Default Need some help

Hi

Im from the UK and i recently bought a puppy. Just need some help. My last german shepherd (who i got 25 years ago now), was from strong british show lines, a lot of titled dogs in his pedirgee (including the sire). He was easily trained, very loyal, protective over the kids so on.

So my new puppy, (Zeus), was born of a pure white dam and a black/tan sire. I recieved papers for the dam but not the sire. Cant find the dam on the pedigree database. But looking into the dams 5 generation papers, her lineage is pure white GSD's. The sire was just a normal pet GSD, with no 5th generation papers. Zeus is black/tan and looks as if he's going to be longhaired. Just really wanted to know what kind of sport i should pursue with him, IPO/SCHZ, agility, tracking? We are also looking into therepy work. I am just wondering what everyones opions are? And weather anyone has had a puppy with similar lines?

Thanks in advance.

Pursue whatever you want to with him. No reason to let his lines limit you. See what you like.

I agree with xeph, find a sport or thing you like and then research to get your pup into it! Your breeder should be able to help with recommendations based on what they know about their dogs.

Therapy dog work is wonderful. If you do IPO/Sch you may want to find a club now and have him evaluated.

Have fun with him and where are the pictures???

Don't put too much stock into the pedigree to point you in the direction of the sport. Pick one you like to do. Most people fail at a sport not because their dog can't do it, but because they're not willing to put in the time to do it.

You'll probably end up with a LC Black and Tan.

Is he not registered then? if not in the UK you will be limited what you can do, if you dont have reg papers for him you can put him on the activity register although you to compete in agility, obedience etc, re therapy if this is what you wish to do you need to put the ground work in now
re colour he is likely to be black with paling tan

To be honest, looking at it now we got him from a BYB, when we got him at 7 weeks he weighed 2kg (4 pounds)
