|David Taggart||Please, feel very lucky to have her, her looks and her prey drive say she is of a working line. It is typical of these dogs to be agile and very clever. Originally GSDs are the shepherds, they were bred as police dogs after, but GSD breeding was at its zenith in Hitler's army - exactly during the war the breeding of a dog with a superintellect became a national task in Germany. The bloodline in the descendants of those dogs are preserved through the established Schutzhund competition ( a check of the dog's intellect and physical abilities). I would suggest you and your child to visit your local Schutzhund club and to see weather or not you would like to be a member. The brain of a working line dog should be involved all the time, they easily fall into depression, may turn agressive or nervous without daily intellectial load. In return - they are very easy to train. There is vertually nothing in the world exists what you cannot train them. For a working line dog is normal to pass general obedience at 6 months, and to pass all three stages of Schutzhund before 2 years and half. It is important to know her age ( your vet can tell that), because the dog exhibits different behaviour at different age periods.|

|janr||Thank you, I was surprised by how short her coat is. Is it normal to have a coat like this or is it poor breeding?|

|KZoppa||She's certainly pretty!|

|janr||She is approx. 3 years old. She came out of central California but no other info than that.|

|KZoppa||I would feel pretty comfortable saying she's working lines judging by your description combined with the picture. How old is she?|
