Do Germans love German Shepherds?

I had to laugh when asked if Germans love this breed of dog (also known as Alsatian or natively Deutscher Schaferhund). So I thought I’d better look into the issue. I never used to be sure what the difference between an Alsatian and a German shepherd is, ask anyone and you’ll get a different answer each time. I’ve finally settled on the idea that they are one and the same.

Anyway, a quick search on for native German pages and native German language pages reveals a TONNE of pages on the subject. None of which I can understand… so that’s a “yes” in answer to the question :)

    Ha ha ha, who on earth asked you that question!!!

    I’ve got a German friend, I’ll have to ask him about the proliferation of Germans Sheperds in Germany.

    The only German I know has a English Bulldog, so that is not much help :)
