The Shiloh Shepherd is a breed of dog. Developed in the 1970s, they are meant to resemble an older variety of German Shepherd. Shilohs are not recognized by any major breed organization, but may be shown in some rare breed organizations such as RBCSWO or ARBA.Shilohs are generally larger and have a straighter back than most modern Shepherds; they are also bred for intelligence. Shilohs come in many colors, including black, white, tan, sable and cream. They also appear in bi-color or multi-color.
Shilohs compete in herding, obedience, protection and agility. They are also used as therapy dogs, search and rescue, livestock guardian, seizure alert and service assistance. Like many other Shepherds, Shilohs may have problems with bloat and hip dysplasia.
Bred as companions, Shilohs have loyal and outgoing personalities. They were developed to be gentle and loving, able to work with animals and children, while still possessing a trainable drive for particular working applications, such as assistive service, obedience, or herding. With proper socialization they adapt easily to many environments and are stable. Any form of extreme aggression or shyness is severely penalized per the breed standard.
