My main interest in Shilohs is their coat/size/apperance and their companionship.
These dogs just strike my fancy.

Please DO NOT compare Shiloh's or "old fashioned" driveless monsters to a REAL GSD, it gives people misconceptions about the breed and people need to understand a GSD is NOT an easy going couch potato, then NEED to work.

I'm sorry if I came across that way. I didn't mean too.

well I can see that a lot of GSD people aren't fond of the breed. :P

I love the way they look, but I've only ever seen one in person, and I don't actually know much about them....

Oh, and weren't they bred from GSD? I thought I remember seeing somewhere that they started from a breeder who wanted to go back to early GSDs... maybe that's why everyone calls them "old school," even though they actually developed into something completely different?

You know of a dog that has had SEVERAL bites? And he's still around? Sounds like a loose cannon to me!
Preaching to the choir, trust me. Although I will say, I think it is mostly a management issue at this point.

They were, but there is other stuff mixed in. Malamute for sure, I know. You can mutate a breed pretty quickly if you are selecting for certain traits. I was under the impression for the small bit I've read that the whole "breeding for the old - style GSD" was pretty much a tagline for the original breeder, who, as mentioned above, isn't considered a 'good' breeder at all. I think it came from the attempt to breed for more square hips and a level back, and less in regards the the size/temperment.

Yeah, too bad all you need to do to get a level back is to get a working line dog!

There was one at the kennel I worked at this summer. Extra large teddy bear really. Was nothing like any GSD I've ever met. Supremely passive. Awfully pretty, I like them, I just wouldn't ever want one.
