This may be an obvious question but is it possible to have a PB GSD whose lines don't trace back to this dog?
I traced Jax's relatives back to this dog and thought "ooh, how special." but is it really? Shouldn't all GSDs trace back to this dog?

Another question, sorry if I'm hijacking this. Is that the first GSD that was bred with wolf? I thought I read something about Max von Stephanitz bred his first GSD with wolf and some other dog. Is this the dog? I'm probably really wrong.

These dogs were NOT bred with wolves.

Apparently some people still think Hector von Schwaben had wolf in him from Mores Plieningen, but as is stated in Max's own book, this was not the case.

There is no known or significant portion of wolf blood in this breed.

I agree with Lex on the wolf.

I know Stark's lines (sire at least) go back to Horand as well.

I was able to trace Odin's lines back on his dam's side to Horand, I thought it was kinda neat.
