The German Indian Dog has a very wide Variety of Colors and coat length. Ranging from Black Sable, Chocolate, Silver, Yellow, Orange, Red, Black, White and sometimes even being a color that you have a hard time determining what color it really is.

No German Indian Dog should be crated or caged in a small confined space, they do not respond well to it and see it as a Punishment. They also should not be confined to a certain room in your Home, this will only bring out bad behavior from this breed. These Dogs are Not couch potatoes that just lay around, they are beyond Smart and need a Job to do and the World to explore.
German Indian Dogs are very Soulful Dogs that think more like a Human than a Dog and this Thinking is what can make it some what difficult to adjust in a new Home for the first few days. Native American Indian Dogs and German Indian Dogs look at a situation and analyze it...they "Think" unlike most other Dogs about things.
Lots of disinformation on the German Indian Dog and Native American Indian Dog out there on the Web. I'm here to set a few things straight. Most who talk about these Breeds know nothing of them. I read things that people say and just shake my head in disgust, they have no idea what they are talking about. Most of the info out there is from someone who doesn't even own one or never even met one. Sometimes it's from someone that has one and only one, now they are an Expert on the Native American Indian Dog or German Indian Dog.
I get asked what's the difference in the German Indian Dog vs Shalom Shepherd, the answer is it's the same Dog, but the German Indian Dog was created first and named German Indian Dog several years before the Shalom Shepherd.
6 Working Dogs are in the Genetic make up of the German Indian Dog, with the majority being Sled Dogs, Snow Rescue, Water Rescue and the German Shepherd being The all around working Dog, from Hearding, K-9, Military, Search and Rescue, Seeing Eye Dog ect..
I have been a huge fan of the German Shepherd Dog all my Life. When I first started Breeding Dogs, the German Shepherd was my first Breed to buy for Breeding. I Love every single thing about them, their Loyalty, their Trainability, their recall to come when called in any situation, the fact that they would rather be at your side than running down the street to play with the neighbors Dog ect.... When you take a Great Breed like the German Shepherd and add it to the Native American Indian Dog, now you have a Dog that is much more trainable than a full NAID. The Native American Indian Dog is even more Hypoallergenic than a Poodle, so with adding some German Shepherd, you still have a Hypoallergenic Dog and we Guarantee it in writing.
The German Indian Dog is not a little House Dog, it's a Dog that thrives outdoors hiking, playing in streams and lakes, running on a beach, meeting other dogs as much as possible. German Indian Dogs really need another Dog in the Home to Fully be Happy. The German Indian Dog can have separation anxiety when left alone due to the bond it forms with its Family.
Understanding Your German Indian Dog
I feel it’s important to understand what Breeds are in the German Indian Dog so you can better understand somethings that your Puppy will be doing. I want each German Indian Dog to be known as a German Indian Dog, but I feel it’s important to understand why he/she might be acting a certain way.

Now that you know what makes up your German Indian Dog you might understand the Breed a little better. Here’s a list of things your Puppy might do that drives you crazy or you just don’t understand. Maybe your having a hard time training him not to do a certain something. I hope you can now see why he might be doing this, it’s simply what he was bred to do and you can’t take that out of him no matter how much you try. He is not a House Dog Yorkie.
Digging in his water then laying in it.
He Loves getting wet because it makes him colder and watch a video of a Newfoundland doing water rescue, they love water and are excellent swimmers.
Doesn’t leash the best without Training, feels the urge to pull.
Look at the cart and sled pullers in this breed and understand several of the breeds in its makeup are bred to pull.
Loves laying in the snow all day and will not listen when called to come inside.
Look at the Northern Breeds that are in the German Indian Dog, it’s what they Thrive in is Ice Cold temps.
Digs holes in your Yard.
Northern Breeds will dig a big hole and hunker down for the blizzard, most of them will not even use a Dog House, they just weather out the storm laying on the ground.
Runs and doesn’t come when called as good as you like.
The German Indian Dog has several runners in the breed makeup, let your Puppy/Dog be free to run as much as possible, it feels the need to be free and run. If you never let him be free and run, if he gets a chance to be free he will run as long as he can before coming back to you.
