One of the world’s most beloved dog breeds is the German Shepherd. German Shepherd plush stuffed animals are also just as popular. Like the breed they replicate, German Shepherd plush stuffed animals are hard to resist their soft, plush fur make them ideal for lots of hugs.
The grace, strength and intelligence of the German Shepherd dog has ensured that it remains one of the most popular breeds, much valued as a guard dog, and for military and police work. This excellent working dog is the outcome of a breeding program started only at the very end of the last century. It began in 1899 when a sheep herding dog named Hector, was discovered by Rittmeister von Stephanitz. Hector was akin to ancient herding breeds that were once native to northern Germany. The dog was renamed and eventually was officially registered with the German Shepherd Dog Club of Germany. As a result of Hector’s ‘discovery,’ he became the foundation for all German Shepherd’s that followed. The American Kennel Club recognized the breed in 1911.
German Shepherd’s are easily recognizable; they’re almost always black and tan in color (and sometimes all black, or sable) and have erect ears, dark eyes and a long full tail. A German Shepherd plush stuffed animal is replicated to look exactly like the real thing and they can be purchased in any number of sizes. While the breed itself is large males can weigh up to 88 pounds or more some German Shepherd plush stuffed animals are made small enough to fit in your hand, making them a perfect choice for tiny fingers. For those with a penchant for something bigger, German Shepherd plush stuffed animals are also made in both sitting and/or lying positions. Either way, next to the real thing, any child would be very pleased with a German Shepherd plush stuffed animal as part of their plush toy collection.
German Shepherds are both dependable and intelligent. They are also beautiful and gentle. Unfortunately, mass production of Shepherds has resulted in dogs with some extreme health issues, most notably, hip displaysia. But, that hasn’t stopped the buying public from purchasing these highly intelligent and gentle dogs. They are hard to resist after all, if not for simply how smart they are.
