abmc Yes, she is member I think. Her dogs are not from Rin Tin Tin Line the way it is now......the relation is like 12+ generations back. She told us when we bought our puppy from her that it was so too far back to be of any consequence to the bloodline, but just kind of fun knowing it was there in the lineage. We love our puppy we got from her last year.

Kayos and Havoc I had never heard of Cunningham Shepherds. I like that they are doing health checks. But I do not like the Rin Tin Tin lines at all. Not looking to insult anyone but I do not like the lines.

John C. Hi Georgina, welcome to the forum. I'm fairly new here myself and there are others who have a lot more knowledge than me - so I'm not really qualified to answer your question.

However, what constitutes a "family dog" or a "great dog" can vary a lot depending on who you are asking.

The more information you can provide about yourself and your family, the easier it will be for someone to recommend a good match. It sounds like you have some experience with GSD's since you grew up with them as a child. But do you have any experience with GSD's (or other dogs) as an adult?

Are you interested in competing in any obedience trials? Would you be willing to take a basic obedience course with your dog? How much exercise can you or your spouse give the dog each day? Do you live in the city or the country? Have a fenced in yard? Do both you and your spouse work outside the home, or is someone able to be with the dog most of the day? Do you want a dog with a fairly high level of energy, or one that has a calmer temperment?

Also, is appearance important to you? If so, do you want a black and tan dog, a sable, a black and red, or an all black dog?

It might be helpful if you did a little research and, as a starting point decided if you think you would prefer an American GS, a West German Show Line or a Working Line.
