The German Shepherd is a breed of dog recognized by the Nintendogs + Cats Club Kennel. Its high intelligence makes it good for military purposes as well as an easy dog to train.


3DS: "This herder hails from Germany. Its high intelligence makes it a good rescue dog."

This is a very brave and determined breed that can run at high speeds and leap amazing heights. These features, along with its sharp sense of smell, have allowed it to take on a variety of life-saving jobs such as rescue and policy work.

The German Shepherd is an intelligent, loyal, and strong dog. The most commonly-known coat color for the German Shepherd is black and tan. However, the German Shepherd ranges in color from pitch black to pure white. Not only does the German Shepherd breed have its own signature color pattern, it has its own signature pose, most commonly seen in the show-strain pedigree of the breed. Oftentimes, dogs of this breed will stand with front paws parallel, one hind paw at a normal position under its body, and the other hind paw extended behind it, with its tail hanging down.

At the Nintendogs + Cats Club Kennel, the German Shepherd comes in Black & Tan and Sable. If the player chooses "Surprise me!" they may find a pure white German Shepherd.
