Now, if you have a rare or relatively new breed, then I could understand if the vet doesn't recognize it, but I would expect the vet to do a bit of reading and research into a breed he's not familiar with. Certain breeds are prone to certain diseases and maladies, so it's medically relevant.
Yeah.. I knew I used the wrong choice of words.

But I also agree 100%. I don't think she looks any different that any other full pedigree GSD, and honestly was offended, but didn't want to say it.
I admit it, I was taken back by his comment, and his half hearted joke abut her rather small frame for a GSD.

As far as my comment about a different breed...I meant it in a sense that she's a "type" of GSD, not seen too often around here.

Here's some more "fluffiness".. LOL

She is very fluffy! And beautiful.

Is her coat a stock coat, or is there another name for a coat that's fluffy, but not as long as a long coat?

Unofficially, they call that a plush coat.

aaa looks definately like a GSD when she's laying,but legs looks little bit short ... But you know there's a lot GSD mix which looks like huskys,rotts or other breeds,but they still call them a gsd ...Its sad... you fearlessly can call her a GSD

my issue is always when I put exactly what breed i have on the paperwork and i get the paperwork back and the birthday for the dog is wrong AND the breed is something like collie mix when i clearly put specifics on there. I also expect my vet to have a clue about the more common breeds for health reasons.
