    What im suggesting is the pose show dogs are put in, exagerate this look. Coz somewhere, so idiot thought it looks good.
    Personally, im in favour of working show lines as the temperments of many show dogs leave a lot to be desired in my mind.
    The slope back is not the roach back....the roach back has a curve in it when the dog stands/walks and many are also cow hocked. There are many GSD's around with this problem. And it is due to the BAD breeders that this has happened and many are still sold to unsuspecting new puppy owners. Many of these poor dogs have the lower roach back, without posing and many end up with or have HD. Some look dreadful when they move forward in their pacing action, which is how they are shown. The good breeders are trying very hard to get beyond this and when the dogs are bred belonging to the GSD Clubs they are less likely to have this. the dogs bred are checked for conformation and temp and have to also perform. That is why you should check for the ear tattoos in the GSD and go through the GSD Clubs.
    I love GSD's and we still do a lot with our local GSD Club LOL we are honorary members because we do the Obedience demo team with them and we do tracking with them. Most of my friend own GSD's and do conformation showing, obedience and tracking (search and rescue)

    Thanks for that update this is what I was looking for as I knew I was off track but you have got me back now.
    Diesel only has the sloped back when he is standing and walking. It looks like a bounce when he walks and I feel his back legs are under too much strain, but this look could be me looking at his dog compaired to mine.
    But Diesel doesn't have a roach back as when he is seated it is straight all the way fromt he tail to the top of his neck.

    By looking at the parents.......And If the Breeder has any other dogs, look at them too. A responsible GSD Breeder will not have them, but there are still many who will. Good Breeders now have the GSD Tattoo in their ears. I would always ask to see their credentials.

    Yea I don't like that "hyena" type look on the GSD.

    I saw one the other day who was so sloed he looked like he was sitting. His bak legs were all crazy and wonky and he didnt even look comfortable walking with his "heels" basically hitting each other each step.

    Like others have said, most dogs will be great guard dogs once they mature. My SPCA special (lab x of some sort) is literally the best weve had (he would be excellent for protection work) and then my wee foxy/shih tzu x is retty good too...shes just not scary lol

    I like that way that you (Lala) has said it.
    I think this is a way to say it as I can ses it being like that as is my sons Shepard is.
    I will have to ask him if his dog has the tattoo's.
    Though i do know he bought him from a breeder. But as it has been mentioned.
    I don't think he done too much research on them he just wanted a Shepard to look after his wife while he was at work as he is a cop.
    So to that end I did understand why he got one.
    But he had to get it under direction from his wife who said that their dog would have to be as well trained as Lacey. My last Red Heeler.

    Have seen this topic brought up many many times, and am still none the wiser. If these sloped back (cockroach) dogs are permitted and promoted in the show ring, then what stops them also having the GSD tattoo?


    Are these tattoo's numbered with the breeders unique ID or just have GSD on them?


    Lastly....What prevents a dodgy breeder doing the same thing?

    There is always the unsavory person who will try to cheat. The tatoo is numbers, these can be identified back to breeders. i think if you look into the recent showing you will not see many make the grade in GSD specialty shows, because the dogs get put through a lot of effort, such as fast pacing etc. The Conformation (all breed) shows still have a lot of them. GSD's do not have to have tatoos.


    and here is the GSD Standard

    Like I said to Angel - it helps to meet the breeders and their dogs. Going to visit a GSD club in your area will help. You will find out who the best breeders are and get to meet them, and hopefully impress them with your puppy home credentials.

    You might want to click on my "puppies for sale" link to learn more - there's heaps of articles there about how to choose a responsible breeder of excellent quality dogs.
