What beautiful dogs!

I thought Alsatians were something different? Close but not exactly the same as GSDs.

We Yanks do call them German Shepherds, anyway. But they have been overbred from bad lines here, so all too many of them have bad hips and bad dispositions. Our town's K-9 "officers" are imported from Germany in order to get around those problems.

Do the dogs interact with the turtle at all, or would that be too risky (not sure how big your RES is)?

Only had the turtle for a few hours so no interaction as yet, but due to the fact he is only a hatchling we wont be encouraging any interaction.

Alsatians and GS are exactly the same thing, however around the end of world war 2, german was a dirty word so they changed their name to make them seem more desirable?!
