Is the breed Alsation or German Shepherd

At the end of the War it was thought that the breed would not flourish were the word German to appear in its name and it was therefore decided to call the breed the Alsatian Wolf Dog after the German-French border area of Alsace-Lorraine.

The “Wolf Dog” tag was later to be dropped—again as it was felt that this would prejudice the breed.

Thus we had for many years the misnomer of the breed brought about by national hostilities.

In 1977, following numerous campaigns by breeders the name of the breed was changed back to the German Shepherd Dog by which it is known now.
