German Shepherd

Dog ServicesPuppy Services

German Shepherds are very popular for their intelligence and work ethic. As a result, overbreeding has led to genetic issues in many of these pups. One of the larger problems is degenerative myelopathy, a spinal cord disease. This can cause paralysis as it weakens the leg muscles.

These dogs may develop vision problems, including eventual blindness. They can also have neurological disorders like epilepsy.
