|volcano||I have a girl, and she may be bred in the future. How would I learn about lines and what dogs put out genetically without asking questions???|

You all make good points. Thank you for the education, I never looked at it that way.

I'd be looking for traits I like and also traits I want to stay away from.
I'm always interested in who's breeding to what, just a wee bit of a fashion show.

There are some dogs that are "famous", or widely used for breeding, so that they are common to many pedigrees. Knowing what a particular dog is like, you can make inferences about how he will affect a pedigree, and that helps inform you about the breed.
Knowledge is power!

To learn about a specific behavior and get input from others?
I have had friends that have dogs with issues and they have asked me to ask the people from the "dog forums" I belong to for advice.

|huntergreen||maybe they admired the dog they are inquiring about.|

I don't know. Nevermind.

|Bob_McBob||Personally I would feel positive if my dog had a good enough pedigree to be discussed by strangers. What's the big deal? It's an important aspect of breeding.|

I always ask for a pedigree .
Here is the link to the pedigree data base German Shepherd Dog
where you can enter a dog's name and you can research a pedigree 5 , 7 generations back.
Public information .
Pedigree is similar to ingredients in a recipe .
