Hello all, I have quick question, and any help would be much appreciated. Would someone be so kind to help me understand the lines of my German Shepherd? More specifically the bottom side of his sires side starting with Jetta. I've search around and really can't find any clarity. The link is below. Thank you all for your help.

Here's the kennel Jetta is from: http://felderhaus.com/our-german-shepherds/ They have very solid working line dogs, and I see nothing that raises any red flags. However, they obviously weren't happy with Jetta: she is not listed as one of their dogs anymore, though she does have her own page: http://felderhaus.com/dogs/jetta-vom-feldhaus/
I don't get why they would not do any training with her, yet use her for breeding. Since the kennel is in Kentucky, and she now has a CKC registration number, she obviously was sold to someone in Canada.
Her sire's line isn't very remarkable. Several of the dogs were likely well-loved pets whose owners took the time to get a few titles on them in obedience and schutzhund. I assume you're familiar with the abbreviations? Follow it back far enough, and you find some very well know East German working dogs, plus some of the very early showlines (Wienerau, Kirschental, etc.)
The dam's side has one untitled dog from Holland, then gets into really well-known working line dogs from Germany and Holland.
Both sides of her pedigree go back to Bosen Nachbarschaft dogs, and Fero, which are very popular working line dogs.
So, the pedigree is a bit of a mixed bag, but I'd say the good outweighs the bad. There are many well known working line dogs in it, and the although your dog's parents and grandparents aren't particularly well known dogs, the kennels they are from are making every effort to produce dogs that can really work. Even most of the owners further back in your dog's pedigree, who obviously weren't into breeding in a big way, still made some effort to work and title their dogs, even if it was to just get a CD obediece title (companion dog).
