Also known as the Alsatian Shepalute.
This breed was previously known as the Alsatian Shepalute. The breed name was officially changed by the board of the National American Alsatian Club on September 21, 2009.
The American Alsatian comes from the United States and was originally bred as a companion dog. Its origins date back to 1987. The American Alsatian was also previously known as the North American Shepalute and subsequently the Alsatian Shepalute. The advent of the dual income family prompted a need for a large breed of dog without working traits. The mellow and calm temperament of the American Alsatian allows it to be best suited for work as a therapy dog.
The American Alsatian was bred as a companion breed but should always be properly exercised. Most owners choose to walk this breed at least an hour a day. Without exercise, the American Alsatian will become hyper active and possibly descriptive.
The American Alsatian can live in apartment with the proper exersise.
