Maybe you ought to post your rules before I post anymore on what I can like and dislike.
well, were talking about working breeds here and bad breeders, ruining temperaments in dogs. the extension of that is almost always that "show breeders" dont care for temperament or working ability. maybe i made an assumption that you would continue with this notion as others have done prior to this - i am just pointing out that this is not a working line of dogs, and in this thread we have already picked apart american v. euro dogs and show v. working dogs. no need to get all in a tizzy about it! it was a joke, hence the smilie face.
sorry about your accident, i didnt realize you were in one! have you decided which breeder you are getting your GSD from? ive looked at a ton of breeders for my potential dobe pup, but im finding it hard to commit to one now! ive grown up with GSD's and my family currently has 2 (my grandfather trains at the main kennel for the seeing eye, and his two GSDs back in NJ are currently from their breeding program), but I have to admit that dobe's are my main passion - though I LOVE a good bicolor bitch - i think i just have a thing for black and tan
id also love a well-bred rottie - ive looked at esmond rotties recently, but i am so far away from actually obtaining a rottie! ill probably adopt a rescued bitch soon and prepare more for a future puppy, depending on what litters actually hit the ground!
do you currently show your GSD (in your sig)?
