german shepherd dog breed information hoobynoo


The German Shepherd is one of the most recognisable large dog breeds in the UK, ranking inside the Top 10 in lists for popularity among all the breed variations.


The German Shepherd tends to cost in the region of £600 for a non KC registered variety and up to £900 for a KC registered dog, so if you see German Shepherd puppies for sale or Alsatian puppies for sale in a newspaper or online do keep this price in mind for a non-KC registered animal.


A German Shepherd is expected to live between 9-13 years on average, is usually around 60cm in height and generally weighs in at between 20-40kg.


German Shepherds are exceptionally easy to train with what it considered a high intelligence, are good with children and require an enormous amount of exercise to stay satisfied. They delight in company and do not like being left alone for more than short periods of time.
