[Answer] 7. Which of these breeds of dogs is or has also been given the name "Alsatians"?

Step 1 : Introduction to the question "7. Which of these breeds of dogs is or has also been given the name "Alsatians"? "



...1. Spaniels 2. Great Danes 3. Mastiffs 4. German Shepherd Dogs During and after the First World War, anything German had fallen in disgrace in some parts of the world. For that reason the German shepherd dog was at least temporarily rebaptised: the Alsatian. This name was correct anyway as Alsatia (now mostly called Alsace) was the area where the breed had originated from. Only it was not at all times clear to everybody whether Alsatia was inside or outside Germany. By the way,rightly or wrongly, it has been claimed that this is the dog that bites humans most. Great Danes are not from Denmark by the way. They were bred in Germany for hunting wild boars. Nor are spaniels from Spain. The origin of the name spaniel seems to be related to French "espanir" and Italian "spaniare". Verbs that mean"to crouch", "to flatten". Cocker spaniels hunted for woodcocks. Springer spaniels flushed partridge, pheasants and hares. Originally mastiffs were used as dogs of war. Later they became watch-dogs. By the way in contrast to the name "Spaniel", the name "Pekinese" really suggests the correct origin. "Pekinese" dogs could only be kept at the Imperial Court and were kind of sacred. Their possession was forbidden for "non-royals". When in 1860 British and French troops overran the Summer Palace at Peking, the Imperial Guards got orders from the Emperor to kill his reputedly semi-divine "Pekinese dogs". A few escaped the slaughter, and were taken to Queen Victoria's Court. Peking is now known as Beijing.
