leading the blind, and chasing down criminals. German Shepherds need a lot of activity and exercise or they will express their boredom with chewing or barking.
