Getting scared by two dogs doesn't mean you get to sue someone and take their money. Not defending the OP here, but good grief isn't our society litigious enough? If I were the OP I'd go to court and...

SuperG is right about the speed. I used to pay someone to jog one of my young dogs and condition him but she "quit" because she could not keep up. My dog with the bigger gait gets roadworked with me...

Many of the original GSDs had sway backs, not straight backs.

Anecdotally, my show line and my WGSL/WL cross both have better hips (on x-ray) than my WL did (but his were not bad either).

Black spots are common on GSD tongues. I think Chows actually have more of a blue/purple tongue. I have a mixed breed dog and his tongue is solid blue/purple, not spotted.

PS. When I have a baby pup outside, I don't even use their name for the first week or two. I usually just call "puppy puppy puppy!" in a squeaky voice and jog backwards, they run to me.
