Rare Breed Monday: White Swiss Shepherd

Image from
The White Swiss Shepherd is a family and working companion dog that's cheerful and quick to learn. They're known for being particularly friendly with children, and attentive to any threats to the family. The name comes from Switzerland being the first country to officially recognize the breed.

This is a young breed, emerged from white coat lines of German Shepherds. They often have longer fur than German Shepherds, and they sometimes only have a single coat.

White Swiss Shepherds are highly intelligent and possess a well developed sense for loyalty, which makes him them one of the most versatile working dogs. They have self confidence, they like exercising with their human family, and they are both playful and curious.

  1. Hmmm new to me again! Although they do look similar to some other dogs that I can't put my finger on.

  2. They are pretty! We like the solid black shepards too, I think they are Belgian or something.

  3. They look a lot like the white-GSD my daddy had that I grew up with.

  4. Thank you for coming over, everyone! =D Of course I want one. No big surprise there, LOL!
