With their pointed, pure white coats and stoic dispositions, White Shepherds have an almost mythical quality to them; they look like they've stepped right out of the pages of a fantasy book and seem to have a sublime, for lack of a better word, "essence" to them. Despite their fabled visage, the White Shepherd is a very down to Earth dog breed that is just as friendly and sociable as their German Shepherd cousin. The coloration of the White Shepherd's coat is due to them having a recessive gene but other than that, there aren't very many differences between White Shepherds and German Shepherds. Therefore, White Shepherds can also participate in a number of the same activities German Shepherds can.
White Shepherds are just as versatile and adaptable as their German Shepherd cousins; they have an equally strong and athletic build, an equally innate sense of smell, and a naturally refined sense of intuition. White Shepherds aren't as common or well known as their German Shepherd kin, which we feel is a crying shame to a degree, but they've got everything a dog needs to stand out and make a lasting impression on the world. If you're interested in adopting a White Shepherd, be prepared to live an active lifestyle that will take you out of your comfort zone but that will also give you a brand new perspective on the world.
