According to the AKC, the German shepherd is the second most popular registered breed in America, and it’s easy to see why. While they may have a stern reputation, people that have a German shepherd in their lives understand that under that serious demeanor beats a heart of pure, goofy doggy gold.
Proud, smart, and loyal, GSDs are one of life’s greatest joys. But sheps have a mischievous side. From big-eared puppies trying to fool you with innocent eyes to wily tricksters pulling a fast one on their beloved human, the appeal and humor of GSDs goes on for days.
