Congratulations. Mine come from ancestry with multiple titles too, and they're easy to find in the dark. I win.

I strung some of these newfangled LED lights on my shepherd with a small solar panel...and I'm telling ya...I can spot her at night as easily as sliding off a greasy log backwards

This word "VERSATILE" is often used as an excuse for a dog that is lacking or weak.
I believe you said a guide dog doesn't have the proper drive or temperament for a GSD...and I still disagree. I know what versatile means, thanks.

I think deciding what makes a dog a good breeding prospect is something that takes a very long time to understand and I don't have a problem admitting I don't have that kind of knowledge yet, but I do know that breeding for any one trait isn't right. That's why I have the dogs I have, they're a whole lot more than "just" white. They ARE pretty though.

Imagine a GSD which never landsharked, no reactivity or fear/aggression/dominance problems etc....a plug and play dog....soft-mouthed out of the chute...never forged on it's first walk...and as a bonus ...didn't shed. The breeder would sell a bazillion of those dogs....but then again...I suppose they would call it something other than a German Shepherd.


SuperG

I know this isn't for this thread but this thread is dying lol.
maybe you can quickly say what you look for? if not then I can start a thread. I really want to know
So far, no.

Start a new thread down in the breeding area so I am not the only one answering.

ETA lol since things get twisted here sometimes. this isn't about my dog. he isn't breed worthy and doesn't have papers. I'm just curious.

At 1 year old, the pup can be a superstar, and at two she can start having seizures. You can definitely say a dog is not breedworthy at 1 year, but determining if a dog is, is a little different. At one, you can certainly say, this dog can go all the way through training and get its titles, if you have the experience. But the experience with the dog, is most likely fun, and good for the dog. It should help to develop the dog, and help to make living with the dog an even more pleasurable experience. That's why I train mine. GSDs ought to be trained, they need to get out there, they need to have some experiences and learn new things, why not go for something in that process.
