I'm sorry, but I always cringe with "Continental"... they're known for being the back yard breeders and puppy mills registry of choice. I was really hoping you would say Canadian.
Since the breed originated in Germany, all bloodlines trace back to Germany. Wouldn't be called a "German" shepherd with out it silly!
They are a highly vocal breed. They will talk up a storm! Be prepared for him to make it very known what he wants.
He's a cutie, just not a registry I would support. I hope you enjoy him!
