A German shepherd typically has about 220 million olfactory receptors, while a human has about 5 million, says Mark Plonsky, Ph.D., a psychologist and dog trainer at the University of Wisconsin in Madison
Humans~5 million
Dachshund~125 million
Fox Terrier~147 million
Beagle~225 million
German Shepherd~225 million
Bloodhound~300 million

Bite force:
When Brady Barr measured the bite force of various animals for a National Geographic program, a hyena again was measured at 1000 psi pounds of force. A lion's bite force measured 691, a shark 669, and a Rottweiler 328 psi pounds of force. A German shepherd came in at 238, and a pit bull's bite was measured at 235 psi pounds of force. As far as I can tell, there are no studies of any kind, peer-reviewed or not, showing canine bite force to measure more than the 328 psi pounds of force recorded by Brady Barr.

WHAT!!! German Shepherds have the same nose as a Beagle?! That's so crazy!

"For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear."
