|Liesje||I think that the major splits with the WGSL and ASL have happened due to backmassing on dogs a lot more recent, but of course those dogs would have more or less of the three main types in their blood, so indirectly I think the answer is yes.|

do some lines express more of one of the three landraces that were used to create bre
From my limited research and correct me when when wrong but von stephanitz purchased Horand; a type of dog called a thuringian shepherd that are smallish, gray sable, wolflike in penotype and on the sharp high strung side. He added bigger and mellower sheep dogs from wurrtenburg to add bone size and balance the temperment. Are these the dogs responsible for the classic red with black saddle
and muzzle? A third landrace from Swambia was added which were used mostly as service dogs, right? Any one familiar withtheir look and temperment?
I have heard working lines have a greater percentage of thuringian blood hence the less exagerated phenotype and sable colors common in these dogs, along with more drive and sharpness.
Do highlines contain a stronger percntage of one of these founding types? How about ASLs? Also are there lines that are nicely balanced among the three?
