All dogs are amazing and devoted to their owners, but German Shepherds are well-known for being devoted companions who form tight bonds with their owners. Nothing brings them more joy than being by their owner’s side. They are constantly on the alert for the people they care about as herding dogs.
Herders are born with the impulse to lead their flock. This includes the capacity to guide the movement of other animals and humans, which is why they like leading the way on walks with their owners. Herding dogs have a very natural tendency of watching and leading. That’s why, when this stunning German Shepherd and his owner go for a walk, he’s a bit ahead of them, ambling along the sidewalk, fully enjoying their stroll.
The astonished puppy glances back and forth again to determine if his owner has gone missing, then quickly begins to retrace his steps, clearly frightened about his sudden change in circumstances. He comes to a halt and looks behind him, expecting to see his owner, but…wait…what? His human companion is nowhere to be seen. The puppy appears to be taken aback.
It’s painful to see him halt and look back the way he came to a couple of times. The dog is clearly concerned and confused about what to do, so he retraces his steps back to where he began.
Just when we think we’ve seen it all, he catches his owner lying behind a tree, documenting the entire thing. The puppy, of course, is pleased, and he begins to wag his tail and brighten up his sad tiny ears. His owner is laughing, but we imagine the dog is thinking, “This isn’t so funny, don’t make fun of me!”
