    Seriously? Well if it has Papers that it is a Purebred GSD, then it’s technically from Germany.. Or it’s ancestors were. Obviously, the “German” part is either where it was originated or who it was originated by.

    Tell me, where have you seen a Hawaiian dog? Does it look Hawaiian? Does it speak Hawaiian? Same for Australian (Shepherds, Obviously), A completely different breed. Does it look Australian? Does it speak Australian?

    If it looks brown and tan ,menacing and solid built then you have a alsatian.
    Visit your friend’s unannounced and try gaining entry through the down stairs window and when your half way in and all you can see is a big mouth full of teeth making a lot of noise approaching fast then you will know it is a german shepherd…Enjoy.

    Easy. Just greet him with “guten tag!” If he looks at you like you’re crazy, he’s not a “German” Shepherd. If he starts wagging his tail, he understood you and IS a “German” Shepherd. Seriously, this is common sense. I can’t even believe I have to explain it to you!

    I would suggest offering him some bratwurst and seeing how he reacts to it, but I’m pretty sure all dogs would frantically devour it whether they were German or not, so I guess that wouldn’t be a very good way to test him.

    Look AT him and then compare to photos from online . It’s pretty obvious. They have a distinct look. Unless you’re talking about a puppy and left out that important detail.
