They are essentially 3 very distinct subsets of German shepherds: Euro show lines, Euro working lines, and American show lines. All 3 are very different in looks (mainly structure, but often color) and temperament. These differences have come about due to generation upon generation of breeding in different directions and for different purposes.

Excellent way to sum it up.


If you are looking to buy, determine what you'd like to do with the dog (ie. a certain activity or sport)- that will help you narrow your search.

If you would like a well bred family dog, a discriminating, educated buyer can find one in any of the lines.
