GusGus, don't worry about the line. whatever line you want her
to be is the line. it's really good for conversation if you add wolf.
when i look at your dog i see "top of the line".

American pet lines..Onyx is from the same 'type' structure and her brother looks much like your Gus. Large ear set, smaller head and the same body type.
Onyx supposedly has some East German mixed in on her mothers side, but I've never gotten proof of her lineage. Both supposedly had AKC papers, but I'm sure she's a mishmash of lines.
Out of curiosity, what is Gus's height/weight?

He was 73 pounds when I took him to the vet last (he was I'll and hadn't eaten in over 24 hours if that makes a difference) annum not sure how tall..25-26"?

I'd say BYB with predominantly American show lines.

I was wondering if I can pop up the same question also? I have my Delilah and wondering this pedigree matter and keep asking my self from where she maybe in that list..
Honestly I spend most of my free time reading all the post in this thread but still my mind cannot understand all the topic about bloodlines and pedigree matter..
This is my first time to have a dog and instantly a GSD one, I want to know more about her but I just have a paper of her medical clearance..
Here are some picture of her.
Her arrival

It is harder to tell with puppies, they are all cute! And they change so much! For a complete guess, I would say West German Showlines (mostly), based on the rich colour of her tan.

Do you have the registered names of the parents? Or any info on the breeders? Do they have a website? Where did you buy Delilah from? Was she and/or her parents an import? (from - to?)
