Um... no. "Real" Shepherds are GSDs that have not been mixed with other breeds. Once you've introduced another breed, you have a mixed-breed dog. Not saying there's anything wrong with a mixed-breed dog, just don't expect your "King" shepherd to be just like the GSD you used to have.

Have you ever owned or met a "King" shepherd?

King Shepherds are a cross between the German Shepherd, the Alaskan Malamute, and the Great Pyrenese. Just because they are not a pure breed, does not mean that they cannot be great for one's lifestyle. If you find that this
"breed" is right for you, then by all means, go ahead and get yourself one. Just make sure that the sire and dam are OFA certified/health tested.

shephards, King Shepherds and German Shepherds are different
breeds. the shephard is the most rare breed. i don't think
there's any Shepherd in a shephard.

Any links would be helpful as well as anyone on here who owns one and can tell me where to purchase. I am going through king shepherd withdrawals.

I found a King Shepherd/Great Dane mixed litter in Gibsons, BC ... maybe the folks can tell you who owns the sire, or where the sire came from, and you can find your puppy that way?

I don't think it's a good idea to encourage backyard breeders.

I don't think that's a great dane with the puppies--certainly not like any great dane I've ever seen.

I don't think it's a full blooded great Dane. It looks mixed...

There's an international King Shepherd club, it might be your best bet for finding a healthy one or learning more about them. (KSCI provided by Bravenet.com

Doesn't a "real" shepherd normally stand on two legs rather than four?
