German Shepherd Breeder - Dogs - Campbellfield, Victoria : Perfect Pets Profile

VonBIOS is a Registered Breeder of working line, German Shepherd Dogs in keeping with the original breed standards of Captain Max Von Stephanitz, the founder of the German Shepherd Dog in the 1890's.

The intended purpose of the German Shepherd Dog was for herding, livestock, and family protection, providing continuing improvements through to the mid-1940s', then after World War II, the breed evolved in two (2) different directions during the '60s through to the new millennium due to political control during the post-World War II years.

Once the demand for livestock protection diminished, it wasn't difficult for Stephanitz and his Verein für Deutsche Schäferhunde (SV) Club co-founder (Artur Meyer), to recognise the fabulous intelligence and drive this new breed of dog could offer many diverse communities, industries, and government. This was evident with the introduction of the German Shepherd Dog into the Military in the Great War (World War I).
