subverted in the fact that an extremely angulated back does not bode well for a functional working dog.

There are two kinds of dogs: Dogs who are German Shepherds, and dogs who WISH they were German Shepherds....

I base it on what dogs are used for actual work and what aren't...you don't see show lines being used for work because severe angulation may look good for trotting but doesnt allow the dog to be as agile or jump as well. It also may cause instability in the hind quarters (keep in mind im not saying HD). Also keep in mind im not arguing against ANY angulation just against what I perceive as a radical departure from what gsd's looked like in the past. It is just so extreme in the showlines.

And what is your definition of "work"? Is it a job such as SAR, LE, service dog, or is it Schutzhund, or does it include other dog sports such as herding and agility?

those would all be considered work. But regardless of my definition of work...breeding the dogs so that their trot in the show ring is "gracefull" is stupid and wrongheaded. Besides, the dogs end up looking like frogs.
