Thank you soooo much for the info!Your dog's sire's side has some fairly decent working line dogs in the pedigree. However, a fairly large number of the dogs have no titles, even though they come from well-known kennels.
The dam's side, not so much. They are AKC registered dogs with no titles, with cutesy names like Boo Boo Bear vom Toomey. We call this 'pet breeding', as it was done with no purpose other than to produce dogs for the pet market, with no health or temperament testing. Some of the dogs on the dam's side are white GSDs: Daybreaks Otto Moonshine
A number of the white dogs do have titles in either conformation or performance, but they are REALLY far back in the pedigree.
So, not the greatest pedigree in the world.
Love your dog anyway, and don't put limits on him or yourself just because of a pedigree! You never know what he's capable of until you try!
He's a handsome boy, and I love his colouring.
It works for me when I click on the image (displays upright)Let's see if this works! Getting pictures the right way up on this site is sometimes difficult.
Edit: nope...like I was saying!! I turned it the right way up so I could research it, but it still won't post that way.
Just had a bright idea: post it to a phone or tablet, then disable the screen rotation function, and turn the screen so the pedigree is the right way up!
Or...you could stand on your head! /forum/images/Germanshepherds_2016/smilies/tango_face_wink.png
I am curious how a sire that is black (a/a) and a dam that is black and tan for generations could produce a bi-color. The genetics are just not there to support that.
Here he is as a puppy
