Breed origins

Its origins go back to the end of the 19th century, when a breeding program was initiated in Germany to guard and protect herds of rams against the wolves. The cavalry captain of the German army, Maximilian von Stephanitz, is considered the father of the race. Later, after the appearance of the Association of Friends of the German Shepherd in 1899, a selection of specimens whose crosses improved both the psychic and physical aspect of the animal was initiated.
