My dog was also a Uran progeny.  He was very prolific.

Karl fuller has passed and his kennel is gone. His U litter pops up in many pedigrees of working lines and showlines. It’s also found in Cion’s pedigree.

There is an interesting statement. Not one I agree with. A dog is capable of being social and turning on aggression.

That's a very old kennel name. Are they still around?

I don't believe Kirschental is still breeding. I think the owner passed.

That is true. They dismantled the kennel. Someone tried to find another kennel carrying on the lines and couldn’t.  They are old sheep herding stock.  It’s sad that German Shepherds don’t herd sheep anymore.

Did you get your GSD from Wynn Strickland?  How far back are the Uran bloodlines.   Mine was a granddaughter.

My trainer never taught that and she authored the book Expert Dog Training and still holds the record posthumously for the most titles and developed the first agility course which has since been lowered because most people can't train their dogs to that level.  She also wrote The German Shepherd Today.  She was friends with Von Stephanitz daughter and the owner of Kirschental Kennels where she got a lot of her breeding dogs.  She had some awesome dogs.  Wynthea Kennels was the top name in German Shepherds and known around the world.
