    Look, I'm partial to the "Old Style" GSD. Zena appears "Old Style."
    I prefer their conformation any day to the modern "roach back." Their temperament IS different IMO, I believe it is NOT just an old wive's tale.
    Will be interested to see how Logan moves. She is a roach back.
    A funny story from the past which relates to Zena's structure ....

    She was performing beautifully in the ring & when we left after our "individual exercises", I got stopped by this chappie that I'd seen at various trials. He always has beautiful Sheps that hardly lose any points in the ring. He said "She works beautifully" & asked "What's her lineage". I was so dumb in those days, so I didn't understand & was very confused as to why his jaw dropped when I proudly said "Pet Store". We chatted for a while & he determined from having a really good look at her, that she had come from British lines. It didn't matter to me where she came from. She was my wonder dog & made me proud every time she stepped into a ring.

    I don't, but the internet will have plenty of them. You can search for pictures that show the conformation of skeleton between the two, plus the end result with flesh and fur etc.

    well according to the RSPCA yes..and i cant see anything else in her, apart from being smaller than other sheps she has all the colour, markings, body shapes, and intelligence of a shep the RSPCA said she was small due to being extremely malnourished in her first year of life
