Our popular German Shepherd Speed Shop design. Printed on a black cotton tee, with a light tan ink, it honors the heritage of the German Shepherd. The German words for German Shepherd are prominent in the design. The Phylax Society was originally formed to create that German Shepherd standard. The society was ultimately disbanded and the SV, the Verein für Deutsche Schäferhunde, was founded. The breed standard was set in 1899.
