They are amazing!! When I was in college my BF and I got a white shepherd puppy! As she grew we noticed the tip of one of her ears always laid over! She was such a cool dog!!!

Gyspy my old Shepherd had an ear that did that. We always used to tell her "ear up" and she would perk her ears and cock her head trying to understand. She was a really cool compainion and very smart.

They are smart!! I used to talk to her a lot....well I was in college and those were some emotional times.....and she would look at me, and cock her head to the side like she was understanding every little complaint or homesick tear I shed! Loved her so much!

No, she is generally the best behaved dog anywhere we go. When we walk she knows when it's time to behave and walk by my side showing off her beautiful stance, and when I let slack in the lead she's allowed to smell the roses so to speak. We can always tell who understands the breed, either their asking if they can pet Saphira or their grabbing up their dogs and children and walking the other way in fear. She is an incredible dog, the most loyal Velcro dog I've ever had the pleasure of having. She has her own camping chair that she stays in, heaven forbid she lay her body on the dirty ground.


It's not that we spoil her, but she sleeps under the covers right between the two of us. I chose the breed because I'm gone every third night on shift, she really does give my wife piece of mind when I'm gone.
