A very nice video, Raphael. One of my favourite breeds. Emotion: smile They are sooooo adorable when puppies!
German Shepherds are the most beautiful and smart dogs. They are strong and faithfull, intelligent and playful. That's why they are so common as guard dogs and police dogs! I love them so much.
Shepherds seem so intelligent. Nice dogs. They have such kind eyes.
I cannot deny these dogs are beautiful, they are my favourite breed but I hate the fact people are breeding them for the sloped back. This is NOT how they are meant to look. How did we deviate away so much from the original GSD who had a beautiful square back? THAT is what the GSD is meant to look like.

I have been to many dog show with friends and everytime I see a GSD in the ring I want to cry. I just know that in a couple of years their hips will collapse underneath them.

I am so thankful that the Kennel Club (in Britain) is coming down hard on this. Long live the good strong square backs!
Woah... I didn't know people could do that with Shepherds! Do you have some pics with normal Shepherds and those with a sloped back? I've just tried to find some in the net but failed. I think it's cruel to do that with dogs, I mean the ring they have to "wear" due to their owner's whim. Emotion: sad

I sure do hun!!!

This is thought to be one of the first German Shepherds. See how it has a good strong solid square back. This dog has been bred for a job and can do it WELL.


This is a modern day working german shepherd. Again note the good strong back


This is my girl (she came from a working farm)


And this is a show GSD Emotion: sad

Why in a breed where hip dysplasia is already a problem do breeders intentionally breed for this look?!
OMG!! This really looks terrible, how can people find any beauty in this?? Emotion: surprise Like someone hit the dog's back with a heavy thing and it became squat! No no no this is no beauty. It's ugly and unnatural. Emotion: sad
Oh... I must agree with you, girls. I don't like the look, either. But if this tendency gets more and more popular, as I could figure out from your words sequeena, it means that more and more people like it? I wonder why!
