Angry at people :(

I am sick of being told that Axel isn't a "proper" German Shepherd. His mum and dad are both gsd so what does that make him.

I don't really know anything about the whole hip/back straight/slanted thing but Axel has long straight legs and back. It's not people who ask we what breed is he crossed with that annoys me at all it's people who tell me that he isn't a proper gsd. I had a man tell me recently that he is over-sized and that will go against him in the future. He said that Axel isn't what a proper gsd should look like. He then went on to tell me that Axel probably won't live long. Maybe his size will go against him but he is happy and healthy now and is loved more then words can say. Does it really matter if he isn't a "good representation of the breed" (which he also told me). In my eyes Axel is the most beautiful boy in the world with the best personality and he is so full of character!

He's awesome! And he's happy & you're happy. I love mine too. She's the best in my book and in the end - that's all that counts.

There are people out there that have to share their opinion about everything. These people do not usually have a lot of knowledge on any topic. There is a proverb: even a fool will appear wise if he holds his tongue. Unfortunately, you have run into a fool with a bad case of diarrhea of the mouth. He is trying to impress you with knowledge about your breed. All he can do though, is show his true colors.

Those kind of people should be ignored. They aren't worth getting worked up over. I agree, your dog is beautiful

Wow that is such a weird thing to say about your beautiful dog!!!! Some people just need to hear themselves talk and sound like experts. This man sounds like a poor representation of humanity, IMO.

He's s pretty dog and looks just like a GSD in the pictures. They don't all look the same. I had a rescue that also had a straighter back even when stacked. His shape was that of a working line dog and people had never seen that before. He also had a nonstandard color for a German line, so there was probably a some back yard breeding in his genes, with American lines thrown on. Why is that person criticizing your dog?

Your boy is a very handsome GSD and there is such happiness in his eyes. That guy was a jerk.
