Additional Information: 

The German Shepherd was originally used for herding sheep in Germany but the breed’s intelligence, agility, and other desirable qualities has led to a prominent role working with police/military and for those in need of a guide dog. This working dog’s popularity increased in the United States in the 1900s with canine star Rin-Tin-Tin but faced adversity after World War II and anti-German sentiments. The breed remains popular today, ranking as the second most registered breed of nearly 200 dog breeds, according to the American Kennel Club.
