The Animal Shelter web site was created in an effort to place homeless animals throughout the United States. These animals are often located in one of thousands of animal shelters and rescue’s throughout the Country which offer a temporary placement while a loving family is found. At the Animal Shelter we provide a database of animals which will allow you to search for your next pet based on animal type, breed, size, gender and location. You can also search through our growing directory which now includes, animal shelters, lost, found or adoptable pets, pet meds, dog parks, and hundreds of frequently asked questions. If you would like to make a gift or support our cause please purchase a ribbon from our animal shelter support page. Remember adopting a pet is saving a life.

The King Shepherd
The King Shepherd – A Grand Dog and a Brave Protector
The King Shepherd is a dog breed that was developed in the ‘90s. The breed was created to fulfill the wishes of those who wanted the appearance of a German Shepherd, but on a larger scale. This breed is a combination of German Shepherd, Alaskan Malamute and Great Pyrenees.
The King Shepherd has a grand posture and dominant appearance. It body is robust and well-proportioned. It is larger and furrier than the German Shepherd. This dog expresses power and stability. The body is longer than tall, but it remains compact. Its head is massive with a round skull. The forehead is moderately wide and high. There are no wrinkles on the forehead. The almond-shaped eyes are normal in size with a serious look. The stop is deep and the muzzle is somewhat shorter than the German Shepherd’s. The nose and the lips are black. The ears are set up on the head. They are medium-sized and a V-shape. The neck is thick and strong and the back is long and straight. The chest is moderately wide, but powerful. The legs are not long, but stable and muscular. The tail is long and carried low. The coat is long, straight and dense and it is longer around the neck, chest and hind legs. It has feathering on the ears and tail.
There are some differences between the genders. The females look more supple and small than the males. The females are 25 to 29 inches tall whereas the males are about 29 to 32 inches tall. They weigh 75 to 110 pounds.
This imposing dog is very bright and easy to train. It is also self-confident and well-balanced as a personality. It is a working dog that can manage to herd the sheep. However, it excels at being very attentive and protective towards its master. It is pretty friendly towards strangers, but it remains distant and careful. It does best as a pet, because it loves human companionship and it is eager to satisfy its master. It offers the best protection and it can make you feel safe anywhere you are. It must be trained from an early stage, but this would not be a challenge at all, because of its intelligence. Also, it must be socialized as a pup so it can learn to accept other pets or animals.
It can do well in an apartment, but you must exercise it properly. It prefers large spaces so it can freely move, but it can also manage with smaller places. It is moderately active indoors. It is perfect for children and active persons. It requires long, daily walks and rigorous exercises. Keep in mind that this dog craves for challenges, so you need to offer it various activities and trainings.
Grooming is quite easy, they only need to be brushed regularly – once per week – and washed occasionally. They can live up to 12 years.
The King Shepherd is a stunning dog that is eager to find somebody who can offer it shelter.
