Most of my collecting efforts are geared towards model horses, but canids come next. Wolves, foxes, you name it. :)

And among other canids, my small pack of German shepherds holds a special place.

Enjoy:

These are wonderful, I love the Schleich German shepherd standing on the right (second in). The old lying down one is rare isn't it? Your's is in beautiful condition, congrats! I would love to have that one some day.

They're all made by Schleich (in fact, it should be the complete collection of all Schleich German shepherds made so far) - except for the third one from the left, which is a female German shepherd made by Papo.

They are all in mint, flawless conditions, because I personally picked (I'm a fussy collector tongue ) and bought each of them from shops when they were first made. The oldest model is the the 5th dog (from left), which was introduced in 1987 and discontinued in 1999. I bought her in the early '90s.

The second oldest is the lying dog (1994-2003) and the third oldest is the standing dog (2nd one from left), which was sold between 1999-2003.

Lovely Shepherds! All of them are great. I like the first one to the left a lot (the most recent female Schleich I think?) and the Papo Shepherd is also a favorite of mine.

You have a very beautiful kennel Very Happy

Will you expand your German shepherds collection to other brands ?

Could you show a pic of each model separately here with their name and years of production ?

Thanks. And yes, absolutely. In fact, I'm currently waiting for my first Safari German Shepherd. If the quality is good, I'll get the other Safari German shepherds as well. And I want to find out if other brands make size-compatible German shepherd figures. :) The more, the merrier!

I've always thought the newest Schleich German shepherd isn't as good as his predecessors. His proportions are a bit unnatural. Or maybe he needs to go on a diet. tongue

You've kept them in beautiful condition all these years, congrats. Unfortunetly any of the schleich my dad bought me back then was played with by us kids, so they have a few rubs.

Very nice collection of Germna Shepards!

What also is very interesting, is that everytime I compare a German Shepard with a Wolf, their characteristics come closer and closer, which results how wolfs domesticated in to dogs, hmm.

I take them from this change scheme:

Wolves --> Huskies --> Dingoes --> Shepards

Hmm, I think there is a pattern somewhere scratch Laughing

Hmm, actually the modern German shepherd is a fairly recent breed. Different herding dogs from Europe were used to establish the "German shepherd", combining their best characteristics. But yes, many of them had lupine (wolf-life) characteristics.

However, from a genetic point of view a Chihuahua is as close to wolves as a German shepherd. By contrast, from a mere morphological point of view, the dog breeds closest to wolves are breeds established using wolf-dog hybrids, such as the Czechoslovakian wolfhound, the Italian Wolfdog, the Chinese Kunming dog, etc. These dogs actually have "wolf" blood in them, even if now it is very diluted. Wink

Interestingly enough, there's also a theory, not widely accepted, according to which dogs did not evolve from wolves but from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (Asian wild dogs).

The most widely accepted theory about dingos, nowadays, is that they were once domesticated dogs who at some point became feral.

Congratulations for your new dogs! Very Happy
forgeting a little genetics, in Portugal shephards are popularly known as wolf breed, it means that people here found it also similar to a wolf even if it is only superficially. Very Happy
I think Tylo, as a collector of wolves, is studying the hypothesis of collecting shepherds and huskies! Laughing
