Genetic analysis have shown that the dog started developing from the wolf about 135.000 years ago. Yet it is highly unlikely that the wolvess were simply domesticated. Contrary to dogs they loose their tameness when they become young grown ups. It is assumed that there had been some wolves that were more trusting and thus dared to go near the upcoming settlings of men. They discovered this way an ecological niche, because there always had been some leftovers. Thus the more trusting wolves had a selective benefit and over thousands of years they evolved into their own species: The dog. Humans were able to breed these for special purposes and thus ensured their survival and expansion.
One of these purposes was known in Ancient Egypt already: Hunting.

Originally shepherd dogs were used for one of these „jobs“: To protect and guide flocks. But nowadays the breeding pursues other goals. The dogs are supposed to be attentive, trainable, self-reliant and physically enduring but still even-tempered and docile. Owing to these characteristics the German Shepherd is preferred for many types of important roles in police, military and medical services.

Our plush-shepherd puppy dog will grow with its important role too: Being a companion, friend, consoler and later even a protector. Don't you think it shows itself being awake and curious?
