Default Bear's Pedigree...

Someone told me you can tell if your dog has East German lines or west german lines from their pedigree... Is this true? How do you tell?

from the dogs posted on your pedigree link, I see only american lined dogs. Maybe if you go farther back you might find some german dogs but the ones you posted are not east or west.

Your dog is line bred on a dog (Valiantdale's boss Von Icom) that goes back to some DDR (East German) about 8 generations behind your dog.

So Yes, your dog does have some East German in there. You can tell by expanding the pedigree in pedigreedatabase to see what is behind the first couple of generations that are showing.

But how can you tell on the pedigree if they're American or German? Does it say it some where?

When you see the letters "DDR" which stands for Deutsche Demokratische Republik; that meas East German. I would not call your dog DDR though. The DDR has be diluted over many generations.

Yeah... mostly american show lines with DDR way back. The DDR dog (which has some American lines in him as well) is your dogs great great great grandfather on one side and great great great grandfather on the other, so it's pretty far back. Your dog would be pretty much considered American bred.

The DDR dog is from working lines, but there's no such thing as American working lines.
