On 1/29/2019, the United States Postal Service announced a four-stamp set planned for release later in 2019 entitled “Military Working Dogs”. Each block of stamps features a stylized depiction of the 4 most commonly used breeds by the military (German Shepherd, Labrador Retriever, Belgian Malinois and Dutch Shepherd) with backgrounds of red, white, blue and gold to represent the American flag and patriotism. The art for the USPS set was created by DKNG Studios in Los Angeles and art director Greg Breeding designed the stamps. ... See MoreSee Less

K9 officers need a vest and a heat alarm... We have Lost too many these past 2 years.. Plus. They should have cameras on their vests to show what they go through to protect others.
Breed standard states that the GSD should walk upright on their paws.
Poor dog. Not his fault, but once again, people are overbreeding and now this animal suffers for it.
I am not any sort of expert or even amateur whatsoever but I’ve seen our working K9s up close and personal and a neighbor who has two fine perfectly trained GSDs and this poor dog looks lame. He isn’t crisp or powerful looking at all. 😞
Horrible what they did to these poor dogs rear ends.. the topline should be level, not sloped downward.
If my gsd walked like that I’d be taking her to the vet to find out what was broken. That does not look good for any dog. WTH?
this is just so so sad , what they are doing to this beautiful majestic breed is just sickening.... thinking a basically crippled dog is ok and considering this to be a show dog is just criminal in my book.... breeding this crippling stance makes me sick... the akc is so wrong and to encourage this is as good is criminal imo....Animal cruelty is illegal .... and this is definitely animal cruelty
Why are you reshowing this now--nearly 4 years later? To milk more contributions? Sorry, as the owner of a 100lb, female GSD, with no kroupe, excellent hips and a breeder whose focus is on producing beautiful, old fashioned, flat-back, GSDs with unbelievable intelligence and temperaments, I think the AKC has destroyed this breed and should be embarrassed at what they are promoting as GSD. Shame on them.
I purchased ONE bred GSD in my lifetime...All others were RESCUED. Some of the comments on here are DISGRACEFUL. If some of you would be more concerned by the dog itself, maybe there wouldnt be so many problems....
Unfortunately the dog shows are nothing but politics and not structure or performance
So sad. Gross what breeders will do to extreme line breeding trying to ‘perfect’ the written standard. Extreme type breeding is found in every pureblood. Ethical breeders just breed to standard. This is not ethical
I Love big "mutts" and I can not lie... My dogs are healthy active rescue mutts and I love them!!
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a dog stand like this. And that’s something you would notice. It’s photoshop
They've overbred their asses too low. Uncomfortable for the dog, and causes all kinds of hip and back leg dysfunction and disease
This dogs going to have hip problems later in life.
When stupid humans find something attractive and set about ruining a breed to produce it..
A shame what people did!! here the first german Shepherd dog
American blood line is a complete different dog , these breeders have taken the looks and drive and nerves out of these dogs!
This is at the national dog show in Philly. The top conformation dogs and handlers do not attend this show since venue relocation to Oaks, PA. Look up 'Tony' aka GCh Marquis' Hermes V Kenlyn. He represented German Shepherds and took a group 2 at this year's nationals
This dog is absolutely beautiful.
Poor dogs, ruined by the people that claim to love them. Shocking and shameful.
He’s a little over angulated and his hawks are long. But his movement is good. The pictures aren’t the best, making his front look a bit restricted so he needs more reach, but his rear drive is good. Study the breed and it’s MOVEMENT before you even dare belittle this dog’s structure, which, is pretty damn good.
akc, money-nothing else matters-sad, and puppy mills are only the beginning of the trail of tears and greed that is akc-shameful
OMG look at that hind end! I can't understand who would say that's great breed standard! Sad. Nancy
The poor dog, horrible greedy breeder messing up the breed
