Showing you what GSD he created was supposed to be.
And it wont make a difference you guys wont care.

So no reason to bother talking any more.
Excerpts from ancestral research
There was a diverse variety of other European breeds, and it is still possible to find descendants of some of these early working dogs. Among them is a type known as the German Collie, or by its colloquial name 'German Coolie' or 'Coulie'. In von Stephanitz's book The German Shepherd in Word and Picture (1925), there is mention that Australian graziers were sufficiently impressed with German sheepdogs to import some.
These dogs would almost certainly have been crossed with local dogs, among which could have been the Border Collie. von Stephanitz's classic work covered all manner of German sheepdogs. Among them were what he called the 'tiger-spotted sheepdog' that could be found in several provinces of Germany.

Take this trouble for me: Make sure my shepherd dog remains a working dog, for I have struggled all my life long for that aim.''
Rittmeister Captain Max von Stephanitz [1864 - 1936]

GSDs still do WORK lol no, they dont work the same way they would in 1864 but they do SO MUCH

GSDs have excelled at basically every dog sport/work. they have done SO MUCH as a breed. police work, search and rescue work, service dog work and so much more

he would probably look at this breed today and be PROUD, because although there is bad, there is SO MUCH GOOD.

Im not saying that all GSDs are perfect, of course they aren't. but they aren't "MESSED UP" as a breed either
