Default Was there a "Greatest of all time"?

Just wondering, if for the sake of argument, in my mind, Superman was the greatest Super hero, Babe Ruth was the greatest Ball player, Ali, King Kong, Einstein, Pele, etc.

Was/is there a "Greatest German Shepherd" of all time? I know most will say their own dog. Good for you. Except for your own dog, is their a greatest of all time?

Haha. That's funny. Did he lead to the American line? Was Rin Tin Tin American line, West German or something else? He was in silent pictures right? That would be pre WWII when the GSD came here and became popular. I am probably wrong. I also wonder which dog was the first American show line dog? I have so many irrelevant questions.

Ha that I'm not sure, he was trained by a soldier who rescued him and became super famous, I think one of the first dog actors! I don't know to much about it though (I'm sure I could google it but I'm being lazy lol)

I think we are talking two different subjects. John Wayne wasn't the greatest American hero in my book. Fury and Silver weren't the greatest horses.

well to one person Faust Busecker Schloss . So many great plans . Apparently the dog was all that and then some. Lost during the war . Tried to find another close to him . The sire of Faust , Onyx is a foundation on West German dogs, DDR dogs, Swedish dogs and probably in the back background of Czech dogs Faust vom Busecker Schloß

Thank you. I will research that. While researching for my puppy, I ran across Zamp Theropos. Was he a great dog or a fan favorite? I would love for my puppy to grow up to look like him. Is that possible? Can I get a dog that will look like Zamp? If possible, please tell me how.
