How many years have breeders been
breeding and INTERBREEDING the gsd? How did a short close coated dog beget puppies with long coats?
When you breed two short coated dogs that only have the genes for short tight coats together, you are going to get
short coats, that is how dominate the short coat is when you have 100 years of breeding true to standards. So how did the
long coated gsd get that long coat?
In my opinion and expertize I can say with conviction that it came from breeding with GSD breeders who bred dogs with
FALSE pedigrees. Those breeders may have known about the false pedigrees or, they may not have known, as such things are frowned
upon and MUST be HIDDEN! One can lose all respect and be thrown out of the AKC for falsifying paperwork.
No one can tell me that breeders do not outcross or mix puppies up or breed with dogs that may have a shotty pedigree’s
with questionable lineage. Tina Barber did it while she was registered as an AKC Kennel. She outcrossed her German Shepherd
dogs to Belgians, Great Danes, Pyrenees and/or other breeds. She also put AKC papers on her so called PURE bred dogs.
Other GSD breeders used her dogs to gain size and coat and again got AKC papers on their dogs. The KING shepherds used
Tina’s stock to produce their King sized GERMAN Shepherd Dogs. How many other back yard breeders also used such stock
and carried on the usage of AKC paperwork?
I don’t want to just attack Tina; it’s just one person in a million who have done the same thing. Why?
Supply and demand.
Today you see the long coated, the very long coated, the THICK undercoats of cottony hair. You even have some curl
in some of the coats. Who knows maybe one day here in America you will have the curly coated GSD and the Wire coated GSD.
If folks want them, somehow, the stories will go.... "We got a curly coated gsd in one of our litters with AKC papers"
Then someone will make up another story saying that “a long , long time ago”... there was such a thing and it
must have just happened! B.S. If you buy that, you bought the Long Coat
and I have some beach front property in Arizona I would like to sell you.
Now, let’s take the Shiloh... have you read the standards? There is absolutely no consistency yet in that breed.
The Shiloh Shepherd Dog standards also CONTRIDICT themselves.
The Shiloh as a breed is still under construction.
When an established breeder consistently breeds per the standards and gets dogs that look like the standards calls for, then
that one breeder is breeding true to the breed.
Let’s take the King Shepherd. Have you read the standards? The King Shepherd Dog Club and its By-Laws, (rules
and history) hide many facts about where this dog came from, which I guess is ok, once the breed is established... Once again,
the breed is NOT established because they have not fit the criteria for an established breed as of yet. They, like the Shiloh,
are still in the developmental stages. By the way, the King Shepherd also outcrossed into other breeds of dogs, including:
the Shiloh (which back then was a mix), the Great Pyr. and the Newfoundlander. All new breeds come from a mixture of other
breeds, but people and clubs with integrity and honesty, come forward and tell the truth about who bred to whom.
There is more to be considered with rare breeds or undeveloped breeds that have an effect on the breed itself, that
is, the Breed Club and the truths or character of the people who established the club and the standards etc...
There is a chance one takes when purchasing such dogs for say, breeding and or showing and any investment into the
dog club or breed club. If however you are only looking for a pet, then it is only the ONE pup that you really need to consider
besides, knowing some facts on the pups’ heredity and such.
The American Alsatian gov body NAAC, sent
to the copywriter and bought the name "ALSATIAN" in the year 2011. The book the Alsatian Shepalute was printed in 2005. The
name Shepalute was dropped in 2010.
Here is a page link that you should go
to in order to really understand the name and wording of the Alsatian and what it means...
