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!!!!

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)

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

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

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.....
