OT: Kind of random, but anyone know of a German Shepherd breeder in So Cal?
I am looking around for a German Shepherd puppy and wondering if anyone has some first hand recommendations. Kind of random, but you never know.
Look for a "Schutzhund" GSD. Buy an import (german) dog, not an american dog. Look for a breeder that breeds for Schutzhund.

speaking of big dog breeds....interesting dog trivia
Hercules: The World's Biggest Dog Ever According to Guinness World
Records. Hercules was recently awarded the honorable distinction of Worlds Biggest
Dog by Guinness World Records. Hercules is an English Mastiff and who has
a 38 inch neck and weighs 282 pounds.
With "paws the size of softballs" (reports the Boston Herald), the
three-year-old monster is far larger and heavier than his breed's
standard 200lb. limit. Hercules owner Mr. Flynn says that Hercules weight is
natural and not induced by a bizarre diet: "I fed him normal food and he just
"grew"... and grew. and grew. and grew.
Kell, a younger English Mastiff: Slightly Smaller, but the World's Heaviest Dog Hercules' sheer
volume may have won him the Largest Dog world record, but the Heaviest Dog title
still rests with Kell who weighed in at 286 pounds in August of 1999.
This English Mastiff, however, only has a 32-inch neck - far less than
Hercules' 38-incher. Think about that for a second though - 32 inches is a standard
waist size for a man!
Proud owner Tom Scott said Kell is two years old and is expected to
continue to grow for the next two years. Kell needs to be fed 100lb of
beef every week, and drinks gallons of goats' milk to stay healthy.
how do you paste pictures? (The interesting trivia has to have the incredible picture that goes with it.)
