This is the most extensive and thorough book on the German Shepherd that we have ever seen. The book is 9.5" wide by 11.5" tall, featuring full page color pictures and illustrations. This is a must have for all GSD owners.
Hundreds of books the world over have been dedicated to the planet's most widespread dog breed, the German Shepherd. That library continues to grow all the time, but it is unlikely that any of them will delve so thoroughly into the wealth of biological knowledge on this extraordinary breed than the present encyclopedia.
A dream dog of consummate beauty and loyalty with an enormous appetite for work, the German Shepherd is also a lifesaver; an indefatigable assistant to humans in whose service it utilizes its extraordinary sense of smell and unbounded joyful energy.
The idiosyncratic biology of the German Shepherd is becoming increasingly clear. Veterinary research is adding to our knowledge day after day; as the limits of our understanding are pushed back unremittingly, especially in those areas of prevention that particularly affect the breed:
- an established digestive sensitivity that may be difficult to handle
- a fragile skin to protect
- an osteoarticular system under great daily stress
- an immune system that may be subjected to the harshest demands
Every day humans learn a little more about the German Shepherd. As a result we are able to improve screening, prevention and protection, in terms of nutrition, environment and behavior, which help extend the life expectancy of this so endearing of breeds.
