Playdate pics of my 3 with an English/German lines GSD pup.

Please meet Ozi, a male GSD we are trying to adopt. Enjoy the pics, and if anyone knows anything about English lines, I would love to learn. My Nara is the smaller GSD female in the photos, and she's West German showlines.

Thanks! I love history and culture, and normally choose rare names from eastern cultures. We also have 5 cats: Geisha (Asian), Bhakti (Sanskrit from India), Arctica (made up name for our all-white kitty), Midnight (all black cat) and Simpkin (from Beatrix Potter's "The Tailor of Gloucester").

My children's names are Kaulini Priya (Sanskrit from ancient India), Eirinn Ciara (Irish/Scottish Gaelic), and Lucian (Latin) Donovan (Irish Gaelic).

As for the dogs...

1. Nara Simha Devi is Sanskrit from India. I just altered the name from Deva (male) to Devi (female) since my GSD is a girl.

2. Paw Paw was a name "borrowed" from one of Martha Stewart's chow chows: Kublai Khan Paw Paw Chow Chow Chow. My wife is a big Martha fan, and Paw Paw's name fits his personality perfectly.

3. Beowulf was a name taken from one of my fav childhood poems that I read in school as a kid.

many of the recent "English" lines are basically west German show lines , as this one appears to be.
Long gone the days of the Alsatian which were longer bodied , and all round softer in temperament .
I have all the Malcolm Willis books where he writes at length about them , and was a member of The Alsatian League of Great Britain receiving there annual year books . The name was correctly changed to German Shepherd - 1990?
Easing of the quarantine regulations has opened up access to continental European breeding stock.

you have to evaluate this dog for what he is and whether he suits your needs and abilities.

You have gorgeous dogs. Looks like the beautiful white GSD is dominant, judging from his stance with your present dogs.

Amazing dogs and pictures!

Can't advise on anything; but not sure what makes the difference between straight and sloped backs? Could that be linked? I love straight backs personally. Wish they had never sloped them. Ignore this if it's irrelevant.

I was kind of thinking the dude in the hooded sweatshirt looks to be the dominant one.
