Derived from the old breeds of herding and farm dogs, and associated for centuries with man as servant and companion, the German Shepherd Dog has been subject to intensive development. Sponsored by the Verein fur Deutsche Schaferhunde, the parent club of the breed founded in 1899 in Germany, the cult of the Shepherd spread rapidly from about 1914 onward in many parts of the world. ( and OH that sweet face!!)
“Löwin” means lioness in German. It is related to the Chronicles of Narnia quote: if you were any braver, you’d be a lioness. It reminds my on my tough time during my stay in the US & that I stayed brave & strong till the end, I got the tattoo on my last weekend there.
