Re: Inside Westminster

Nope, that's a coated GSD, no question about it. Nothing Belgian about that face.

Re: Inside Westminster

Sorry Diana, but no question it's a Belgian Sheepdog (Groenendael).

Re: Inside Westminster

why would they show a belgian as the #3 dog for the akc kennel club for a german shepherd, i still say a LC shepherd I looked up the belgians and they are close but there is no doubt in my mind it is a gsd

Re: Inside Westminster

The one listed in top 10 breeds is clearly a long coat GSD. Groenendaels don't come in GSD black and tan like that dog.

The one on the grooming table in the other slideshow, now that is definitely a Groenendael.

Re: Inside Westminster

I was just looking at the slide show where it the top ten dogs and it even said 'German Shepherd'. To me it looks like a long coat also.

Re: Inside Westminster

Did anyone else twitch a little when they said, "Breeding purebred puppies is one way to make money...?" I know they're referring to the context of conformation showing but I know a lot of John Q's and Jane Q's who will hear that and think, "Cha ching!"
