Now days, I think far more breeders sell all their puppies but require spaying/neutering of any animals not up to their standards. I think this is a reasonable approach, as long as the standards include more than cosmetic issues.

I think the mass breeders sell everything regardless of health, conformation, temperament or breed standards. As long as it has "papers" someone will sell it.

And there's a "registry" for every cockamamie mix you can think up. Jimmy (technically a mutt: aussie x poodle cross) could be registered with the "Hybrid Dog Club". Apparently "Hybrid" is the new name for "mixed breed"....LOL!!!!

I too find the AKC, exaggerated "slope back" GSD breed standard to be an affront against nature. [emoticon]

Gretchen, being merely pet quality, is very similar to the "old days" GSD pictured in the video towards the end. [emoticon]

So Gretchen's a REAL dog, huh?? :-)

The show GSDs look like they survived a horrific accident - barely. Of all the creatures that walk on 4 legs, they ONLY one I can think of that moves like a show GSD is a hyena - and that's hardly something to emulate.....

Some additional thoughts from terrierman which apply to ALL closed registries.

Inbred Thinking

Mark

I know of a few breeds from several species which require a genetic mutation to be considered part of the breed.(example genetic mutation: myotonia congenita)
