Because of the war and the bombardment of of London, there was a serious animosity to anything German - so the Brits called the German Shepherd the Alsation. Did not want to have a "German" dog at that time.

That is the problem with externally hosted photos.  They get deleted from the host or restricted and nothing we can do for that.  Best thing is if it is not copyrighted to just upload them here - they will be here almost forever.

  I do have a few other articles on "selection" if you wish for me to post them. Let me dig them up and I will post them when I get the chance. I have them on my computer, but I want to proof read them as it has been a while since I last looked at them.  Hi Lee, did you ever find those other articles? Would still love to see them.

i used to have some irish wolfhounds and they were so strong and they like to run but it is hard to find good ones because all they do is breed them for show at least for the most part. it is hard to find one that is really tough instead of soft. that old photo of the great dane reminds me of how wolfhounds used to look

Those are very nice dogs - very similar to the Bully Kutta and the Gull Dong which are renowned fighting dogs. The Kohati is developed as a hunter and guardian. Read more here.

I seen this dog for sale online. It looks well cared for, fit, nice coloring, it's listed at 31'' height and 22 months and for sale in Lahore, Pakistan. Any thoughts on the breed of this dog? It's listed as a bulldog.

  it sure would be nice to see dogs like that again!  Come to Australia. They're called pig dogs, cheap as dirt too.

Yes. The "fluff" is also a chronic welfare issue as these dogs suffer for the way they look, it's what's termed "qualzucht" breeding. Breeding for intentional deformities, line bred for exaggerations that win in the show ring. Ever more exaggerated in type until the breed is a wreck of dysfunctionality. Useless for work or for a pet.

  It all works synergistically for my dog and I've had great results.  There you have it.  The trick is to find what works for your dog and stick with it. We have been feeding raw for about 14 years. Going to introduce some kibble as the price of meat is so damn high these days.

  Yes no exaggerations. Of course show breeders would call this dog not typy enough, even though this is exactly what the Great Dane was always intended to look like  That is an awesome photo of an awesome representative of the breed. All stuff and no fluff.

How is everything going now that you used a limited source for months?  I have a client that is having similar issues, wanting to convince them in making the switch off of kibble.

Thanks Gary. I usually do just that but, the one time you dont and.....latest version of Apple's operating system and yet **#!!!@%*!  I wanted to say what a fabulous guardian dog Ceddy has turned out to be. What a charming character and just how athletic this dog is. He has long legs and a light though heavy boned frame, rangy is how I would best describe him, tuck up like a wolf. Not something you could guess from the picture. Most of this is hair, his cool season coat. He is an incredible

Forgot to mention that the setting of this photo and the dog is very beautiful.

Hey Anthony, when I am writing something long I do it in a text editor and then copy and past it incase the gremlins of the web decide to screw thing up.  :)

Yes no exaggerations. Of course show breeders would call this dog not typy enough, even though this is exactly what the Great Dane was always intended to look like......it has bone substance and built for speed, functional. A working dog with none of all the health problems we see in todays Great Danes.  They also lived for a long time even the early show dogs. Today they go downhill at about five!
