Preserving the DDR lines implies standing still, not improving the line. We need to preserve the image of the breed as it was and build on top just as they would have done. The most important thing we can do is to retain the DDR body style & type while maintaining and improving as strong as genetic diversity as we possibly can for the health of the breed. The standards we look for include powerful, deep chested bodies with almost straight square frames, intimidating presence and supreme intelligence. Working abilities include tracking, athleticism, toughness, climbing abilities, hardiness, and the ability to withstand extreme physical conditions and demands. These are the strict guidelines imposed on the breed, and resulted in the creation of the DDR Shepherd one the finest working animals the world has ever had, with thanks to a few. Please note that most of the best dogs for breeding and security in the DDR did not go to the Military they went to friends and families of the breeders. They can make, with proper guidance some of the best family pets you will ever have. This lines are amazing, and as each member of your family is different from the next, puppies are no different. One sister/brother may excel in martial arts, police or military while one is best suited as a care giver, a nurse or doctor. Some of our puppy's are best suited for family life, some as protection dogs and some for Police and Military. Once your needs are identified we will help you choose the right new family member or partner.
The communist German Democratic Republic was established in the historic "Mitteldeutschland" ( Middle Germany ). Former German territories east of the Oder and Neisse rivers, mainly the Prussian provinces of Pomerania , East Prussia , West Prussia , Upper Silesia , Lower Silesia , the eastern Neumark of Brandenburg , and a small piece of Saxony were thus detached from Germany. To compensate Poland for the USSR's annexation of its eastern provinces, the Allies provisionally established Poland's post-war western border at the Oder–Neisse line at the Yalta Conference (1945). As a result, most of Germany's central territories became the Sowjetische Besatzungszone (SBZ, Soviet Occupation Zone). All other lands east of the Oder–Neisse line were put under Polish administration, with the exception of historic northern East Prussia , which went to the USSR.
