|Chip Blasiole||Hip and elbow dysplasia in my dog. He is about eight years old now and will still bolt down the fence line after a bus. His muscle mass and drive helps over ride his athritic problems. He also enjoys swimming. One of the reasons why my next dog won't be a GSD.|

|Chip Blasiole||My dog out of CJ is not that rank with me, and has very good obedience, except I never was able to teach him to out off a suit before I retired him, due to hip issues. I could have used an e-collar, but knew I was not going to compete with him due to his hips. Now he is somewhat rank at the vet, so I have to muzzle him and hold him closely by the collar.|

|Chip Blasiole||The great grandsire on one side is Cejlon z Hundorfu, who was a dual certified police dog and SchHIII. He is the sire of my current dog, who is not social at all and has an extremely hard bite. However, he is a great dog at home, but sees children as prey, has to be muzzled at the vet, etc.|

Thanks for looking into her pedigree for me. And yes, the intention is to work her in some form. I have a call in to a trainer to see about meeting with him. Dani is pretty laid back but too smart for her own good.
I too saw the article about the dogs being removed from the breeder - of course after I got her as she was a gift from my husband. However, if you look further there are also articles where all dogs were returned. I can't say what their intentions are/were but know I'm very happy with the pup I got.
Now we're just waiting for a phone call from the trainer. I know they meet every saturday so we'll see how it goes.
You guys are awesome - your help is really appreciated.

Well, so much for well meaning breeders... I just found out they had 200+ dogs taken from their kennel in 2011:

Sounds like they were running a puppy mill to me.
