dogsnkiddos I have had good pm suggestions from several people- and back when I wanted a match for Beast just before he fell ill and died I had some strong suggestions as well. Maybe the kids and i need to take some road trips

Jax08 Now where are you going to find it?

dogsnkiddos So I joined a FB group you linked me to Michelle. I saw a video with snippets from the wusv in Philly in October. I did not get to go as I had to take 130 girls camping that weekend (did I ever mention I HATE camping?!) I looked at some video I made at an even Boy and I attended a few years back. I think I know what I want.....seeing that intensity and drive and remembering how hard it is to live with.... I know

You'll figure out what you are looking for by meeting and watching the dogs!

Jax08 I would just describe exactly what Beast was like. Why don't you spend the summer visiting Schutzhund clubs to watch the dogs. You might find exactly what you want at one and then you can follow up with the breeders.

dogsnkiddos BTW I think all GSDs are cadillacs That's the standard issue model for such an awesome dog!

dogsnkiddos This will be number 7 for me- my lucky number. This is the first time cats have out numbered dogs or that we have had just ONE dog in my adult life. I am pretty sure I cannot learn new tricks- but lucky for me Boy and Girl have a lot of energy and can help out

So...if I am looking for Beast like model, any suggestions (dog world wording please so I become educated) on the traits I want to be looking for? I.e. when I ask questions of breeders what sorts of terms should I use so I am effectively communicating what I am actually looking for?

Daisy&Lucky's Mom I dont know that any of mine were Cadillac or Ferrari's however Daisy's need to run the show was a battle we fought until she was five and periodically up until she nine or ten . That aside Im trying to figure out the same thing do I want smart and drivery w/ an off switch or do I want more of a lower energy and maybe more Gump like w/ better nerves? If Im picking a car to represent Daisy was Chevy Supersport,lots of noise and muscle but lousy gas milage. Chevy and Thunder are chevy cavaliers(very dependable) and Lucky is probably a SUV. I think if I had been on the Forum when Daisy was a young dog and I read my posts I'd probably be thinking cats!
