King Shepherds - 140lbs of fucking dog
    #18657491 - 08/04/13 08:30 AM (4 years, 3 months ago)

SO I was reading this other forum about german shepherds (we just put ours to sleep last week and to make myself feel better I was looking at pictures of them)

Then someone was talking about King Shepherds. Fuck me. What awesome fucking specimens. 140lbs of pure fucking dog. I want one so bad. I've set myself on it if I ever get a place with some good sized land out in the country i'n going to all ends to get one. Up to $3k for a good puppy. But worth every fucking penny I'd imagine. Probably means I'd have to get it from a breeder in the US and I don't even know if that's possible.

yeah for sure. That doesn't really bother me too much though. You could train them up to be the best guard/protection dogs evar and still have awesome sweet loyal doge

Beautiful!

I like the darker ones, so long as they have a bit of tan in them.

Here is a fucking amazing looking dog, I can't link the pictures straight up.

This one isn't massive but he's certainly a good looking beast

I think massive dogs are kewl, but when you're looking at 120+ lbs you're also looking at a shorter life span, and idk if I'm so cool with that, my current dogs are golden retrievers and are 9 and 10 both very lively and happy still, but it sucks to know that I'm gonna be missing them in <5ish years - they've grown up with me :-(.


I would love one of these though...waaaay out of my price range.

German Shepards and Labs are my favorite, only like big dogs the small ones are pissy and irritating

Was thinking recently it would be cool to have a cat the size of a German Shepard, would be pretty badass for guarding the house

Man that is one hell of a dog. I love big dogs. Wrestling with them is so much fun, its hilarious when they can tackle YOU to the ground and not the other way around :lol:

Man, they eat and shit like horses though. Be prepared to see that dog eat faster than anything you've ever seen before. :rofl:

The life span of a king shepherd is the same as a normal germAn shepherd: about 11 years

I don't see anything different about the dogs posted in OP. Idk maybe I'm just too fucked up to use the background shit as a size comparison but they seem like normal german sheperds to me :shrug:

I think part of it is that people put less effort into training certain dogs. A lot of people with small dogs don't train them not to act like assholes because they figure they don't have to. My neighbor has a mini pinscher that acts like a total asshole, if a full sized doberman got loose and acted that way then people would be calling the cops. With a giant dog I guess people often put off training it and then give up once it's so big it can overpower them (like that comic Marmaduke.)

Yeah, looking at the hips on those King Shepards, looks like they have hip problems.  They have a relatively short lifespan too, 10-11 years.

Yeeah I don't think that's it. :tongue:
Not all dogs are created equal.

Some dogs are easier to train, have a bigger brain, or were just bred to take commands.
I'm thinking of most 'work dogs'.  Australian cattle dogs, for instance, are a *delight* to train.

You never see a chihuahua / st bernard as a seeing eye dog, you know?

You claimed that big dogs all seemed stupid, and I offered an alternate explanation (lack of training.) A big German shepherd is probably of similar intelligence to a normal German shepherd I would think. Big dogs come from all different backgrounds so it doesn't make sense to assume they will all have comparable intelligence/trainability to other random unrelated big dogs.

Most big dogs are more prone to hip dysplasia.  You just have to find a good breeder with good bloodlines.  The King Shepherd is definitely a sweet dog!

No.

I said that bigger dog breeds, like very small breeds, do not seem to be as intelligent.

Breeds. Not size within breeds.


Do some research...

Quote:

#10 Dumbest: The Basset Hound may be so sad-eyed because it was ranked the tenth least intelligent dog breed.


#10 Smartest: The immensely trainable Australian Cattle Dog was called the tenth smartest breed. :thumbup:


#9 Dumbest: Don't tell the Westminster Kennel Club, but Uno, the beagle who won their 131st annual dog show, belongs to the ninth least intelligent dog breed.


4 of 20 : #9 Smartest: The Rottweiler was called the ninth smartest breed. This one looks a tad surprised by the ranking.


#8 Dumbest: This Mastiff hangs its head in shame over being ranked the eighth least intelligent dog breed.


#8 Smartest: The Papillon, ranked eighth smartest, floats like a butterfly and knows its ABC's.


#7 Dumbest: The Pekingese is more famous for its "dustmop" look when groomed correctly. This one must be getting a haircut to avoid being associated with the seventh stupidest dog breed.


#7 Smartest: The most popular dog breed in the nation is also the seventh smartest: the Labrador Retriever.


#6 Dumbest: We know the Bloodhound has a brain somewhere beneath all those lovable wrinkles, but the "Early Show" rankings had them pulling sixth among the dumbest breeds.


#6 Smartest: The Shetland Sheepdog's agility, as shown here, helped it rank sixth smartest.


#5 Dumbest: Borzois are considered the fifth least intelligent dogs.


#5 Smartest: The Doberman Pinscher's intelligence is on full display here on a rescue mission.


#4 Dumbest: This Chow Chow can live with being considered the fourth least intelligent breed, so long as you keep its hair nice and fluffy.


#4 Smartest: Golden Retrievers were fourth on the list of smart dogs.


#3 Dumbest: The Bulldog was rated the third stupidest dog breed.


#3 Smartest: Loyal workhorses, the German Shepherds were ranked as the third smartest breed.


#2 Dumbest: The Basenji is considered the second least intelligent dog breed, but hey, it could be worse.


#2 Smartest: Love 'em or hate 'em, Poodles were ranked as the second smartest dog breed out there.


#1 Dumbest: Stylish and mysteriously ancient, the Afghan Hound nonetheless merits the dubious honor of being ranked the single least intelligent dog breed.


#1 Smartest: The Border Collie was ranked the single smartest dog breed.




You never see chihuahuas or st bernards at obedience trials. Nevvverrrrr.... :elmo:

My buddy had a giant shepherd that just passed away, Sammy.  I'm not sure if it was a king shepherd but I wouldn't be surprised if it was, it probably weighed somewhere around 140lb.

  The dog was fucking huge, and very people friendly.  It had it's own bed which was a twin size, and they regularly fed it egg sandwiches in the morning.  Very spoiled dog.

  I was driving by his place one day with a friend and talking about Sammy.  I'm like "you ought to see this giant ass german shepherd my friend has."  My buddy points out the window,"did it look like that giant over there?"  Sammy was just taking a stroll around the neighborhood by himself.  I walk up to the dog call his name hoping sincerely that he remembered me and didnt see me as a threat.  I grabbed him by the collar and led him back to my buddies house.  Apparently the dog would regularly open up the front door (as well as the screen door) and just go for a walk.

On his door knob there were two dents from where the dogs teeth had been after somebody who wasn't welcome tried opening the door.

What are you talking about?  Nobody said that breed was not correlated with intelligence, we said the size of the breed has no correlation with intelligence.

Yeah, how about a link that says that King German Shepherds are significantly stupider than regular German Shepherds.

Have you seen a st bernard as a seeing eye dog?
Have you seen a chihuahua? I rest my case.  :pizza:

I think part of it is that people put less effort into training certain dogs. A lot of people with small dogs don't train them not to act like assholes because they figure they don't have to. My neighbor has a mini pinscher that acts like a total asshole, if a full sized doberman got loose and acted that way then people would be calling the cops. With a giant dog I guess people often put off training it and then give up once it's so big it can overpower them (like that comic Marmaduke.)

Some dog breeds are easier to train, have a bigger brain, or were just bred to take commands.
I'm thinking of most 'work dogs'.  Australian cattle dogs, for instance, are a *delight* to train.

You never see a chihuahua / st bernard as a seeing eye dog, you know?

Yeah, looking at the hips on those King Shepards, looks like they have hip problems.  They have a relatively short lifespan too, 10-11 years.



Most big dogs are more prone to hip dysplasia.  You just have to find a good breeder with good bloodlines.  The King Shepherd is definitely a sweet dog!



we had a german shepard growing up and she had hip problems towards the end of her life. it was pretty sad seeing her struggle getting up the stairs. such a good dog, RIP sheba.

sorry about your dog OP, we had to put my shepard down too.

You haven't posted anything at all showing that King German Shepherds are any stupider than normal German Shepherds. Whether or not St Bernards are stupid has nothing to do with it really.

OldHam, those stats are considered obedience intelligence levels.  Currently there is no way to rank the true intelligence of a dog (what it can comprehend and not comprehend in its own realm of thought), however we can rank how well they behave or respond to training and how obedient they are.  Not sure if obedience truly determines intelligence though hehe.

Oh, and I'm sure the King Shepard breed are sweet dogs, just wanted to point out you may be spending more money in health care for your dog in the long run, and he might not live to be very old (10-11yo instead of 14-15yo)

German Shepherds tend to be ranked very high on those kinds of lists anyway. If breeding a larger version reduced intelligence/trainability by a large amount I would be a little surprised.

According to the breeders king shepherds being so large absolutely thrive on rigorous training and crave challenges. These are dogs used by the military and police in elite k9 units as search and rescue, bomb detection, attack/intomidTion And protection. They live the same amount of tine as a normAl german shepherd which is about 11 years. There are breeders who put emphasis on breeding better and healthir dogs every grneration and puthe dogs through xrAys to test for hip condition before breeding

We have a doberman, she is thick as shit but a real sweetheart. Also have a fox terrier which is equLly as spastic but still amusing. I am not a fan of the irish wolfhounds or greyhounds, ive grown up with shepherds and find them to be the mos beautiful dogs to me and very personAble. I don really give a fuck if they arent absolutely top lf the list for "intelligence" (whatever that means) my grandma was a registered and highly regarded breeder for top pedigree golden retrievers, i love those dogs too maybe id get one as a buddy for a shepherd

In terms of space youd have to be a fucking asshole to get a big dog if you only had a small backyard. These things need room to run. Our dogs dont even so much as wear a collar and theyv NEVER strayed off the property (120 acres) Slme people just have no idea as to how to raise dogs. Half an hour exercise a dAy  of light walking if theyve been cooped up all day just doesn cut it.

Also a lot of people have bad misconceptions about big dogs being dumb or aggressivve but no more than any other dog if treated with love and taught how to behave and is well socialised with people, kids and other dogs

In my dreams id get two of these king shepherds, siblings and i wouldnt need human company ever again

It's generally been my experience that those little anklebiters are the ones to watch out for. They get all vicious and people are just like, aww, how cute. They're as useless as a limp dick in a whorehouse. I mean when my 90lb dog, who is very well trained, barks at strangers for entering his yard without me, they usually start making threats or tell me to put him in a cage or wtfe... It's prejudice.

3 or 4 weeks ago I had one guy try to walk through my back yard to the back door out of the fucking blue. Only met this dude like one time, maybe a year ago, so random. Anyways he pulled a knife on my dog because he couldn't get through the gate, hollering "get this dog away from me or I'll kill it!" WTF? Lol, good luck first of all, and that dog's lived here for 6 years... He has more of a right to be here than some strange dude, ya know...?

My experience with tiny frufru dogs has been without exception negative

So the guy trying to break into your house threatened your dog?
What a piece of shit

I'm adopting a German Shepard mix from a friend in a few days. He's 6months old, super cute, and really smart.
I'm excited to say the least

I'm stupid, Falcon91Wolvrn03 is smart.
I'm ugly, Falcon91Wolvrn03 is beautiful.
I'm a loser, Falcon91Wolvrn03 is a winner.
Someday, I hope to be like Falcon91Wolvrn03 but secretly know I never will.

Yeah genetics does play into it but a lot is lack of training. People get small dogs and figure they don't have to train them not to be assholes because they're small and it's "cute" when they act like they're big and mean. My neighbor's mini pinscher flips the fuck out on me when she gets into my yard, as if I shouldn't be there. If it was a normal sized dog I would be pissed, but with a tiny little runt it's just an annoyance.

no I don't think he was going to break in, but seriously who goes to someone's house and tries to knock on the BACK door? and then throws a fit when the dog doesn't let him in? It just really tripped me out that a person could do that.
