He never said rescue dogs weren't good enough. He said he didn't want them.

BIG difference.

He has a certain look that he wants. There is nothing wrong with that.

Sometimes rescues DO get dogs that look like what the OP is looking for, but it's rare.

How you can go from this:

I'm looking for a dog that will announce with strong barking that strangers are present.

I just don't get it???

As for the OP being rude? Hardly. He simply stated what he was looking for and what HE didn't like.

I think it was simply the "shabby" and "don't even look like shepherds" comments that got everyone's hackles raised. I know they didn't hit me right at all, I had to walk away from the computer for a moment. Of course, I am a hormonal 18 yr old.

OP- Have you looked at the Eurosport link or the links I posted for PDB ads yet?

Just remember this. No matter how great your "dream" dog looks when you get him, it is your job to keep him looking like that. Exercise, a high quality food, LOTS of coat maintenance or your dog will end up looking just as "shabby" as these other dogs you are turning your nose up at.

My long coat girl is stunning when she is clean, and brushed to a shine. After a few trips to the beach and rolling in the sand with her sister, her hair gets wild and small mats form. She will start to look a bit "shabby". It doesn't change the fact that she is incredibly smart, will alert me immediately if someone is even near my house and just about bark her head off if someone comes near the car while I am in it. She also loves me more than anything in the world.

So get your fabulous looking dog but be sure you keep him that way. Good luck with all that work.

Well actually he did say he's looked into rescues, but they have all been shabby or mixed and then said " I WOULD TAKE A RESCUE DOG IF ONE PERSON COULD SHOW ME A GREAT LOOKING DOG. SOME OF THESE RESCUE DOGS LOOK SO POOR THEY DON'T EVEN LOOK LIKE SHEPHERDS"

Definitely seems like he should go to a breeder for what he is looking for.

Holland, I honestly don't like any of the dogs in the top display. We see a lack of pigment and pattern. Short noses and poor ears, etc. I guess I'm looking for a dog that is show quality. I like the big male on the second page of photos you sent me though. he's great.

I love my boy rocky but he is honestly not the best looking dog around. Dogs don't care how they look, no insult made.

What the heck is wrong with wanting a normal German shepherd and not the mix looking ones posted?
There is nothing wrong about wanting a "normal" german shepherd. What was wrong with his post was his dismissive, insulting language. A normal person would have just politely declined or ignored the rescue route.
