JakodaCD OA I have always had purebred dogs, the couple of what I would consider rescues (aussie and a gsd), were not registered, all others akc/stockdog/registered from breeders.

I don't think anyone should feel offended/slighted/inferior because your dog came from xxxx and not yyyy, because your dog has 'papers' or doesn't. We all love our dogs, and they could care less where they came from it's where they are 'now'..

Sabis mom Alright I'll play.

I have one registered, one not.

Since I live in Canada, where you cannot represent a dog as purebred without registration, I guess Shadow is just a dog, although I see nothing but GSD there.

Bud is registered, but I am not sure what that proves since mostly he just hangs around being good looking.

The dog I recently lost looked like a GSD, acted like a GSD, genetics said she was a GSD, but I don't know for sure. Since she saved my life and watched my back for 8 years I don't guess it matters.

Juliem24 I'm on this forum, and my dog is a rescue. He looks and acts like a GSD, but I can't prove it ( except with my eyes and brain...) I kinda would've liked to buy from a breeder but couldn't afford it, had to shoot craps with the gene pool.
On the lighter side, I married a guy is purebred Polish, and I'm a mutt. My mother in law never spoke to me in 39 years because I am not purebred.

canyadoit Heck I get them for free when they are two to three years of age Lots of folk spend a lot of money for good pups Then they find the dog way to hot to intense to smart and maybe borderline dangerous These folk got the wrong breed
I put up with what I have to work with take my chances get bit from time to time Learning how to communicate with each other After a year I have a good dog to start with Most times I pass them along after a few years when I have confidence in the dog
When I get one that I really like I keep that one Old or young , show or high performance
Like the one I have now 2 1/2 year old high performance stock I am the fifth owner He had issues almost dangerous He has a hard bite :-) Had him now eight months He is a firecracker big powerful tons of drive intelligent protective social and good looking His issues now dog aggression and swiming Classes for the aggression The swimming he has passed 50 mins straight swimming He chases rocks and fish I got lucky after fifteen years I got the one in a thousand imo :-)
The down side is the female has to go

I know a good dog is were you find it Paperwork is nice but it is paper The dog is real If it is the best dog for you that's the real deal

gsdsar MODERATOR HAT ON:!:!:!:

Knock it off. Personal attacks on other members are not allowed on this board. If you have an issue with another member, take it private.

Everyone is allowed to express opinions, as long as they do not insult or demean another member.

If it continues, parties will receive an official warning.


OP, I have rescued and bought. Some with pedigrees, some without. Makes no difference to me. A good dog is a good dog. I don't need papers to prove it.
