on the sire....looked back through to 5th generation pedigree....in 4 there is one female with no background and her parents have typical BY registered names....
on the dam...first off, black and silver is a color used by alot of pet dog breeders...popular color but not ideal to standard of rich pigment....in five generations, I found 2 German bred dogs - Pallas Athene and Fleisherheim/Fiemereck - in the 3rd and 4th generation...the rest of the pedigree is registered names with no recognizable kennel affliations....
Studying pedigrees and attending events and breeding and participating in breed activities just makes people familiar with kennel names and being able to identify them in pedigrees....years of looking at pedigrees and dogs just enables some people to be able to do that...
I am sure you have a nice pup and hope she does well for you! She is over half European showlines. It sounds like you are happy with her and that is what matters!

It takes years and years of experience to be able to analyze a pedigree. Something only a select few on here are able to do and pretty much all of them are breeders. It's not something a novice can just do using Google.

Re: the dogs with hips/elbows/titles -- it is typical, then, for people to always update these this pedigree website? It's not possible that the info was just not put in?
Forgive me; this is my first purebred dog of any kind. I'm starting to feel like an idiot, even though I thought I did due diligence (I was researching breeders for months, checking websites, doing visits, etc). How the heck is someone supposed to figure all of this out? And am I weird for wanting to get a dog "locally"? I use this term loosely because I drove nearly 3 hours one-way to pick her up.
In any event, I love my pup - she is the light of my life. She's loving, smart, and loyal. I dare say she's the smartest dog in her obedience class. Her only "fault" is that she seems kind of shy (but not fearful or aggressive - she's "cautiously curious"). I think she's just a skeptical introvert like me.

Wow... your breeder uses and has a dog named Hitler on their site. That's a first...

I got her from a breeder in Branson, MO. This is the website: My New German Nursery
I chose this breeder because he was one of the only AKC-registered breeders that had puppies available and was close enough to me that I could pick her up in person (rather than having her shipped).
How can you tell that there is "backyard stuff" in the pedigree? I'm so confused by the pedigrees. The most I can decipher is that when the info is in German the dog must have been from Germany!
It sounds like you think the sire's lineage looks okay, though?
