I love the German Shepherd dog breed and intend to get a working line soon for Schutzhund. I had a male German Showline before that had issues: digestive, spine, knee, allergies. The poor boy. I love the breed and want to welcome not only a working line but a show line into my home. If not, I will get another breed to accompany my working line as “friends”. It seems like an impossible task to find a solid lineage in the showlines. Should I avoid it altogether or try again? Thanks so much. This forum is full of amazing people.
