What are the differences?
What are the differences between the West German and East German, German Shepherds? Also, what are the main differences and similarities between the lines of Shepherds? Specifically DDR and the other one (forgot what it was called but it's very frequently associated with this one).

Thanks for any replies, when I get a GSD, I want an import, and that's the only reason I ask.

None that a novice handler or dog owner would notice. I chalk most of the differences up to different lines within those divisions, or even the particular dog's personality.
