To be honest, black German Shepherds can be quite intimidating mainly due to their larger build and features. However, they are not as aggressive as they are thought to be.
In fact, these dogs are sweet and even-tempered and will get along with just about anyone as long as they are socialized. Here are a few more amazing personality traits that you have to look forward to.
They may be intimidating to look at but black German Shepherds are absolute cuddle bears.
They love their human companions and prefer nothing more than to be around them all the time. They thrive in lively homes even with children around but will also settle comfortably as single-person dogs.
Attentive And Eager To Serve
Black German Shepherds are working dogs at their very core. Nothing makes them as happy as having a purpose. This is one of the main reasons why they are so popular for use as support dogs.
When raising one, this is also important to consider as lack of a purpose usually frustrates the pooch. So give them something fun to do whether it is a game, a scavenger hunt, or even some empty chore that makes the dog feel useful.
The best way to tell that your black German Shepherd is truly happy is to watch how active and playful they are. Once they feel safe and comfortable, they are super goofy and will not hold back on their ridiculous antiques.
Intelligent And Responsive
Like any other German Shepherd, the black variety is one very intelligent dog. They pick up very easily on fun new skills whether it is a new game or a complicated task they need to learn. The best part is that once they learn, they are very obedient and do not require you to keep repeating commands.
