Jewel, I am so sorry that I accidently re-posted your post! Whoops!
I have a feeling that he doesn't know a thing about the different lines of GSD. He is more of a "Hey! My dog has testicles!" type of breeder than someone who breeds to better the breed (the main reason). Most of the oversized breeders are making it worse . The GSD doesn't need any more problems.
The oversized ones (I'm not talking about the occasional 90 pound one or whatever, I'm talking about the ones that are bred to be like that) are mainly furry, massive, grossly deformed mammoths. If I wanted a GSD I'd get a working line (Show lines, Ack)
One day I may start a small breeding program to get chinooks out there and preserve them, but I wouldn't breed out of the standard. I'd only have females (3 or so active ones, and then Delta, too much hormones)
Tiller, I am also sorry for saying something about OFAs when you already did. I'm not very observant . LOL.
Reading what he said to you (I didn't really read the article prior to posting, I'd already discovered him and was afraid I'd have a heart attack!) almost mad me ruin my new laptop by spitting my hot tea out at the screen!
I also noticed that he (1) isn't concerned with his dogs' nutrition and (2) he seems to buy things that are cheap (again, I love finding a sale, but seriously, a good breeder will NOT feed Eukanuba crap!).
I have to admit though, his dog Emerald is a cutie! Poor thing. She now has to live a life of misery.
Sorry 'bout the long article everyone! Nice job as always Tiller! Best of luck!
