Default Shiloh Shepherds???

Are they actually a breed? They are only recognized by the NKC (National Kennel Club) and as I am pretty "breed club" ignorant, just from glancing at their website they don't look too official. They are also "under construction", according to the breed club website, .. and they are quite a young breed.

i dont knwo much about them but what i do know is

shilos are one of those many that got attacked by the bigger is better fad.

essentially they bred shepards (and whatever into them) to gain an ungodly and unstandard size for their shepards. along with this comes a larger potential for health problems, hip, knee and elbows would be my biggest concern.

there along the same lines as the "warlock dobes"

personally as pretty as they are, id steer clear.

as for the dog in the picture, i met a dog that looked kinda like that, it was a shepard acd mix. i cant tell you thats a definate but thats what the one i met was, same facial patterning and face shape.

I wonder if other dogs think Cresties are members of some weird religious cult?

Lost $ to breed founders because there was no refund after being told my many, many legitimate breeders that it was a puppy mill. Be very careful if you ever decide on this breed.

I''m not sure what I think of Shilohs...It was a good idea in theory but the way it was executed was a bit sketchy...I ahve a friend who used to own one and he was magnificent but at the same time my buddy told me he would never get another one.

To me the dog looks like a Shepherd/ACD mix

Agree on OC's guess about the pictured dog.

I think we had a Shiloh Shepherd breeder on here not too long ago; there's huge dissention within the breed, because the "founder" sucks at what she does, but others have managed to cobble together a decent program. Essentially, they're large GSD's supposedly mixed with wolf...take what you want from that.

The impression I get is that Shilohs are a joke. The dog in the photo doesn't look like any shepherd to me, it looks like a hound/herding mix. Not necc. ACD, that merling coloration appears in many hounds and collie types.
