German Shepherd Puppy Information Center
The German Shepherd Dog (GSD) is one of the most popular dog breeds in the world. There are many reasons why it has become so popular: it’s easy to train, docile, loyal, obedient and good with children; its size makes it ideal for guarding or protection work; and it looks very impressive when walking at a parade. However, there are some drawbacks to owning a GSD: they’re not exactly the best with agility or tracking skills, and their short legs make them less agile than other dogs.
However, if you have the money to spend on a dog, then you’ll probably want one. And if you don’t have that kind of money, but still love dogs anyway…well I guess this is your lucky day!
What Are The Best German Shepherds For Sale?
There are several different types of German shepherds, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. You may choose between a purebred GSD, a cross breed like the Doberman Pinscher or the Great Dane, or an imported GSD from another country. Each type has its pros and cons. Let’s take a look at what these differences are and which one would be best for me.
The first and the most common one is a purebred German shepherd. A purebred GSD has all the same advantages and disadvantages that we discussed earlier: easy to train, good with children, able to work as a guard dog or protection dog, etc.The only difference is that they are more expensive. The average price for a purebred GSD is $500.If you want to buy one from a pet shop, then it will probably cost even more.
