DDR? West german? Both?

Hi everyone! In a few weeks I'll be getting my first GSD puppy! Exciting! I know the dam has Czech/German bloodlines and that the sire was imported from Germany. These past few weeks I've been looking at the pedigree trying to see if I could find out if the german lines are specifically DDR or West German, or both! However I'm a total newb and after much name googling I still can't figure it out. Wondering if anyone knowledgable in bloodlines could take a look at my puppies pedigree and give me their insight?
Thanks in advance!

There's definitely some ddr in there. If you look further back on some of the pedigrees you'll see ddr with some numbers behind it. I'm sure someone that knows pedigrees better will chime in and tell you more.

do not worry whether the dogs are DDR WWLines or Czech.
Does not matter . Does not matter as much as WHO they are .

Do go back and have a very close look at how these lines are represented . Who the sires and dams are - the genetic information that they hold.

Question . Is this litter balanced . ??? that is what you need to look at.

Sure no problem! I'm a pedigree newb myself so I can't tell you much. I'm actually interested to see if some of the pros chime in about that line breeding on asko von der lutter. I've read before that he produces dogs that can be tough as pups but get better with age.

Out of curiousity, what are your plans with your future pup?

One of the reasons I chose this breeder is because I know a few people who have dogs from them (same parents, too!) and they are amazing medium/high drive and strong nerves!

tracking, obedience/rally-o, and canicross! I'm also visiting a schutzhund club next month to see if that's something I'd be interested in

If you know the dogs and know what they're producing, and they fit what you're looking for then you're off to a good start. But if not, or you're on the fence, I'd take a second look at this advice from Carm.
