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.
I hate you so, so much right now

I am NOT saying this is a good breeder, but they have dogs that look like your pic. On the girls page, scroll towards the middle and there are a couple and then towards the bottom:

Again, I can't comment on the quality of the breeder -

I actually know of a GSD breeder that breeds her dogs for working purposes and they have the correct structure like that. I HATE the look of the sloping backed GSDs.

I'll actually be the handler for this breeder in the conformation ring so we'll see how her dogs do against the "show lined" ski hills in the ring.

A lot of the Czech lined GSDs still have the working structure like that as well.

Yea, but from what I've heard about czech lines I think I'd go insane owning one!

Thanks showpug! I'll look at those links as soon as my computer decides to go faster than the speed of smell again, lol.

I s the czech line different in behaviour?

I hope to have a west line female one day.

From what I've heard (and I could be completely wrong) they have extremely high working drives and just want to work all the time and never let their guard down.

I'd be looking for something more along the lines of West German show lines (from what DanL says about them anyway), but I'm sure I'm not going to find a dog that looks like the kind I want in show lines.

WANT!

Okay, apperently this dog left 600+ decendents in Germany. He wasn't so well liked in the US because he was a smaller dog. Something tells me that his decendents wouldn't look to much like him though.

Looking at some of these older types I see a lot of dogs that look like Duke, if his hips where about an inch lower. I saw this dog and thought of him right away.

I don't know of any good breeders who breed dogs like this saddly. I might end up doing it when I get my own house though.

Czech line shepherds tend to be very sharp and have high civil drive.

GSD's tend to be thicker than the original picture with deeper chests, but it is NOT hard to find one with good, old school structure.

One of the guys who comes to our club has a Czech line dog. They mature VERY slowly and are highly defensive. Most of the time when you have a dog that was bred for border patrol type duties, they are lower in prey drive and higher in defense, which develops slowly. This guy's dog is a year old and shows no prey drive at all, and no defense yet. Yet his parents are police dogs- so the ability is there, just slow to develop.

You can also find this kind of structure in the DDR type GSD's. We have one of those at our club as well. He's a lot smaller than Gunnar both in weight and height but he's a badass dog! 100***37; working line breeding, most of his breeders dogs go for police/military/prison work.
