Here at Vom Sherman we strive to breed only the best of the best German Shepherds. Working to bring back the old fashioned German Shepherds, nice strong straight backs, calm and stable temperaments with the heart of a lion.
THE GERMAN SHEPHERD FEMALE
The female German shepherd should be smaller in size and feminine in structure. You should be able to recognize her gender from distance.
The female may be smaller in size, but the size can be of advantage in her working ability. Female German shepherd have the "pack" instinct. They will be protective of their family more so then males. This instinct will sometimes cause her to be jealous among the other dogs in the household. If the female German shepherd is not intended for breeding, she should be spayed. The female dog is Ideal for a family, will protect her family (her pack)with a much stronger desire then the male.
THE GERMAN SHEPHERD MALE
Generally, the German shepherd male is larger in size and more masculine in structure. The size and the masculinity of the male, most often is intimidating to strangers. German shepherd males are generally more territorial of their location. The marking of the territory can be a problem. How-ever, if trained properly, the problem can be controlled. Neutering may help lighten this problem (In our experience neutering the male/s did not alter this territorial marking). German shepherd males are also larger in size and bulk. They will go further to explore their territory when scent of female in heat is near.
