I too cannot find anything bad to say about him!

Hes got nice rich pigment, dark eyes (from what I can tell) and a masculine head. Nice athletic figure. Pasterns look fairly strong and croup is okay. Topline looks pretty good, though his withers look a bit flat but that could just be the angle of the picture/stance of the dog. Looks like he has nice tight feet. Its hard to tell if he is in fact over sized, but he looks proportionally correct. Very handsome boy you've got!

OK have to show both sides, this vid is from months ago when i first tested his protective instincts - where the ugly tag came from as a breed registry person was present to view the test. they shat there pants, no feeling my dogs nuts i guess.

gets uglier as the vid progresses. don't blame me for the music.

I'm confused. Who is telling you your dog is ugly and what sort of breed registry person was there? Your dog would fail in the AKC show ring because he's not an american showline dog. Your dog is a workingline dog and they can be shown in the SV ring.

blame my little bro, i can type on a computer but the rest i am at his mercy for, he does stuff like that. we don't have a lot of common ground, i grew up in the country he grew up in the city and we have a big age gap so any way we can relate is fine by me and its the only way i can bridge sometimes when i self absorb over dogs and he is locked in his room with a computer and a bass guitar.

GSD/AKC breed registry peeps at the show/obed club. i have to train in a corner of the field away from the other members. i walk in the gate and there dogs all react to him and they start jerking their dogs necks around. my dog has no dog aggression at all but he struts around and drags me onto the field. their dogs have to be submissive and out of drive 100% of their existence - it is sad to see.

Find another club to train with...no reason to be with people you dislike.

easy in theory, long way between clubs here - i don't train with them i train at the other end of the field. i go mainly for socialising my dog but that phase is complete so i haven't been back and have no need to.

Maybe you could turn the tables on them then, show them what dogs like to do and that their ways are sad and boring!!
So you don't compete in anything? What part of the world are you in? US, Canada?
