Can you tell me anything?

Hello all- I really appreciate you taking the time to look at this. I got Kane a year ago from the Mid-Atlantic German Shepherd Rescue- I think he's about two years old, he's about 26 inches at the shoulder, and 77 lbs. He was blinded in one eye, hence the blueness.

He was adamant about not stacking, so I just wanted to give you guys as many useful pictures as possible.

What I would like to know is anything you can tell about him by looking- do you even think he's a high-percentage shepherd? If so, German or American lines?

I'm curious to learn anything that the discerning eye can tell me, and in the meantime will just provide a few cute pictures of my handsome fella. Thanks again!

I'm not an expert, but I think he's gorgeous and 100% GSD. I'm also partial to black dogs.


BTW, I had no problem getting my Doerak ILP'd as a GSD for AKC events. And calling him a GSD is a stretch. LOL!

Re: Can you tell me anything?

That's another question I have- I doubt I'll be showing him, but do injuries (his blindness, and one back toe does'n't sit right because someone let him grow a raptor claw) matter when it comes to those kinds of things?

Re: Can you tell me anything?

is that you in the last picture...if so, you guys are a matched pair! and both beautiful! if he's a mix he's a very high one, but don't think he's angulated enough to be american lines. thank you for adopting him and welcome to the board!

ps...i think injuries would matter for showing him.

Re: Can you tell me anything?

wow hes very gorgeous! Sad to hear about his eye being blind but boy does it give him some extra charactor! I agree with some others, he looks purebred shepherd to me! Probably from working lines, what is his personality and temperment like?

Re: Can you tell me anything?

Haha, thanks guys, yeah- everyone always jokes about how much we look alike.

Personality-wise, he's a nice medium-drive guy, wth a bit of aprey drive. He's a couch potato most of the day, but loves going for long, long walks. He is a quick learner to a degree, once it comes to the refinement stage he tends to get bored quickly or just takes a while to figure things out, athough he can learn a "stupid pet trick" within a few short sessions.

Very sweet, very friendly although a little skittish (rather than aggressive) around quick-moving strangers. Your usual friendly, slightly protective goofy young male shepherd.

If I got him into anything it would be agility- he's like a big lack cat a lot of the time, and no one wanted to adopt him until me because they were intimidated by the fact that he easily jumps seven feet in the air from a sit!

Then she would come around to the gate to be let in.. Haha..

Re: Can you tell me anything?

AKC will not let you show a blind or deaf dog, or a dog with a limp. Here's what their obedience regs. say about blindness. I think you're okay on that one.

"A dog that is blind, deaf or has been changed in appearance for cosmetic
reasons (other than changes customarily approved for its breed)
may not compete in any obedience trial or tracking test and will be disqualified.
Blind means without useful vision. Deaf means without useful
hearing. The judge will not obtain the opinion of a veterinarian."
