    An Alsatian is a breed of working dog known as a German Shepherd. The name Alsatian comes from the German French border area of Alsace-Lorraine. However, the original name for the breed was German Shepherd Dog. The British changed it to Alsatian Wolf Dog after World War I due to the negative connotation of the word "German" at that time.
