Do GSDs have different intestines?

This qn may sound weird, but it's genuine.

Today I heard from someone (whose English can be a bit hard to understand at times so I may have misunderstood) that she saw an xray of a GSD, and the GSD's intestines(?) looked different from other dogs' xrays. (She works at a vet).

She says this accounts for the GSD's sensitive stomach compared to other dogs.

Also, that there was a diff between W German GSD and E German GSD line's stomachs.

Now, if we're talking bone structure I can understand a bit, because maybe it's like how show dogs may have slightly sloping backs. But she was talking about intestines and sensitive stomachs here.

Anyone knows if this is a fact?
