Of dogs I know this- German Shepherds are very smart and make wonderful, family pets, unless you get one from all German bloodlines, which will lead to the discovery they were bred for East German prison camp security. Anyone needing such please email me ;) “Bloody stump” is part of our family lexicon.

Not all German line GSD’s were bred for East German prison camp security.

Anyway, the Czech dogs have it all over DDR line dogs as far as that type working ability.

Uh, not all German Shepherds were in East Germany. They were already the most popular dog in the world, with many branches in Europe alone, including West.

LOL! Shepherds are my favorite breed. My sister-in-law and her husband owned a GS with all German bloodlines, trained in the Schutzhund method ( I think that’s spelled right). If he didn’t know you, you did NOT want to approach him or the house without one of his people there to control him. I was there one day when a repairman visited, and the dog sat on my feet, facing the guy and growling until he left. But with family he was a big love bucket. I adored that dog.
