|I also would like to share my success with oversize male; long time ago crhuerta on this forum offered me free show line standard size puppy in exchange of neutering my oversize male, I rejected that offer and decided to breed my male anyway.|
Here is my combination that I did with breeding:
Here is the outcome, here is one of the off spring puppy from this combination,
My goal was to see If I could produce oversize dog with mental abillity for Schh3, because many breeders breed oversize dogs as a pets ONLY which I don't like, but I would like to have strong mental oversize dog.
This puppy is 6 weeks old in this picture.

Guy's be careful she's fighting a war against her own stupidity.

|I never said this puppy is Schutzhund puppy, it's my experiment of breeding - and I have every right to do it, their is no world law that you cannot do it and I'm not breaking a law; and if you guys mocking me, I don't care.|
I originally had not intentions breeding oversize when I bought my male puppy, I never knew he is going to be extra large.

|I think stupidity won the war. You didn't expect your pup to become oversized, but you still breed it?|

|Lol, it's really fun for me to mess with people who are strong believer against oversize GSD's, I know from my personal experience that my oversize male have alot more torque power vs. my standard size working line male that I have - but my standard size male has more horse power vs. my oversize GSD.|
From Shtal :-)

From your personal experience, eh? You wouldn't happen to be letting the dogs torque you, if you catch my drift?

Please don't start with me - because - foolish and ignorant questionings I will avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes.
I made my decision about breeding, let it rest in peace :-)
by Donald Deluxe on 22 September 2011 - 06:18
|Unfortunately, what's gonna be resting in peace about three years before their time is these oversized creatures you produced.|

|Dear Donald, this is my last post to you!|
I'm not producing creatures, I'm human; I would I assume you are talking here about breeding oversize or "unexceptable" dog with another dog....
Take care :-)
By the way - I have a good news for you sir, this is ONLY my temporary experiment, I really want to see what happens when you take a perfect german shepherd and make it bigger size without sacrificing mentality and at the same time - NOT converting german shepherd into pet dog.
I'm still in a learning process understanding how wolves is a different animal - going over 100 pounds mark and still yet strong and fast animal.
EDIT: Long time ago I did NOT know much about oversize.
Honestly, right now - If I was buying a german shepherd I would go for standard size - since I like speed of the dog, I use to test our working line male that we have - ability how fast he could run and how long it will take him before he runs out of gas at long range running.

|Its not against the law, and not illegal, but it is immoral to the GSD.|
Its easy for you, your body doesn't have to carry the extra weight throughout its life, and the burden on its health.
Big GSD's probably sell well to the naive buyers, the young family getting their first dog, easily separated from their dollars.
These dogs can't work in Law Enforcement, they can't work in Afghanistan protecting our protectors, they can't thrive in sport, and they can't better the breed for future generations.
Good luck with your experiments!

|I don't try and bash people- I have an oversized GSD, he's just under 32" at the shoulders, his weight varies from 118-122 and he's neutered. He's going to be 7 in November, his muzzle has a lot of gray, his feet have gone from tan to tan with a lot of white, so far we've had no health problems but he's slowing down. I had no idea he would be so big and I love him regardless, he's a great dog but I worry I will lose him young due to his SIZE. An experiment should be for objects not living creatures that may suffer the consequences. Breeding should be left to those who have the knowledge and understanding of genetics. Getting a puppy is a crap shoot, but you shouldn't handicap an animal needlessly- there's a purpose for the breed standard. I will stop whining and wish you and yours the best of luck and hope you find homes that will commit to the puppies completely. Jennifer|
