I am still learning so much about the breed as Harley grows. But I have noticed a general trend. Every time I meet a large doberman, GSD, or boxer that seems HUGE to me, the owner always tells me they are from European lines.
So is that true? Is the standard in Europe larger (are they allowed to be taller and heavier across the pond)? I already know they have different rules about docking and cropping.
Is there one standard across all the European contries or is it based on each country?
And if that is the standard over there and we have a standard in the US, are they really the same breed?
I know that is a lot of questions, but I was just wondering....
