What are you interested in doing with your dog? Showing, obedience, Schutzhund, agility, rally?? Pet/companion?

The kind of dog you want will be dependent on your plans for the dog.

I am not looking to get a dog. I have had dogs from both breeders. I did not purchase these dogs from the breeders, and I was just wondering if all you Shepherd people could give me some insight on my dogs based on where they came from. I have limited knowledge of breeding practices and a good quality GSD (all of mine have been rescues and house pets). Far fetched maybe?
:eek:

Thank you for your input! :)
My male is from kenlyn (Kenlyns el Birbo) not registered w/ AKC but I have the paperwork and that is what his name was supposed to be. From his paperwork it looks like he was purchased from Gretchanya (sp?) kennels in New England. My understanding it that the two kennels/ breeders work together to place their pet quality dogs.
Is there anything I should know about a "show line" dog. He is a pet so I guess I would like to know what kind of traits I should be expecting. Do they have different temperament, activity levels (I would guess lower than that of working dog lines) any info is helpful.

What do you mean by "Ozark"? not sure if it is a typo or it means something (some GSD lingo I'm not familiar with)? :)

Unless you can provide the parentage of each dog, there is no way anyone can make a "guess" as to what you got:)
