Default Windy Acres Shepherds?

Has anyone heard of this breeder? I was looking for a Shepherd breeder that doesn't breed for the sloping back(without having to import from Germany or elsewhere in the UK) and so far this is the only one I found who's dogs actually do not appear to have a sloping back. All the other ones who "claimed" their dogs were imported or that they bred "East German line" German Shepherds had dogs with sloping backs pictured. No offense meant to those who like the American bred Shepherd, I prefer the German German Shepherd type dog.

I just started looking so there may be more than this breeder, but as I said, so far this is the only one I found who has what I'm looking for, and isn't all that far away from me.

Any input would be appreciated, especially if you know of a breeder who breeds this kind of Shepherd.

Keep in mind when dogs are pictured in a stack, it makes them appear much more sloped that they actually are.

As far as the breeder you are referring to, they purposefully breed well outside of the standard for German Shepherds. GSD's are not meant to be 100+ pounds and that extra weight can cause health issues down the road. Looking at OFA, they appear to health test but with just call names on their site you cannot really verify which ones have actual OFA certification.

As far as breeding "old style" GSD's, that to me is completely made up by people trying to make money. Old style GSD's follow the breed founder's requirements which is a medium sized working dog.

BTW, what exactly are you looking for in a GSD? This way, the experts on the board can help point you in the right direction.

Those dogs don't even look like real German Shepherds... how strange.

They don't have sloping backs (???) but a lot of them have sagging backs.

Yes, but what I am noticing right off the bat is the very strange conformation and head structure... strange diluted colours, etc.

I think the OP is referring to seeing pics of dogs stacked, which can make them look like their backs slope towards the ground. That is my guess though. However, most when they are not stacked do not appear anything like that.
