The Central or East German Fox is one of three colors of the East or Central German herding dogs. With the Central German Shepherd Dogs, the foxes can also be paired with the other two colors, the black and yellow cheeks, and can appear together in one litter. The Middle German Fox is a well-proportioned, muscular dog with a square body but more delicate than South German Old Germans. The skull is not too wide with a well developed stop . The ears are of medium size, forming a triangle and usually standing; Tipped ears can occur. He is a persevering worker, because of his scissor bite he can grip ribs or clubs.
