So im almost 10 months into having my gsd puppy. Not my first gsd but my first lc or plush. Ive been doing alot of roaming and reading on them. Seems like in certain spots there is a serious dislike or almost hate for them among the purist ( not meant to be a put down in any way, just for lack of a better word i guess) Ive read comments about how they are not really gsd and those who buy them are duped by the breeders etc. I realize they are not the standard and so forth. thats not what i got a gsd for. I know some of the comments are absurd. I guess I just dont understand and would really like to hear from people on both sides of it. It has no bearing on how I love my dog. Hes a great dog and we are doing great in obedience, and I think he is beautiful and have never had a dog get so much positive attention.
