Hello All! I am new to this forum, but not new to dogs or GSD! I presently have 10 dogs (yes, 10!), but do not now have a GSD. I will be assisting my son to find a good GSD soon, when he is discharged from the military. Several years ago, we had a wonderful GSD that I used in a Search & Rescue group. It was fun, although we did not get far into the process, because we moved out of state. The GSD we had was a fantastic dog that was very plush, had nice hindquarters that were strong & not horribly angulated , he had the sweetest disposition, & he was 110 pounds (not overweight). His breeder was in Hershey PA & I cannot find her anymore - she stoppedbreeding shortly after we got our dog & I believe she married & moved. Her goal was to produce healthy sweet GSD. She knew that these beautiful happy dogs would not win in a typical AKC showring, but her dogs were the BEST! The terribly angulated dogs you see slouching around the ring are grotesque in her opinion, & I agree. Now more recently, I have come to rea;lize that my AKC GSD is the epitome of the Shiloh Shepherd I have been reading about. Is this blasphemy in the GSD forum world? haha I am very interested in learning more about nicely bred GSD, as well as a discussion of the Shiloh nShepherd if possible. Truthfully, my vet loved my GSD, & said that he was one of only a couple of GSD that did not have to be muzzled when being examined! I am glad to be here, & am anxious to learn! Thanks!
