Hello,
I am trying to figure out what line my German Shepherd is from. West German, Czech etc.
He is US (AKC) along with his parents, the Sir’s line has some German while the Dam’s have quite a bit of German.
If someone could please help me read his pedigree or tell me something about his lines.
That would be awesome!!

Also, I thought Von is used with Sir’s while Vom is used with Dam’s. I see on his Sir’s side a mix up of the two. If someone could please elaborate on this.
Thank you!!

My dogs name is Swagger Stotts

Here is a link to his Pedigree:

I took a quick look at your dog's pedigree and it's mostly West German Working Lines...Some very nice dogs in the pedigree...SZ is the West German Registration...

So, I have another question regarding Pedigree!
I have another GSD whom is a Sable. His pedigree is very poor until you go 6-7 generations back… now I am seeing a lot of titles in IGP etc. I am also seeing a few Championships, world championships etc.

There’s DDR, SV, Netherlands, Czech, Slovakia, BUT then I see LOSH which I looked up & says it’s Belgian registry, this dog even took a Belgian championship title… Could my German Shepherd have Belgian in him??
Is this normal, possible? Wouldn’t that throw his whole pedigree off & not make him pure?

PLEASE HELP

His pedigree name is: Stotts’ Sable
Skip to 6-7 Gen.
You’ll see what I’m talking about.

Every country has its own registry for purebred dogs. (Okay, some countries have more than one, but let's not confuse the issue.)The abbreviation for the Belgian registry is, as you said, LOSH. It does NOT mean that dog was a Belgian malinois, just that it was a German shepherd born and registered in Belgium! 

If you used this same logic on the dogs born in the Netherlands, that would make your dog part Dutch shepherd, too!  :D

Thank you for clearing that up, Sunsliver!

People who are looking at and trying to decipher pedigrees make the natural mistake that just because a dog is registered in a certain country's registry that that dog must be from that country...I have dogs from Germany and the Czech Republic but are also registered with the AKC but that doesn't make them American...
The registry that the dog is registered in is a good clue to what the dog is but it's certainly not the only thing to know...It's much harder to know what bloodlines a dog has...This takes experience and having studied many pedigrees...
The PDB is a good place to not only look-up and study many dogs and pedigrees but a great opportunity to ask questions...there are many people here who have experience and are willing to help...Just never feel bad to ask questions...We all started at the beginning and learn as we go...
