YouTube videos of this German Shepherd, which went Best of Breed at Crufts, the largest dog show in the world, have been circulating.
Years ago, there were videos labelled Pedigree Dogs Exposed and afterwards The Kennel Club, I believe did breed standard reviews and some breeds were actually “on watch”. Breeds should appear fit enough to appear to be capable of doing the function they were breed to do.
Breeds in the Pastoral and Working Groups should appear strong enough to herd sheep, cattle, perform guard duties as well as being family pets with stable temperaments.
Watching the video, the viewers may well wonder how this German Shepherd got selected to be Best of Breed at Crufts, 2016.
