A one year old German shepherd dog.

This is purebreed pedigree German Shepherd (imp. Russia). Because of disqualifying fault (long hair) he cannot be used in breeding or succeed in official show rings. But he is excellent in obedience training and has very strong but good nature.

In Holland it's not a fault, but accepted for a different type German Shepherd. It's called old type German Shepherd or in German: Alt Deutsche Schafferhund.
It's a shame you can not use him in breeding, he's a beauty!

The long coat is not a fault for a working dog. He is beautiful.

You're welcome.
Actually, they have recently changed AKC and German show ring rules. Long haired GSDs are acceptable, as long as your male is intact and trained he can compete. We compete with my Long haired female shepherd and get many interesting questions and looks but no one gives us a fault for her long hair.

It depends where you live, or what shows you attend to.
