The German Shepherd (Template:Lang-de, Template:IPA-de) is a breed of medium to large-sized working dog that originated in Germany. In the English language, the breed's officially recognized name is German Shepherd Dog (sometimes abbreviated as GSD). The breed was officially known as the Alsatian in Britain from after the First World War until 1977 when its name was changed back to German Shepherd.
