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

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.
