[QUOTE=LukasGSD;2446185]True Haus is an excellent breeder, I recomend them. I got my boy Jaxon from them out of Tommy and Cat. He has great drive and an excellent temperament.

These dogs are in stacks. That is not how they look when standing normally - even still these are NOT extreme at all. Example (though not the best)


Wow great looking dog!

The Dan's paternal line has some V rated working line dogs that certainly appear "roachy."

I'm not seeing it... at least nothing in comparison with German showlines, which do look "roachy" to me.

I hope you are looking for a tough high drive dog that may have a very hard temperment. If this is what you want go for it. Great working lines IMO. Be prepared to put some WORK into training. I say this because the dog will DEMAND it from you. This is not a pet line by any stretch of the imagination. I would buy a pup from this breeding in a heart beat if I was in the market and was offered the opportunitiy. Good luck!

I forgot to mention that this is a line breeding 3 - 4 on Nick H. Nick is known for producing great working dogs. Very tough dogs.

Everyone has been so helpful. Thank you all very much. I am completely sold on one of their dogs. Very pleased to know some of you have been so happy with true haus.

Overall, looks like a nice breeding. 5-5 on Yoschy who is known for producing tough dogs. The dam goes back to lines we are very familiar (and happy) with around here. Love Tom van't Leefdaalhof, and Cliff is known for producing solid temperament. The sire's side goes back to Arek, Half, Ork and Mink all very well known dogs, kind of the hall of fame of working line dogs. (we owned an Arek daughter who is probably our favorite girl of all time). I think I counted 11 BSP and WUSV participants in the first 4 generations.
On paper isn't the be all end all, but it is a good start to getting an idea of what is being produced.
Personally I would be pretty pumped if getting a pup from this breeding. If you can meet the dam and like her overall demeanor then go for it!
Talk to the breeder, tell them what you are looking for, what you hope to do and see what they say. This breeding looks very well thought out, so I'm pretty confident the breeder will want to hear it from you.

Very true. Also, Jim and Cindy chose my dog for me as I could not meet them in person, I don't think they would give you a dog that would be "too much" so long as you tell them what you are looking for.

But that's just me.
Unfortunately, one has to consider the quality and type of picture before really saying what the dogs' toplines are like. For example, the PDB site picture of the sire is the "professional" picture taken in Germany, and I'd bet dollars to donuts that his topline has been photoshopped to match some "template" of what the photographer thinks the topline should look like...



The picture of the mom is also taken in Europe... and the handler's knee is pressing down on her back to make her hips look lower....



Very frustrating because you don't know what sort of construction these dogs have based on these pictures... which is the whole idea behind having a typical stack position for the breed--so one can see what the dog's conformation is like.

I look forward to the day when people stop stacking and photographing dogs with a knee on their back/thigh and stop photoshopping toplines to match some odd template.
