The #1 Show Dog in America Is a Mess

The #1 show dog in America is "Lockenhaus' Rumor Has It V" which is pictured above, and below, walking on its metatarsus, with its hock almost touching the ground.

This dog won "herding" even though it cannot herd, and cannot even walk as a dog should.

A German shepherd should not walk on its metatarsals, and they did not used to.

Below is the gait of a wolf.

What have breeders done to wreck the German Shepherd?

Quite a lot. 

And what would it look like if we did the same thing to a horse?  

A lot like this:

Fantastic post.

As the owner of two German Shepherds, I agree with you 100%.

Awesome pony gif! Conformation is incredibly important. Have you checked out halter horses recently? AHA and AQHA have gone insane.
