I've noticed that most of the dogs that are listed on the L.A. County dog adoption pages fall into a handful of categories, one of which is inevitably "shepherd." I'm sure that a lot of the dogs are crazy mixed breeds, and you can never know for sure exactly what you're getting when you adopt one, but that's half the fun. Arthur was labeled "collie/terrier" initially.
Anyway, there are a lot of "shepherds," and they all look great.
