A General Description of
The King Shepherd closely resembles
German Shepherd dogs. The build of this breed is
heavy bodied, heavy boned, slightly long, robust,
rugged and muscular; the structure is solid. The
head and forehead are immense and well-defined.
The cheeks are trapezoid, not too full and moderately
curved. The ears are erect, thick and firm and of
medium size. The eyes are almond-shaped, set somewhat
aslant. The neck is carried erect when the dog is
excited, normally being carried horizontally. The
chest is extremely deep, broad and wide. The belly
is moderately drawn up. The back (including the
lumbar region) is straight and well developed. Thickly
feathered, the slightly curved tail reaches at least
to the hocks. The King Shepherd has round, hard,
short, well closed, arched paws with short, hard,
The King Shepherd comes in a wide
range of acceptable colors : Sable (a brownish tan
with brown or black markings or a grayish silver
with black markings); bi-colored (predominantly
black with red, tan or cream); black saddle with
red, tan, gold, cream, or silver markings; solid
black and solid white. Strong, rich colors and pigments
are highly preferred.
Coarse-haired variety :
The topcoat is very dense. Each single hair stands
straight and close to the body. On the head the
hair is short, as also on the inside of the ear,
the forward side of the legs, the paws and the toes,
while on the neck the hair is longer and denser.
On the hindquarters and buttocks the hair is longer,
down to the pastern or the metatarsus: the thighs
are moderately trousered. The length of hair varies
from one dog to another, and thus there are many
types within the single variety.
Long-haired variety :
The coat is longer than that of the preceding variety,
not always completely straight, and especially not
close to the body. The individual hairs are noticeably
longer, particularly inside the ears and behind
them, on the back part of the forearm and often
in the lumbar region. They form tufts at the ears
and fringes from the elbow to the pastern. The trousers
are long and dense. The tail is densely feathered
with light fringe below.
Height: The normal
height of the King Shepherd is 25”-29"/
The minimum weight for these dogs
should be not less than 100 pounds at maturity,
with the ideal weight for male dogs being 120-145
Minimum weight for females is 80
pounds at maturity, with the ideal weight being
Temperament of the Breed
The chief qualities of this outstanding
breed are : a well-balanced nervous system, readiness,
lack of inhibition, vigilance, incorruptibility,
combined with courage and cleverness in defense.
It is known to be an excellent watch-dog and guard-dog.
The King Shepherd is characterized by unsurpassed
loyalty towards its master and eagerness to please.
They are also remarkably athletic,
very intelligent and easy to train. These qualities,
coupled with docility, obedience and friendly disposition,
makes the King Shepherd a treasured pet.
Better suited to outdoor
or indoor lifestyle?
Owing to its huge size, the King
Shepherd is not recommended for apartment life.
Though the King Shepherd can prove to be a good
companion for kids, they should be allowed to interact
with kids only under close supervision because of
How active is the breed?
As the King Shepherd holds tremendous
energy and stamina, it needs vigorous exercise.
The King Shepherd loves strenuous activities, preferably
combined with training of some kind (e.g. obedience
training), because these dogs are very intelligent
and crave a good challenge.
They need to be taken on a daily
brisk, long walk or jog. They also enjoy running
alongside while its owner bicycles. If under-exercised,
this breed can become restless and destructive.
The King Shepherd's coat is highly
weather-resistant. The King Shepherd sheds and requires
a moderate amount of grooming. King Shepherds blow
their coats twice a year. They shed their full winter
coat in the Spring; starting around April/May till
end of June. Then, they shed their full summer coat
usually starting around the end of September to
the end of October or beginning of November.
A good fifteen minute brushing
twice a week and a good bath only when necessary
are more than adequate.
The King Shepherd is normally
a healthy breed.
However, there are some infrequent
cases of hip dysplasia. Any male King Shepherd measuring
less than 27 inches at the shoulders or any female
King Shepherd measuring less than 25 inches at the
shoulders, or exhibiting any unreasonable expression
of, or any form of, fear or sharp shyness, dogs
with hanging ears or undershot or overshot bite,
blue or liver colored dogs or dogs with lack of
pigmentation except solid white coated, or having
a nose that is not predominantly black, a dog possessing
a long, or narrow muzzle, a docked tail, or one
that curls forward above the vertical line from
the croup is not fully healthy or normal.
