    Mr. bhaishab, sir.
    I just want to know the meaning of "tall at the shoulder" when you talk about the height of animals.
    I just copied the given sentence while googling "tall at the shoulder".

    Maybe upper part of the front legs? That's just my thought.

    Thank you for the graphic, sir, but I'm still quite uncertain.

    Re: Please help me with this one sentence.

    Right, giddyman, so the context is the height of animals — in this case a German shepherd dog, or Alsatian'.

    My first reaction was that the average shepherd would be about five foot six at the shoulders, but that's a guy who looks after sheep.

    Please note that a better title would have been Tall at the shoulders.

    I don't know how to change the title. Sorry, Mr. Rover_KE.
