This is an account of an enduring relationship between the author and Polly his white German Shepherd. The story starts with Brian's need for protection for his property. After an abortive attempt to provide this with two vicious Dobermans, Brian finally acts upon advice and purchases a white German Shepherd puppy, Polly. He soon discovers that she has an amazing desire and ability to learn, and he trains her to an exceptionally high standard, at the same time forming a very close relationship with her. Polly had a remarkable character, capable of surprising even Brian, with his lifetime's experience with dogs. This is no more evident than when as a puppy she takes to water as naturally as a Labrador (this was to prove vital later in their lives), or when he finds her tending a badly injured piglet, and then suckling it. The book is peppered with anecdotes of their times together, seeking a living from the land and the sea, where cutting peat, sledding and creel-fishing in some of the most dangerous stretches of sea in Britain were a part of every day life. Polly must be one of the few dogs to have been attacked by a conger eel. An unusual story of a very special dog told in Brian's usual eloquent style.

German Shepherds - Dog Books for Kids Table of Contents Introduction Chapter 1 Chapter 2 Chapter 3 Conclusion Author Bio Introduction "Money will buy a pretty good dog, but it won't buy the wag of his tail." ― Josh Billings German Shepherds are intelligent, versatile and faithful dogs. They have outstanding characteristics, and excel in almost anything they do. This breed is well known and among the 10 most popular breeds in the U.S. But, what makes them so popular? To begin with, their skills extend beyond the home. They are used in law enforcement, serving with police and even the military. They also help with special needs. For example: With those who are handicapped and require constant attention. However, their skills do not end there. Does the name Rin-Tin-Tin ring a bell? He was quite famous and appeared in many movies and shows. He was so popular he received hundreds of fan letters, sometimes thousands per week! And after the World Trade Center disaster, faithful German shepherd dogs risked their lives to comfort rescue workers and help find those who were missing. German shepherds are also excellent watchdogs. Their alert and often suspicious nature, can serve to protect both you and your family from strangers. However, this aspect of their personality may not appeal to you, if you are looking for a more guest friendly dog. This breed has a high energy level. Originally when this dog was first bred, it was for working purposes. The idea was to help herd flocks, get them into groups and so on. This all day task helped to shape a strong and high energy dog that requires a lot of activities to keep their attention. It is important to take note of this part of their personality. Why? Well, if they do not get the attention they need their boredom (even frustration) will shine through, with lots of barking and chewing. Depending on how loud it gets, it may drive you up the wall! Despite this aspect of their personality, there is no doubt German Shepherds are amazing dogs, and a wonderful asset to any home. And with proper training and loving attention, they will stand by you through thick and thin. Not a bad description to add to the list of… man’s best friend!

Originally published New York 1925, this scarce early work on theGerman Shepherd Dog (G.S.D.) is very hard to find in its first edition. VINTAGE DOG BOOKS have now republished it, using the original text and photographs, as part of their CLASSIC BREED BOOKS series. The book was originally published to assist American breeders and owners of the "Police Dog", which at that time was a relatively recent introduction in the U.S.A. Its objective was to provide a complete and concise knowledge of every phase of this breed. The book's two hundred and ten pages contain seven comprehensive chapters: - Origin and History. - Appearance and Characteristics. - Breeding. - Care and Rearing. - Training (Emphasis on Police and Guard Dog Work) - Various Uses. - Diseases and Accidents. The book is well illustrated with text drawings and full page photographs of Champions of that era. This is a fascinating read for any G.S.D. enthusiast or historian of the breed, and also contains much information that is still practical and useful today. Many of the earliest dog breed books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now increasingly scarce and expensive. VINTAGE DOG BOOKS are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
