msvette2u That's better than pronouncing it "DASH-HOUND"! Argh! I want to scream when people do that, especially when they own the breed!

I've also heard American owners of a Malinois call it a "mal."

Given the French implications of mal, something about that one always makes me smile (= trouble, difficulty, pain or even evil).

GSP = should be GSPD so as not to confuse it with a german guy with a mullet hair-do that just points at things
"GSP" is "German Shorthaired Pointer", btw...not even the same breed.

Look, we have enough trouble getting people to spell shepherd properly. No way are they going to spell it in German properly.

I am going to call them that from now on! hahaha!

Mrs.K X11: in german we call them Schaefie.
As for english, generally people say Shepherd. I don't really use the full name when I talk to other shepherd people. In German I generally talk about schaefies (plural) or Schaeferhunde.

As for the general public, everyone knows what a German Shepherd is and I have yet to meet someone that would think about a human instead of the dog. Usually you get "I love German Shepherds."
