Showline Studs

I am considering using a showline stud, either German or American lines, to improve some conformation flaws, however I seem to be having difficulty finding ones that appeal to me since I tend to prefer working lines. Anybody have any suggestions, nice males that they know of? This won't be happening for a while, so I will be spending a lot of time researching peds, seeing in person, etc. but I need to get started in my research.

Some criteria I'm looking for, strong masculine head, good forehand and reach, correct rear, good health, temperament and drives, hips/elbows. I know you can't have it all, but these are my list toppers that I can think of now.

I have had the pleasure of spending quite a bit of time with both of these boys and I adore them.

I like Geronimo. Hmm, California is far... but I do have an uncle and cousins who live around San Francisco!

Re: Showline Studs

Many breeders will not "cross over" - I know some excellent dogs whose owners will not breed even a well bred OFA cert German showline female if she is not titled under the SV system...

Umzilla on this board has a male who seems very versatile, titled, and has been bred to an untitled working line female, and is in IL - so I would recommend contacting her for assistance and to see her male.

Re: Showline Studs

Take a look at ObiWan From TheisHof. Obi has an OUTSTANDING stable temperament, good working ability, very very nice looking. He has a bit of a short croup, but his other attributes are worth it! I spent some time with Obi in 2007 and was very impressed with him, and I am not easily impressed when it comes to show lines.

I second Geronimo!! He is a good strong dog, who produces the same.

I also like umzilla's boy Fritz, he is on my potential list. Haven't been able to get out to meet him in person yet though.
