White German Shepherd Dog – A Complete Guide To A Snowy White Pup
The white german shepherd dog is one of the most popular breeds in the world. There are many reasons why it’s so popular: its color, its size, its shape, and its temperament. They’re all good qualities to have if you want to look like a super hero or something!
I mean what kind of person doesn’t love a superhero?
(I’m not judging)
There are two main varieties of white german shepherd dogs: the standard variety and the miniature. The standard variety is much larger than the miniature variety, which makes them ideal for show ring. You’ll notice that they tend to be a bit more muscular looking than their smaller counterparts. The miniature variety tends to be thinner with shorter legs and less muscled body type compared to their bigger siblings.
The white german shepherd is a medium sized dog with a short coat that ranges from light colored to almost completely white. Their eyes are large and round, but not almond shaped. They have small ears that stand straight up. The nose is long and pointed, while the mouth is wide open. Their teeth are straight and clean looking.
Their noses tend to stick out when they’re excited or happy, though this isn’t always the case.
The white german shepherd is a working dog. They were originally bred to herd sheep, cattle, and other animals. They have proven themselves to be great police dogs because of their instinct to protect the flocks from predators such as cougars, coyotes, bears, and wolves. They are also used as search and rescue dogs due to their innate tracking abilities. A properly trained white german shepherd can do almost anything that you could hope for in a companion or working dog!
The white german shepherd’s personality is a combination of several traits. They are intelligent and curious, but they can be stubborn at times. They tend to be wary of strangers and make great guard dogs. They form very strong bonds with their owners and families, but don’t like to be teased or offended in any way. They need plenty of early socialization so they learn how to behave around other people and animals.
Without this early training, they may become overly defensive or even aggressive around other people.
In some cases, the white german shepherd can suffer from a condition known as Alopecia X, or baldness. The reasons for this condition are not well understood by the scientific community and there is currently no known cure. However, it is not thought to be a health risk to these animals and is mostly considered to be a cosmetic problem. Owners will want to keep their pets clean to avoid skin irritation caused by excessive hair shedding.
The life span of the white german shepherd is about 10 to 11 years when properly cared for.
How to Care for a White German Shepherd
Unlike other dog breeds, the white german shepherd doesn’t need daily brushing. In fact, this can actually damage the quality of their coat if done too often. About two times a week should be enough to keep their fur clean and free of any mats or tangles.
While their fur doesn’t need daily brushing, it still needs to be washed regularly. Otherwise, the natural oils in their skin and fur won’t be able to keep them well protected from bacteria, dirt, or dust mites that can cause dermatitis or other skin irritations. A weekly bath should be enough to keep them looking (and smelling) their best.
Ears should also be inspected on a weekly basis. Dirt, hair, and other debris can get trapped inside the ear canal. This is especially true for white german shepherds as their large ears are prone to collecting anything and everything. Their ears should be cleaned inside and out to avoid any potential problems caused by bacteria or other germs.
If you want to keep their teeth in top condition, you should brush them at least once per day. This will not only keep their breath fresh, but it can also prevent any serious dental diseases or other conditions caused by plaque buildup.
The large size of the white german shepherd means that these dogs have a lot of energy to burn off each day. Without any exercise at all, they can become disruptive or troublesome due to boredom.
They were originally bred to herd various types of livestock and this instinct never quite leaves them. If you do not give them something productive to do, then they will find something unproductive to do. This could be anything from chewing your furniture or barking all day long.
These dogs need a large amount of space to run and play in each day. If you do not have acreage that they can roam around on, make sure that you take them to a place where they can get some fresh air and exercise every day. A couple of walks won’t cut it. They need to run for at least a few hours to get their minds and muscles relaxed.
The younger a white german shepherd is when it is given the chance to romp around and play, the more energetic and well-behaved they tend to be as they grow older.
Even though the white german shepherd does not have any special care requirements, there are a few things that should be addressed. The first of these is their skin and fur.
The fur of the white german shepherd does tend to grow faster and fall out more rapidly. You will need to brush them more often to avoid any excessive hair loss. However, this is not a highly recommended activity for these dogs. It may seem like it would keep them calm and relaxed, but it actually has the complete opposite reaction. The more you brush and pet them, the more they enjoy it.
This can lead to demanding behavior.
In addition to this, the skin and fur of a white german shepherd can become extremely oily if it is not properly cared for. This too can cause problems with their skin and even their eyes. Regular bathing and grooming can help to keep these issues under control.
The Great Pyrenees Sheepdog is a very rare breed of dog that is best suited for experienced dog owners. While these dogs will put their lives on the line to protect their master and his property, they require a significant amount of attention, exercise, and training.
This is not the type of dog that you can forget to feed or walk for a week. These are creatures of habit that thrive when they know what is expected of them and the more consistent you are with them, the better they do.
In the right hands, the Great Pyrenees breed can be a loyal and loving pet that will stay by your side through thick and thin. Just remember that you need to put just as much into this relationship as they do or it will not work out.
