Day 54:

German Shepherd aka Alsatians

In 1977, the name Alsatians was changed back to German Shepherd Dogs

- The association with Germany was unpopular following the World wars and the breed was therefore given the name of the Alsatian Wolf Dog after the German-French border area of Alsace-Lorraine
