How to Draw a German Shepherd Puppy, German Shepherd Puppy

Step 1.

Draw a circle for the dogs head and then make one face guide like you see here.

Step 2.

For the next drawing step all you will have to do is draw in the lining that forms the mouth and lips. Make sure that the dog has it's tongue hanging out and there is a couple teeth.

Step 3.

The shape and style of a German shepherds head is very distinct. You will begin by drawing out the head, and then draw the pointed long ears that this breed is known for.

Step 4.

I wanted to try and make the eyes resemble the GS the best I knew how for a cartoon like drawing. I ended up actually making the eyes of the GS and they look expressive just like my dog. Draw two egg shapes and then draw in the triangles in the center of each ear. Draw the nose tip as well as the nostril holes, and then lastly sketch in the wrinkle on the snout.

Step 5.

Now that the head and face is complete, we can start working on getting the body drawn out starting with the chest, and front legs. To make this shepherd super cute, I wanted to draw him/her standing with its paws facing inward. It's kind of like an innocent stance for a dog.

Step 6.

Now you can draw out the back legs and some of the visible stomach. Don't forget to draw the back paws too, this is very important. Add the toe lines and move to the last drawing step.

Step 7.

Now all that's left to complete this breed is to draw in the bushy tail. When that is all done you can start erasing the guides and messy lines that you may have to clean up.

Step 8.

Here is what your puppy should come out looking like when you are all done. Now all you have to do is color in the dog and here is where you can use any shade you like. As you know German shepherds come in different colors like black and silver, black and brown, black and tan, black and red, all black, sable, and even all brownish tan, oh yeah lets not forget all white too. I hope you had fun guys, and I bet you did a great job.

I can’t believe how much everyone loved the husky puppy I submitted, but then again I can see why folks would fall in love with a husky pup. I mean look how adorable they are. Now because the Husky did so well, I found two other large dog breeds that are absolutely adorable looking when they are pups. The first tutorial of the day is going to be on "how to draw a German shepherd puppy", step by step. German shepherds are so cute when they are little and they are also very funny. I have a German shepherd now, but last year we had two shepherds and one of them had pups. They look like small bats when they are first born, and as they get older, their ears start getting bigger. Then their personalities really start to shine. Another reason why I wanted to make a German shepherd puppy lesson is because I think we might be getting another pup in a few weeks. I hope we do, but if we don’t at least I have one cool GS that is amazing. Anyways I hope you like learning "how to draw a German shepherd puppy"; I think it came out cute. The lesson is going to be just as simple as the Husky so no worries there. Peace out and remain calm.
