German Shepherds are very popular among families because they are reliable, loyal and obedient. They have been used in war time for their ability to track down enemy soldiers and deliver them safely back home. However, there is another reason why Germans are so loved by many people: Their names! Most of these names are quite interesting and unusual. For example, if you want a puppy with a cool name like “Darth Vader” or “The Joker”, then go ahead and look for one. But don’t expect it to be any good at tracking down your enemies! If you want a dog that will make everyone laugh, then choose something like “Jedi”.
However, if you really want a dog that will bring joy into your life, then pick out a name like “Star Wars” or “Empire Strikes Back.” These names are both extremely fun and memorable.

The German Shepherd is an extremely intelligent and vigilant breed of dogs. They are known to have a very strong sense of smell and hearing, as well as having exceptional vision; their physical attributes make them arguably the perfect guard dog. German Shepherds are normally used by the military and police force, but have recently become more popular as pets among families. The only problem with this is that these dogs require lots of exercise, if you do not give them enough they can become destructive and bored, getting up to all sorts of trouble around the house.
German Shepherds also need to be trained from an early age, or else they can become dominant over their owners. All in all the German Shepherd is a wonderful dog if you have the time to spend with it.
