This is my GSD. Looks a little like a Malinois, but I assure you she is pure-bred GSD from East-German working lines.

She turns three this month, and weighs about 75 pounds.







We had to put this guy down this summer. He was a rescue, but was at least 13 years, so minus the nine months he spent on the streets, he had a good life:

I have to say, I generally love the black/tan or black/reddish tan colors, but a full black and a full white does look pretty cool.

I must admit

Not a single poster in here has a bad representation of the breed.

All are good size with decent looking hips from what I can tell through pics. Hip dysplacia(sp) is not a great experience

I will try and get some pics of my dads dog if I can find them.

A lot of the MWDs ive seen experience hip dysplacia. They are hard workers but are well taken care of. Sometimes dogs just get old and get it. They have a hard time staying in the sit position and will break and not stay especially if they are stressed in an exercise or in a real world experience. Its sad but they are still great little guys to work with.

Thank you very much. She is my pride and joy. And the shots are just for fun. I usually shoot people, but I do enjoy shooting animals as well. Just gotten lucky.

I was just wondering, but where in Chicago are you training for Schutzhund? I'm just outside in the suburbs and had thought about either schutzhund or agility for my shepherd. Haven't done too much research into it yet though. I'm hoping I can start her on one or the other this summer.

Here are my 2. Lexi is the white one. Archibald is the black one. I have had Lexi since 9 weeks old. Arch was a rescue. He was abandoned as a puppy and we got him when he was around 6 months. He is about 1 now. He will always be a little scrawny. He only weighs about 60lbs.

I was checking out their site, and while the dogs do look beautiful, I don't think I can own an AKC/American style german shepherd again. Their hindquarters are so bad in my opinion, and much more prone to hip dysplasia. My grandparents only had German Shepherds and the American style ones, almost always had it. I remember two dogs, Jake and Elsa, who had it so badly they couldn't walk at the end. Might have been simply luck of the draw, but it was enough for me to say no more to the American lines.

My grandmother on the other side had a purebread from German lines, with the squarer hindquarters, and she was beautiful, without any hip problems before she passed away last year. She was, however, the smallest GSD that I've ever seen. I'll try and grab a pic of her next time I see my grandmother.

They are strictly pure German working blood lines with SV cert/recognition at Regis Regal (as stated in my original post with the pics of my new pup. Got the pedigree to prove it). None of that tainted american blood. The AKC cert is just a plus. Doesn't mean much anymore, it's the SV one that counts. So you won't have an issue. SV cert's hips at 9 months compared to the AKC at 2 years if I remember correctly. And a ton of people don't realize dysplasia is quite frequently owner caused. A few preventative measures when they're a pup and you can reduce even American blood dysplasia by 90%. But again, not an issue with a German working blood line. But hey, a german blood line isn't for everyone.

Edit: if that came off as harsh, my apologies, just know my pups and am very passionate about them.

I have never once heard that it was the owners fault/could greatly prevent it, you seem to know what you are talking about though. Any sources of information you have off hand so I could read up on it?

Let me correct myself a little. The 90% i gave is in terms of developmental dysplasia in comparision to genetic. I can attempt to track down the readings again no problem. It's simple things for the most part. Preventing unnessicary stress on the hips. A number of the breeders I have worked with advocate no stairs till 4-5months of age. Same goes with jumping in and out of cars and the like. Same case with play time as well with other dogs(one wrong toss/roll/etc can throw something out of whack). It's all a matter of protection for the most part, as full hip/joint development occurs over time just like with humans.

But as always, there are genetic cases as well. American blood lines tend to have a higher rate. It comes down to a strict matter of breeding. For AKC cert, all the dog needs is to be pure bred shepherd. Compared to The SV having very strict guidelines (inspections, etc.) to breeding.

But in the end it all comes down to what a person is looking for in a dog. You don't need to spend the extra grand because of blood on a pup. Some prefer it, but it isn't a nessesity.

At first German Shepherds are "serious business":
