German Shepherd Dog (dog is part of the breed name based on the german name for the breed)

Just an acronym for the breed we all love! :D

this, and the reason they add DOG into the name is to not confuse the dog with a german shepherd person.

... and if anyone asks you why put the D for dog and not just call it a german shepherd is because a duetsche schafer without adding dog or hund in german to the name means this dude.
