German Shepherds are highly active dogs, willing to learn and eager to have a purpose. They have been ranked third dog breed regarding intelligence, close after Border Collies and Poodles.
They excel at guarding. Most are inherently suspicious towards strangers, and they are protective towards home and family.
This is the most popular dog breed in a number of American cities, such as Buffalo, Chicago, Cincinnati, Detroit, and Miami. They are the third most popular breed in Seattle, Houston, and Portland, and the second most popular in Philadelphia and Boston.
