That's exactly what I did the first time with the picture of Jack.

But I can't seem to bring up any more photos! They are jpg so they should happen.....

Let me try again.

Jack says thanks for your compliment!

Alot of the GSD's that you see now are indeed sloped. These are mostly from Canadian/American lines. This is the way the CKC and AKC and many others have set their standard for that breed. Mainly the breeders that breed for showing have the more pronounced sloping dogs. Some are so sloped their butt is 3 inches off the ground, and their hocks are scraping along the ground. And that is because of intense line-breeding. Those breeders should be ashamed of the way they've messed up!!!!

What I was used to seeing as a child were the more stockier straight back types. And those were mostly from German lines and Shiloh lines. And that's what I have now. A GSD from German lines.

Here's a link to some photos of the GSD then, and now.

Thanks for the compliment Joanne!

Jack is just over 5 years young. The picture was taken when he was 3 and right now he has a little more grey around his muzzle.

Here's a photo I took the other day.

Jack sure is handsome! Hopefully you are a good owner (and I am sure you are!)- when I was 6 I was attacked by a german shepard. I blame the owner, not the dog! I was riding my bike down the road and suddently there were jaws on my leg! He pulled me off my bike - luckily my Mom was behind me and got the dog off, but not before he inflicted permanant scars - we looked over and the owners were in their yard, laughing! ! ! Luckily this didn't affect my feelings toward dogs - I love them all! It's the bad owners that are a problem! This was 30 years ago - and the memory is still vivid! Enjoy Jack - I'm sure he is a wonderful and well behaved dog!
