Critique and info on lines

Okay, I realize this isn't exactly how this forum is intended but I'd really like the input of the breed experts on this board - info on conformation would be interesting but I'm especially interested in thoughts on this dog's pedigree. I have a theory and hope to find out whether or not it's supported. The dog is female and two years old.

I apologize for the free stack. Still learning how to do a real one.











Thanks!!!

Re: Critique and info on lines

I would guess W. German workinglines.

Black is not a popular color in the Am or W. German showlines.

She does not have the build of an Am. showline either IMHO.

Re: Critique and info on lines

I am guessing working lines or a mix with working lines.

Flat withers and she is quite roached over the top line. She is a bit stretched and her croup should be longer though the angle of the croup is OK. Good angulation front and rear. Her pasterns are a bit steep and I would like to see better feet. Very dark eyes which are important on a black dog. Feminine head with very nice expression.

I wonder why people keep saying that. The GV this year was a solid black, and I see several every show. Pet quality gsd's don't have the angualation that show pups do, so you can't judge by the body style alone in that case.

Because compared to an American dog, this dog has no rear. And the GVx was a solid black. The GV was a black and tan.

And that's not true about the angulation of pet quality pups. I see a lot that have the angles that would do well in the show ring...standing. They just don't use those angles in motion as the show quality dogs do.

I say East German too

Re: Critique and info on lines

tho no expert,,I'm guessing a mix of lines as well,,german/american possibly.

I really like her head/expression, and personally I like a leggy dog, with that in mind, I agree with xeph, compared to american showlines,,she has no rear (which isn't a negative comment in anyway)

She's very pretty

Because it's true. Black isn't a popular color in American lines, though of course they exist and some can do well in shows, but it is relatively uncommon compared to the other colors. And it's practically non-existant in German show lines.

This dog's structure bears no resemblance to what would typically be seen in American lines, "pet quality" or not.

My guess is primarily working lines, probably a mix of east and west.

This was my impression also but I'm still learning the differences between different working lines.

Temperament wise she is extremely intelligent and has nerves any breeder would be proud of. She's a dominant bitch though which is making for fun times in my pack. Ah well, if fostering were easy, it wouldn't be as interesting.

Thanks everyone for your comments!
