    Sad German Shepherd, a Threatened Breed

    >Once an icon, bad breeding has earned the German Shepherd a reputation for being sickly and dimwitted. In Germany, police have replaced them with the more aggressive Malinois. But one American breeder is trying to bring classic German Shepherds back.

    Damn breeders who have thought more about profits than keeping the breed healthy.

    It's pretty sad that people care more about the race of their dog than their children.

    I think all sheperd dogs are very nice, especially the German and the Belgian one. Two of my neighbours have German shepherds

    "Designer puppy" farms are very popular in America which is, of course, terrible. I don't know if people are uneducated about the dangers of bad breeding or they just don't care. Whatever it is, it definitely isn't stopping people from breeding sick dogs just to turn a profit. Sometimes people "feel sorry" for the dogs that are obviously victims of puppy farming and purchase them from the breeder for that reason. But that still gives the breeder money! German shepherds are very sweet and loyal dogs. It would be really sad if they went extinct due to someones selfishness.

    I had heard that it was something to do with poor breeding ethics in America, but don't quote me on that, as I'm sure bad practice crosses countries. Degenerative defects affect other pure breeds as well, all due to searching for the quick buck and trends in how they should look. Look at some of the original breeds of some dogs and they are so different as compared to one hundred years ago.

    Heres a site showing working line and show line German Shepherd and North American Shepherd respectively.

    It is a shame because German Shepherds are one of my favourites, being most loyal and fearless companions. Even among cross-breeds that instinct runs strong I have found.

    You are right of course Hersir, but at least with a mongrel dog you can still appreciate it.
