Look into Appleridge German Shepherds kennels in Cleveland TN. They have a beautiful WGSD stud with a-1 hips. Their dogs are bred for temperament and health plus they are great looking dogs. These are working lines. Worth the drive.

I´ve got a dog from Charlie Starr. I got her almost a year ago.
Real nice dog, I definitely recommend it to you.

Yup. You would be thinking wrong.
Just do a search on HD or Hip Dysplasia and check out the forum for hips in the health section. Plenty of HD positive working lines.
They also get the elbow dysplasia, degenerative myolepathy, anal fistulas, cancer, bloat and all the other host of problems of our beloved GSDs.
Also, within the working lines beware the myth the DDR working lines are 'immune' to HD.

|cards*fan||Does anyone have any thoughts as to whether showlines or working dogs have better health and fewer genetic issues? Am I wrong in thinking that overall working lines will have fewer genetic issues because there is less linebreeding in working lines than showlines?|

If you want West German Show lines - you don't need to travel 5 or 6 hours...
Charlie Starr (Drache Feld) and Jeff Lund (Schneiden Fels) are both very established, very reputable people. Both are in Kentucky (at least I think Jeff is...I know Charlie is)
If there is a show in the next few weeks - you should attend...there may be other breeders there who have litters or pups available as well.
Meeting the dogs in the working male class, who may be sires of some of the litters available or due, at a show is a very good idea!!!
