.......so very very sad!
Sad but true.
What most pet owners don't realize is that they don't want a GSD, they want a puppet that looks like a GSD.
I don't see my WL GSDs in every pet home either. The solution is not water down the GSD, is for people to realize that this breed is not the one for them... no matter how much they like the looks.
