A good dog is a good dog, but when i'm looking for that good dog, I look at working lines. I just like how their built better

Working lines. All are born and bred in the USA. I have actually never owned an imported dog.

My new pup is 3/4 DDR and 1/4 Czech.

My 10yo female is mostly West German working lines with a little american thrown in. (Though not american SHOW lines, she has several police K-9s and herding dogs.)

I own and prefer the West German Showlines.

Mine was born in the U.S.A. 3 out of the 4 grandparents were German imports.

Oh, and my preference is working lines too.

Never even cared for German Shepherds until I discovered working lines. My first reactions was:
Huh? What kind of dogs are those?

Then my next reaction was:
Wow!!!!!

I prefer working but also like some German show lines (I like Kirschental dogs, for example).

My GSD is working line, bred in the USA. I believe the sire was an import. I doubt I'll ever import a dog. That's so expensive and there are decent breeders here that produce what I like.

Yeah... I went straight to the source for my pups.

The question itself left off others. What about Canadians? They have their own lines. And those in England too. We have Phillipines here, Ireland, Australia, Malaysia and The Netherlands. So several people were left out of the question unless the question was just for those living in the US.


but I had to laugh at your response to my answer mjb03.

Working lines. Flash was conceived in Germany to German born sire and dam, whelped in Oklahoma! Cheaper than importing.
