I know of two breeders now pushing a curly coated GSD. I think they look awful, very unkept. Has anyone else seen this? What do you think of them?

If I remember some of my old old research there were some GSD's that had a curly coat and deemed fault and not to be bred under the SV system. There were also some wire hair coats.

I haven't seen any recent pictures, are there any you could share or a website link?

I stand corrected somewhat. I do have some pictures but they are on the text part of my phone so I don't know how to post them. I told this person I didn't like the look and found out that they are not breeding for this, but were proud of the pups that ended up with curly coats. I was glad to hear this was not the way this breeder was going. I also found out the other breeder was not going for this look either, kind of the same situation. So never mind.

And yes Val, I looked it up and it is a fault.

Looking at some of the photos (I'm not familiar with curly coats) they don't fit the look of a German Shepherd. But I admire GSDs for their typical characters and behaviors... not their looks smile
