Just kidding, he's a working line GSD from Dean Calderon. The little coyote remark is because when you compare a german working line pup to a german showline pup, the working lines look a little like coyotes compared to their cousins! just measured & weighed him - he's 27 inches at the shoulder & 80lbs, so I'm happy with his size.
Hahaha Susan that was funny. I've heard the name before. Maybe it was even seeing some of his dogs somewhere before, but I like them! It could be my Malinois background, but the size and appearance work for me. What is his drive like? When I was in california everyone though my dogs were ugly coyotes and as long as they don't want to get one for a yard decoration then I'll take it as a compliment! LOL
So far I'm very happy with his prey drive. He is ball crazy & will work for food (he is a pig). Defense comes out very easily so I'm leaving well enough alone for now since he's just a pup. Nerves are good & he can take a correction & bounce back, although most everything I'm doing is motivational to this point. I agree about the size thing. Way too many oversized GSD's for my taste. A medium size GSD has much more agility than the big ones in general. As for the looks department, I'm a firm believer in "pretty is as pretty does".
