Default Breeder "Catch" Phrases

I see certain things on breeder sites and have to wonder how many people are impressed by certain phrases...

Quote:
You can trace his family tree all the way to back to the very first German Shepherd , Horand Von Grafrath.



Ummmmm....can't all German Shepherds be traced back to the very first?

If they don't have the very first GSD in their family tree...wouldn't that make them an entirely different breed?

How do you evaluate for loyalty? Has a dog ever been excluded from the breeding program for disloyalty?

I'm very impressed they are related to Horand...can you PM me that site so I can get a "real" GSD?

ROFL. Like.

"The WGSD (White German Shepherd Dog) is a rare breed by AKC standards."
W-what?

I've seen the phrase 'Years of careful breeding', yet they have nothing to show for any of their dogs. No titles, nothing. I can't help to think, careful of what?

The imported whines are just as bad, if not worse than the domestic ones, LOL!

Ohh, I love this thread.

Quote:
we Breed for “Physical and Mental Perfection” as well maintaining the sheer Beauty and Nobility of the German Shepherd Dog. “One Must be able to afford to pay for that Perfection” We are the BMW in German Shepherds. Our Client List Includes Judges, Lawyers, Vets, Vet Techs, University Professors, Doctors, Dentists, High End Self Employed Business Owners.. If you Need that Perfection in your Life, and can afford to pay for it, “ you need a ****** Dog”.
One of the most ridiculous things I have ever read on a breeder's page. Disgusting and arrogant, actually. Also... vet techs makes barely above minimum wage... they shouldn't be grouped with vets and lawyers if you're trying to sell to people who will pay 4000 for puppies from untitled and un-health-certified parents.
