The name Alsatian comes from the German French border area of Alsace-Lorraine; however, the original name of the dog is German Shepherd dog. These two names have caused confusion over the years as some people think it's a different dog breed. But in fact, the Alsatian and German Shepherd Dog is the same breed of dog.

Well, not usually. Most training professionals strongly recommend against adopting two pups at the same time.

Just because you have two kids and they both want their own puppy doesn't mean you should get two pups.

You stand the best chance of raising well-trained and -socialized puppies one at a time.

A German Shepherd puppy bought from a respected breeder will usually cost between $300 and $900 (or more), depending on whether she is a normal German Shepherd, show-dog or a working dog.

Adult German Shepherds who are proven show dogs or work dogs cost $6,000 to $7,000 or more.

Technically, cat and dog fleas are different species but each can infect the other. The only way you can tell the difference between the two is under a microscope. Despite it's name, the most common flea found on dogs and cats in North America is the cat flea, also known as Ctenocephalides felis.

In summary, for adult dogs, feeding German Shepherds about 2.5 to 3.5 cups of quality kibble per day, twice a day, is a good starting point. Modify amount fed as required based on your dogs size, weight, age and overall daily activity.
