When we hear the word “K9,” the breed that immediately comes to our mind is the German Shepherd. They’re strong, agile, courageous, and highly intelligent, which is what makes them perfect for the job.
Those who have experienced having these dogs as partners at work have high regard for their character. These dogs rarely give them a headache because they’re effortless to train. It doesn’t take them forever to understand commands and perform tasks that are expected of them.
The gentle giant
Being the loyal breed that they are, German Shepherds don’t show their enemies mercy when they’re on defense mode. They are not at all afraid to hurt other people, especially if it means protecting their humans or any of their canine friends.
While sometimes this breed can come off as scary, those who own these pups share that they’re the exact opposite when they’re at home. They’re very loving and gentle when they’re around their family. If you have children below five years of age at home, you can count on these dogs to assume the guardian role and watch over them.
A day in the life of a German Shepherd
Recently, owners of German Shepherd shared photos of their pups on a thread online. They wanted to show everyone what these dogs do when they’re no busy sniffing out drugs and chasing after criminals.
The photos showed German Shepherds doing all sorts of mundane things. Some of them were striking all sorts of poses in front of the camera, others were riding skateboards, and a good number of them were caught trying to sleep in random places.
The thread earned different kinds of reactions from netizens. Those who caught wind of it shared their amazement at how the breed can be adorable and fierce all at once. It also made a lot of people want to have German Shepherds of their own!
