German shepherd Description
  The German Shepherd is a very strong, well-proportioned, handsome dog. It is also known as the Alsatian. There are three varieties of the German Shepherd: rough-coated, long rough-coated, and the long-haired. It has a slightly elongated body that is sturdy and muscular. It has a light but solid bone structure. The front legs and shoulders are muscular and the thighs are thick and sturdy. Its round feet have very hard soles. It has a bushy tail that reaches almost to its hocks and hangs down when the dog is at rest. The head is in proportion to its body and the forehead has a little convex. The nose is usually black, but blue or liver can occur and its dark eyes are almond-shaped and never protruding, having a lively, intelligent expression. The ears are wide at the base, upright, pointed, and turned forward and it has a strong scissors bite.
