The Noble German Shepherd
Many dogs, today, are being mistreated and trained to be vicious guard dogs. So when you encounter a noble canine, it is enough to make you wonder, just what motivates some modern day dog “heros” we hear about in the news. What heros, you say? This German Shepherd dog really fits the bill
The incident Friday the 15th on the NYC expressway was a truly unique example. A German Shepherd was hit by an automobile and lay bleeding and helpless, with cars edging carefully around it. But, just like the “masked man” of the old days, a hero comes weaving its way through all the traffic to stand guard and keep officials at bay. The hero, the son of the injured dog, circled and barked warnings and lunged at those who tried to approach its mother. After sometime, the officials were able to get to the injured Shepherd and take it to the Vet for treatment.
What is it in their make-up that causes them to put their own life in jeopardy? It is their built-in instinct that enabled the German shepherd hero to rush headlong into traffic and loyally stand guard, something missing even in some humans today. We have heard many unusual stories about German shepherds in the past and wonder at their loyal acts in protecting their owners. Some of us have actually experienced watching their loyalty grow as the German shepherd becomes used to his new family.
No one knows what motivates these animals to do these heroic deeds but one thing is sure to be the human emotions they pick up from loving and caring owners, as well as the inborn instinct and some say, in females, hormones. Another thing that enables a Shepherd to be so loyal is the ability they have to identify a threat to their owners. This comes from good knowing how to train a German Shepherd and TLC. Each dog is an individual as to what they are able to do in any given situation. Do not expect them to all be heroes. Just like anything else you get out of an animal what you put in it, especially with German Shepherds.
