A brief annotation The Working Dogs coin program celebrates the endearing qualities and characteristics of each dog breed and their unique contribution to specific occupational fields. The German Shepherd was originally developed for herding sheep. However, because of the loyalty, intelligence, strength and obedient nature of this breed, they are often employed by the police and military.
