It's a positive way of saying "inbreeding". You'll have a hard time finding a GSD that *isn't* linebred to some degree, unless you breed for example an American Showline dog to an old East German line dog. That would be considered a total outcross, almost like mixing two different breeds.

Linebreeding definitely has its merits when done in an intelligent way. Basically, it concentrates genes, both good and bad. If the same dog appears on both sides of the pedigree, perhaps several times, you have to take a look at that dog. If it is an excellent working dog, rated excellent in conformation, with a good solid temperament and good hips, that linebreeding is generally regarded as a good thing. There's a lot more to it than that, but for the sake of simplifying things, that's the idea behind it.

However, you have to know what potentially "bad" genes are hiding in the pedigree. You might not want to linebreed on a dog that is known for passing on bad hips, for example. And if you linebreed heavily on dogs that are, for example, known to be sharp, you need to balance it out in some way by also bringing in dogs that have very strong nerves and high thresholds for aggressive behavior.

Hope that all makes sense.

Bunny's OFA Prelims did not pass. The other relative I know in this area also did not pass.

To others with True Haus dogs....did they remove your pup's front dew claws? They did on Bunny's litter. Have never had a GSD before where the breeder removed front dew claws.

My TH Pup has her dewclaws..... I prefer they dont have them, but thats not a deal breaker...
Is it common or uncommon to have the dews on the shepherds? In labs- I breed working line labs-and we take the dews off......

Ernst is a dog that many of the working people (for LE, PP, SDA ), really like to see Ernst in a pedigree....I have him in both my young male pups. Having said that, there are some real great dogs that I wouldn't do a close line breeding on....like Grim in the Czech lines and probably Ernst in WG. But that's just an opinion and Truehaus has produced some nice dogs oer the years.

I've had GSDs for almost 30 years, and for a while I worked for a show handler who bred GSDs. All the dogs I handled had their dew claws. All the German Shepherds I've worked with in training have kept their dew claws. I can only think of one dog that had dew claws removed, and it was done as an adult....not due to injury but because he was hurting his owner with his claws.

It just surprised me (and surprised the owner of the stud dog, who sent Bunny to me) that Bunny's dew claws had been removed.

What does Ernst bring to the breeding?

My first purebred GSD was from True Haus, this was near 20 years ago now. She did not have dewclaws removed. She did, however, have severe HD. I have to hand it to True Haus though, they refunded the puppy price in full. And I don't think they have any of those bloodlines anymore--after my pup came up dysplastic, they never repeated the breeding.

The GSD is required to have its front dewclaws. When rear ones show up (which is fairly rare) they are removed.

Ernst brought good nerve and excellent hardness. Very confident dogs that usually can perform in many arenas.
