WOW. I would want a GSD like that. And I wouldn't care if it came from a BYB so long as there were no major health or temperament issues.

Some of the kennels with European lines turn out dogs like that . . . especially the solid hind end.

Most GSD owned by army-police in Croatia look like that.Germany also has some working lines that look similar to that GSD.And yes the only GSD this days that I would consider owning would be from working lines and breed to look like that.

actually, if you want to know, that pretty much mirrors the structure of the current Seeing Eye breeding lines of GSD
I never even thought about that, though I doubt I'll ever be getting a dog from them, thanks!

Check out kennels trying to breed the Alsatian look, they tend to look like that pic
Will do!

Honestly, that's most likely where I would get one

If I went with a breeder it would probably be from working lines (or west german show lines, def. not American), but that would also mean waiting until I would be able to handle a working line dog.

Side note: There are some really, really good looking GSD's in shelters that I think look better than the show or working GSDs.
That's what I was going to say. I went with my friend yesterday to pick up three dogs that were turned into her rescue; two GSD and a ACD. The shepherds are STUNNING. I think she was told they were W. German imports. Both are six year old males, and have some of the nicest builds I've seen (well, in my opinion) on a shepherd. They have the sloping back, but not that extreme, funky hind-end thing. Besides which, they are housebroken, crate trained, and beautifully tempered.

PWCorgi - Want to come up to Vermont and get one?

I've noticed this as well and it confuses me. As against BYBing as I am...sometimes they have the better looking dogs. My cousin's GSD is a fabulous looking dog and his pedigree isn't anything worth looking at. This is not a recommendation for BYB's, but it's...interesting...

It's probably because the more "extreme" structural aspects of the show GSD are easy to lose if they aren't selected for in most breedings, Zoom.

But even the heads are nice...many-most BYB's have very thin, snipey looking heads or funky muzzles...dunnos. Mysteries of breeding I guess.
