When I illustrate a dog I like to know as much about it as I can. So it's a learning project as as well as an art project. German Shepherd Dogs are of course, beautiful as well as very smart. These Dogs are protective, loyal and devoted to their people. They are so good at so many things - family companion, guide, service, search & rescue, military work, livestock & property guardian and babysitter, they do need a job. If you don't give them one they'll find their own. They have loving hearts, lavish your German Shepherd Dog with respect, companionship and love.
