All I can tell is that her elbows and hips have a chance to be normal, 3/4 grandparents are SchH3 dogs and that's about it, even though neither of those points make much sense to me.
So on that note, if you don't mind recommending, what is a good source to start at to begin reading and learning about bloodlines, pedigrees, and all that good stuff that you all spit out like it's common fact and confuse me so much about?
Ever since I brought my dog home, I have had an itching to learn so much more about the breed. Finding a good book on GSD seems tough to find and there are so many opinions on this, in fact I have yet to find a book specifically on pedigrees and a decent one on the history of the GSD.
My male Hunter is half brother to Voxi, son of Irmhild v. d. Staatsmacht. I can help you with understanding Hilde's side of the pedigree. Hilde is daughter of Staatsmacht kennel's foundation female, Orla. Orla was a wonderful producer of sport dogs.
Voxi's father Athos is an incredible male, probably my favourite male to date. He is everything I love in a dog (from what I have seen). I have also made myself very familiar with his pedigree since I am getting a daughter out of Athos within a year.
I am happy to chat with you about these pedigrees, since Athos and Hilde are part of my dog family... please feel free to PM me or ask questions here.
