'New' Shepherding breed?

Post by Caryll on Tue Jul 08, 2014 11:53 am

Personally I think they're photoshopped - or at least I hope so!

Hmmm, if they aren't.... It's a cross.
Is there any info anywhere on their lines?
Looks like a GSD X German Rott or Mastiff to me.

IF they are genuine (& I doubt it) then there's definitely mastiff in them. However, the heaviness of the head doesn't go with the body shape/size. I think, and hope, it's photoshopped.

Oh God, them again. It's only popular in Asia, at the moment. Most of them are so heavy, their bodies just can't take the strain - they weren't bred for that sort of bulk. Although most of the pictures are Photoshopped, they're still a 'new breed' out there.

The dogs aren't quite as exaggerated as that, but they do love to accentuate bulk in their dogs through Photoshop. For instance:




This is what most of the Asian ones actually look like:



Still not nice. Look at the shape of their backs.  straight face

They're deformed. The spine is just atrocious, all the way through to the tail, and the joints are weak and misshapen.

Last 2 pics - the real ones - look even worse than the photoshopped ones. I hope their owners love them, because they are going to be very expensive in vet bills.

And take a guess at how much it would cost for one. Hint: They're the second most expensive dog in the world. There'd be no way in Hell you could get insurance for them, but I daresay the people who buy them would have enough to fork out.

It's aesthetic torture at its finest.

Disgusting!

Just for point of reference, how much are the pups?

They are not pretty - a complete catalogue of malformations in one unfortunate dog.

It's all very underhanded. They'll never put the price out in public; you have to contact them specifically. But anywhere from 10,000 to 20,000, depending on the dog.

It's sickening.

Whatever the price, who would pay a penny for a dog with so many deformities? Poor dogs.

No, I wouldn't pay it - but there are people out there with more money than sense!

From what very little information there is on the Internet, nobody seems to have heard of one of these dogs living over 6 years old.

German Shepherds just haven't been bred to carry around that much bulk; their joints can't take it.

Let's hope that this fad is as short-lived as the poor dogs are.

I still can't imagine why anyone would want a dog that looks like that.

Eeeeeuuuuwwwww....

I know you get King shepherd and Shiloh shepherd that are pretty big dogs but still nice to look at. Those Mace shepherds do look like photoshop gone wrong.

Then the second bunch of photo's: Those poor Sheps. They look really horrid!

One of those nasty fads out there, which very rarely make it out of a country. Thank God.
