Hi,
Welcome to chazhound!
It looks to me like a full bred siberian husky we have one but she is not full bred.
I would ask the vet or a breeder.

As far as the conformation of the NA GSD goes, I'm not similar with a racking horse nor their gait so I honestly can not compare the two. I do know when looking over a stacked GSD I hate seeing how it looks like their standing on their hocks. (Thinking that's the right word, my brain isn't working at the moment you know what I mean though).

Personally I love West German showlines, pretty dogs that CAN work.
I almost cried the first time I saw a stable where racking horses were boarded and trained. I hope it wasn't typical, but I'm afraid it probably was. The horses are kept in their individual paddocks except for the time they are being worked by their trainer. Their feet stay weighted all the time. They are trained to hold their hocks down in an artificial slope, much like the slope of the hindquarters of the modern GSD show dog. The gait is very wonderful and smooth for the rider; front feet lifted very high, back feet gliding and all but dragging with each step - very much like watching the GSD in the show ring. The rider glides along, but it certainly doesn't look like a natural or comfortable gait for the beast. Just once I'd like to see one of these beautiful horses decided it's had enough and throw a rider in the middle of a show!

What is wrong with us that we can't stand to allow creatures to be themselves?

The first time I ever saw a Fila was at this rich guys house. We were doing a plumbing job there (I lasted two weeks) and when we pulled up, there were two "bloodhoundish" looking dogs that ran up to the truck and stared at us. The woman living there runs out and says to the dogs "they are O-K". We got out and the dogs sniffed us, and then followed us around while she showed us the problem. Well, it turned out it was a huge deal and the bathroom floor was going to have to be torn up and while we were waiting for the jackhammer and some other stuff to arrive, I asked her about the dogs, and she said they were Fila Brasileros. I had never heard of the breed before. The one dog (they had cutesy Brazilian names) decided I was ok, and got pretty friendly with me right away. The other dog, the younger one, was ok, but really didn't care anything about me one way or another. What got me was all the standing they both did on their back legs checking us out and just doing it because they liked it. The one kept looking over the top of the couch all the time looking at us (mostly me petting his buddy). We were there several days and by the end, both dogs were my buddies, but the guys I worked with weren't treated as nicely as I was. The dogs got in between them and the 2 little kids, but I noticed right away they never did it to me. If a dog doesn't like me, a lot, it's usually not "right".

I ran into the same people a couple of years later at the local dog show and the older dog was there, and he climbed up on me as soon as he saw me. They were shocked at this, as he was usually cool towards people he didn't see all the time.

That speaks very highly of you, Ratboy. Filas are famous for the ojeriza, the strong , natural aversion to strangers. Some Filas have 'harder' dispositions that others. Our Buffy was extremely hard; not only did she have to know you very well and accept you, if you were somewhere she didn't think you belonged she'd get torqued. And she really seemed to enjoy the fact that she could make anyone or anything afraid of her. I loved her beyond all reason, but I'll have to admit she had a sadistic streak in that monumental ego of hers.

Shiva still hasn't met a stranger! She's the friendliest Fila in the history of the breed, and everyone just loves her, although I've been warned that she could come into a real temperament as she matures or when she has a litter. Kharma's not quite as hard as Buffy was at this age, but she's definitely shaping up to have the classic Fila temperament.

That behaviour you saw of the Fila getting between the kids and strangers is classic. If you've got a Fila, you certainly don't have to worry about anyone snatching your kids! On the other hand, you don't want the neighbor kids to rough house with your kids in case the dog thinks they're not playing, but that holds true for any breed of dog. And I certainly don't worry about being here by myself when Charlie's got to go to the big furniture markets!

Good post Serena! You hit the nail on the head.
Dont forget the fact that you can also loose your ***** during complications. My Grace is probably going to whelp tonight. (Her temp dropped this morning) I am sooo stressed out and will probably spend the night in the whelping room. She is a reg hungarian Vizsla and we have put a lot of thought and planning into this. Last year we did an AI with a false pregnancy as a result.

so i was wondering if there was anyway of identifying whether she was full bred or not?

(sorry about the pictures, she wouldnt give me a decent shot)

this is at 9 months old (now)

and this was at christmas

First of all, no matter whoever I speak to I always tell them NEVER EVER to buy a dog from a pet shop. Most pet shops purchase their dogs from puppy mills which are outright cruel and keep the dogs in disgusting conditions. Many dogs coming from pet shops will actually develop health problems because of the fact that puppy mills just don't care about the parents health, or that of the puppies. Furthermore alot of puppies that go into pet shops are too young to be taken from their mother in the first place. Its sad that you didn't look into a dog from a shelter or a reputable breeder before you went to a pet shop. However, I do hope you're lucky and your dog doesn't suffer from alot of health problems like I have witnessed with dogs coming out of shops. I hope that you also do some research and never recommend anybody buying their pets from a pet shop again. Good luck with your new dog.
