Dont recognize any names. I dont know American show lines. You have to go way back in the pedigree to see any dog of substance. After a google search on KCR, I think that is an UK registry. There is a blk & red bitch back there that is probably West German Showlines, but I didnt search that dog in the database. Didnt find the parents on OFA, so no health testing done. And breeding to a red saddle back sable that is considered a 'fault' by the breed standard.
The German Shepherd Dog varies in color, and most colors are permissible. Strong rich colors are preferred. Pale, washed-out colors and blues or livers are serious faults. A white dog must be disqualified"
Now looking at it again. Thinking maybe not American show lines but originally came from some working lines with show in there as well, but now a mish mosh of pet (like you stated) with no thought put in to the breedings. Without any thought put in, you cant predict what you might get. When dogs with similar traits are bred, you increase your chances of getting those traits in the puppies. Its simple science.
