the breed is not dying out - no problems with availability.

what is dying out is the conservation of particular heritage groups , and particular working instincts and drives

hip dysplasia is a complex issue.

published in Das Schaferhund Magazin --- which , very article I read this morning - talk about timing ! authored by Mike Guillard MA VetMB CertSAO MRCVS , in German the title was Die abfallende Ruckenlinie . Ist sie schadlich ?

Here it is in full with translation . *Sloping topline. Is it detrimental?

working GSD in Ireland I can't comment on , but there are a few that I know in the UK . You can reference this forum link UK workinglines?
