Not a clue what a track back is.

And yes, just paste it into the post you want it in. The Pictures category is for show casing and pic heavy posts.

There's a whole lot of close linebreeding on your dogs sire. Pretty much sitting on the border of inbreeding. Not seeing many hip scores in that pedigree either except for one OFA fair. Do you know any of those dogs in that pedigree?

It would probably help if you could get the dam's pedigree.

Yeah, his mother and his grandfather are full siblings.

Ok, I've tried to post a picture again. Let's see what happens. The dams pedigree is on our papers, but I can't seem to find any genetic information about the litter or dam.

Yup... you're right. I guess that breeder likes to keep it in the family.

To be honest with you... I don't even think I need to see that dam's pedigree. Based off the sire, I'm saying don't breed. Just my opinion.

Unless there's a very specific reason and purpose for all that inbreeding/linebreeding that you're looking to pass on, I say just enjoy your pet. Might not be what you want to hear, but based on that pedigree, your answer is pretty clear.

No offense-- and I mean really, no offense-- if I were you and wanted to breed this dog I would NOT breed her to another Artica dog. Looking over dogs with the Artica kennel name, it would appear that this breeder did a lot of breeding close relatives. This practice is not all that uncommon, especially among some show line breeders, but if you're not an extremely experienced breeder who knows exactly what they're doing, it can get very messy.

This is true, breed standards for the clubs are posted on the various sites ... BUT bear in mind that it takes years of experience to be able to take those simple sentences making up a breed standard and to actually be able judge a dog following the standard ... it's not a simple process.

Can you get her to a western UKC show or two then? If so she'll need to be registered with UKC. She can be registered as either a German Shepherd colored white or as a White Shepherd (but not both).

Your girl is pretty ... love that picture!!!

FWIW I saw two kennel names in your sire's pedigree, one (Hoofprint was quite a ways back) I know for sure who it is, the other one (B-K) I "think" I may know who the breeder is if you're interesting in contacting either of them?
