Max Von Stephanitz, the creator of the German Shepherd breed, came up with this gorgeous breed in year 1980. Stephantiz aimed to create courageous, intelligent dogs and the good looks came as a bonus.
To add to their glory, German Shepherd dogs that Stephanitz bred had several striking colors and different kinds of coats.
One type of the GSD breed is long haired. Studies suggest that long haired German Shepherd puppies are born when some GSD genes that actually went wrong.
These genes are called recessive genes, but produce Shepherds that are even more beautiful than those with the right genes.
