Historic DDR Video

Interesting, I just wish I could understand what they are saying.

Re: Historic DDR Video

That is a great video! Thank you so much for posting that! Does anyone else think that the closing shot of the man standing with two black dogs on leashes, shows a different breed other than GSD's? They seem to have more fur on their faces than a GSD would have? I looked at it a few times and still am wondering?

Yepp, maybe because they are Giant Schnauzers?

They didn't say anything of real interest. In a nutshell they mainly mentioned, that the DDR GSD was the main breed sought by police, border patrol and shepherds for their courage, stamina and hardship. In 1989 (when the wall went down) the DDR GSD took in whole world and the pure DDR GSD is nowadays steadily decreasing.

I looked again and again at the video and I really DO think those two black dogs at the end might very well be Schnauzers! Neat! I can't tell if they are Giants or Standards, but they sure have beards and eyebrows like my dog~ I have heard of Giant Schnauzers being used by the German Police along side the German Shepherd. The standard was used primarily as a search and rescue, messenger and bomb detection dog due to it's smaller size. Mine does a really great job of detection, toys and food mostly, but a great job, none-the-less!

Re: Historic DDR Video

I would have to say they are giant schnauzers at the end.
