term "sporty" isn't "misnomer/inaccurate" term. prevailing majority of present GSD so call "working lines" stock are sporty type, which is recognizable from hyped up temperamental activity, lack of brain/soberness of attitude toward surroundings, absence of selfdignity and proudness in those dogs.
maybe you should contact Old Guard kennel. it's run by Dani in Romania, about same distance from Spain like Czech and Slovakia.
sport obviously not his goal in breeding. as i understand his activity is to preserve as much as possible an old DDR/East Europe type of practical GS dogs.
if you have facebook, perhaps you may get in touch over his page

He stated back then, that he no longer offers papers with any of his litters. That may not be a problem if you were not interested in breeding or competing.
That was the only reason that I never bought a pup from him.
He was very genuine in his correspondences and hopefully in the future, he will reconsider his policy.

from his posts on FB it seems that there no reconsideration in regard of registration. but after all he obviously not a commercial breeder and looks like doing this just by motivation from his own memories about GS dogs of his youth.
modern not necessarily mean better. i do have experience of owning eastern GS in past and modern western GS in present and unlike phones or TVs i would pretty much prefer to have back that old eastern type of german shepher dog.
i had communication with nowadays breeders and to many of them i do have respect for their honesty, openness, dedication but at same time did become clear - they don't know/can't grasp an idea that german shepherd dogs can be way different and much more practical, than what they have grown with, know and breed today.

I agree compeletly about your statements on sports dogs when one breeds fro sports that is what you get a Ferrari is not a daily car to drive around sure its nice to own they are a very fast car could go to the track but it is useless in daily life imagine taking the Ferrari to do some grocery shopping. You breed for sports that what you will get a dog only good for sports.
