If you are interested in West German Showlines, I would recommend Andrew at von Jagenstadt German Shepherd Dogs .

I have no personal experience with him other than on this and another board, but I think his dogs speak for themselves.

I think OP already has a dog from this kennel and is trying to find out more about them. Not trying to find a breeder to buy from.

Yes, I misread the OP's post.

Sorry..

Do you have a pedigree for your dog?

I have been studying Czech bloodlines for a little bit and can offer some very limited information.. lol.

Chuck, Cliff and Christine (Czech) and Chris (WG) would be the ones I would ask.


**I would also ask for this thread to be moved to the bloodlines section since you aren't activitely looking for a breeder just wanting information on lines.**

no she has more than one litter. she just had another litter 10 weeks ago. i googled her phone number and she has had numerous ads online for czech lines family raised. $600. she possibly could have had a litter when we went to see her. i wouldn't know we weren't allowed in the house. she has the stud in the dna stud book of akc further generations were titled ofa tested and such. but she was a byb. or a "hobby breeder" as she called herself

So does she have more than one female that she breeds? Or just the sire/dam that she continues to breed?
Blending showlines and the Czech are puzzling, and the FB page makes is sound like the female is from working lines, but they are show:.
We also use European imported champion working lines to create the perfect balance.

Maybe she has found the "perfect balance!"

Okay, I see she is mixed with West German Showlines on the dam's side - can't comment on that since I have no knowledge but others will hopefully chime in.

The sire's side has a few Pohranicni Straze dogs, these dogs were bred for the main purpose of being the Czech border patrol dogs. They are known for being 'sharp' which means they usually have stronger active aggression than other lines, they also tend to take longer to mature much like the DDR lines.They tend to have (if bred right) balanced drives, and excellent nerves although they to tend to to be handler sensitive.

If I remember correctly, Karen (Heidi and Lucas's mom) has a Showline/Czech mix... named Lucas.. I would contact her. I am not sure if she posts on here often anymore but you can look her up. I am sure she can help you too. :)

yeah i am a fan of her FB page. her father (Grief) is czech. her mom is an import and is showline IMO from her coloring. she has 2 other dogs as well that are not pictured on the sight. at her home, she has 2 females and 2 males.
in gernal, i know all temperments can be different depending on the dog, but in gerneral what would a dog that is a cross like that be like tempermate wise? she states on her FB page that she crosses them to get the "perfect balance" vut um i wouldn't exactly listen to her FB page. she states all her puppies are housebroken or atleast started, socialized, etc. we got our pup from her at 16 weeks and she didn't have a clue about being house broken or socalized. that has been a struggle for us since the day we got her to accept people.

to be honest, i dont think she has found the "perfect balance" even though she swears non of dogs are agressive ( she let us meet the mom and she was great but she was also the european lines) i don't think the sire has ever been out of the backyard... or the house. im sure they are great with her children and her family.. just as my dog is... but if your a stranger look out. socializing has definately been a struggle. she is a fear barker. but im hoping its just taking her longer to develope mentally and physically.

The DDR in her will take longer to mature and they tend to be naturally suspicious, just keep up with the socializing and classes work on her confidence.
I wouldn't blame her temperament on either side, but the showline could carry the unstable nerve very easily!

yes, i definately belive it will take her a while to mature. i hope with all of the socialization we are doing she will grow out of it. i hope she takes after her mom, she was a sweetheart. her dad just wanted to eat us. i have been doing tons of research on her dads lines. couldn't find a whole lot on her mom. he has 4 or 5 PS in him. his father was a z PS also. thank you everyone for the information

holland my comment about the unstable nerve was from DTS thought here:
( she let us meet the mom and she was great but she was also the european lines)

Hmm. I lived in Plant City in 2008. When I lived there I searched all over for a GSD breeder. Never heard of them.

I think you'll have a hard time getting a lot of concrete info about the bloodlines in general since there are quite a few untitled dogs in the pedigree. Obviously will be easier to get info on the temperaments of the dogs and what they produced farther back in the pedigree.

In general, I think that breedings should be carefully thought out as to why 2 dogs are being bred. I think it's even more important when you are breeding 2 lines with very different characteristics like Czech and WGSL dogs.
