The so called ‘White German Shepherd Dog’ is called like this for a reason: It’s been bred of the white coat genes of the well-known German Shepherd. The courageous White Shepherd is perfect for protection: it will not hesitate one second to risk its life to save the human pack. But it needs to feel close to them: it is not recommended to leave a White Shepherd alone for a longer period of time.
As this alert dog can learn very easily, it can fulfill various roles: it can be used as a guide dog, guard dog, herding dog, or whatever is necessary.
Medium length, dense, close-lying double coat or long double coat; abundant undercoat covered with hard, straight protection hair; face, ears and front of legs are covered with shorter hair; at the neck and the back of the legs the coat is slightly longer. Slightly wavy, hard hair is permitted.
This self-confident dog is very loyal and protective type. The White Shepherds Dog tends to be quite playful and curious, they need a lot of fun and care. They love children: it is one of the most suitable breeds for a family with children.
Also, this is a good breed to train: it likes to learn and it learns fast. Although the White Shepherd is a self-confident type, it can act slightly aloof with strangers, but this is one of the characteristics which make it a good watchdog too. This breed should never be aggressive, or if so, there has to be something wrong with the maintanance or the blood line.
