At 26 inches high,the Alsatian is about as high as the greats.
At up to 43 kg it is to all intents and purposes large and capable.
With good training,it can offset the size advantage of greats like the Boerboel and Bull Mastiff.

Black & red, Black & tan, Black & cream, Black & sliver, Black (solid black), Sable (Gray), Blue, Liver, and White.
