  •  I used to go to sheep dog trials @ Fosterfields... (0+ / 0-)

    ... near Morristown NJ when I lived down there, and it was a joy to see these dogs do their work.  The ones who weren't working could often be seen sitting side by side watching the one who was out there, herding & cutting, and my husband & I imagined them thinking, "Good move!" or "Over there!"

    One year we were asked to sign petitions protesting the AKC recognizing border collies as a breed for purposes of show, and there was a lot of supporting documentation, including observations like yours about German Shepherds.  Being more of a cat person, it was the first time I had really thought about the impact of breeding for looks instead of brains.

    Would that more people did.  

    They are cute, but that's no excuse.
    It is animal abuse at a profound level.
