German Shepherd Dog

Lornaville Sea Bird
Sire:- Lornaville Ulysees     Dam:- Lornaville Summer Mist
Breeder:- Mr Roy Brandon     Owner:- Miss JA Hassall

The history of this breed is lost in time, but we do know that long-haired shepherds were shown in Hanover in 1882, and that the short-haired variety was presented in Berlin in 1889. Strange then that it is only the short coated that is shown these days.
It has a slightly elongated body with a light but solid bone structure. It should be sturdy and muscular. The ears are wide at the base, pointed, upright and turned forward. Eyes are almond, never protruding, dark with an intelligent expression. In personality they should be bold, cheerful, obedient, steady, loyal and affectionate with it's master and family, tolerant of other animals and wary of strangers.
Colours are, Black or black saddle with tan, or gold to light grey markings. All black, all grey with lighter or brown marking referred to as Sables. Nose black. Light markings on the chest or colour on inside of legs permissible but undesirable. Blues, livers, albinos, white and near whites are undesirable. Undercoat except in all black dogs usually grey or fawn.

This breed has Kennel Club Challenge Certificates at most Championship Shows.

This breed is shown more like the on the Continent, with dogs running ahead of the handlers on long lines. Outside assistance is NOT permitted and dogs being handled this way can be told to leave the ring. The dogs are stacked in the crouch position, when standing.
At 'Local' shows this is still very much frowned upon, unless under a breed spacific judge. There and in the Main (Group & Best in Show) rings, the dogs are expected to trot beside the handlers.
