As far as how to tell the lines, the only way to know for sure is to know the kennel names of the breeders, what country they come from, and what line they breed. Registration numbers can also indicate the country in which a dog was born, but that won't necessarily provide much information about what line the dog is from. Dogs in the US are AKC registered, and that includes dogs of working lines, American show lines, American pet lines, German show lines, BYBs, etc... Language can provide a clue too. If the names are American sounding, they're probably American lines. If the names are in German they may be German lines, but that still won't say if they're German show or working. So the only foolproof way to know what line, or mix of lines, a dog is from is to know the kennels.
