Long Haired German Shepherd Puppy Picture

Caleb is a 10 mos old Long Coated German Shepherd. He is already 28" tall and 100lbs and will not be full grown until 3 yrs.of age. He should top out at 120-130lbs and approx. 30" tall. The Long Coated Shepherds are a lot more laid back than the traditional shepherds.

They are considered a fault by AKC standards, but they were the original shepherds that the short coats were bred from in the 1800's. They have a very loving temperament and are very easily trained because of their high intelligence.
