I look at Grief in many ways like I look at Fero. He was a dog that needed to be balanced to maintain the nerves. When crossed with lines that were not as strong you could see the nerve coming through. This is true with most dogs, of course. My first GSD was a Grief granddaughter and was a tremendous dog and the way a GSD should be. I also trained with a Grief son, some grandkids and greatgrandkids (through a Sagus son). Some of these were not so stellar in temperament. My first schutzhund was 4,4-4 on Grief through Mink and she again was a super solid dog, but like my first GSD, Tara, the breeder knew what he was doing.

For those that like looking at pedigrees. Like Mink, Tara combined the Lierbergs with Grief (along with some other old stuff). The site says she was not linebred, but she was actually linebred on Fello and Bernd Lierberg.

And my first schutzhund, Treue. Treue also had a number of lines back on VA Bert v. Haus Knüfken who was a good source of old working blood. Mink is there and then Treue also added in Urs Hopfenstraße (nerves) and Grischa schwarzen Milan (who also produced excellent nerves).

Thank you for the post Lisa. I particularly appreciate the comment on dogs known for producing good nerve. Most of the time when nerve is discussed, it is in the context of a lack of nerve strength and then such discussions tend to involve generalities rather than specifics. A thread discussing dogs known for producing good nerve would be interesting . . . .
