I wrote the original Don't Fall 4 the Fraud article in January 2006. Events were moving so quickly that I had to add updates in February 2006, July 2006, October 2006 and December 2006! Wow! When you have the extra time, you should study my reports. However, for now, I would like to share a short update and sliver synopsis for those that would like an honest overview.
Read the facts listed below!
Please take a look at the recent outcrosses that have/are being used; most are listed below, broken down into 4 groups, however, new ones seem to being added daily.

B. AKC "Larger" GSD's with some "Shiloh" blood...somewhere...
Alice Fisher did have some Shiloh progeny back in the late 80's but refused to relinquish her AKC papers so she just continued to do "her own thing" producing $400 pet quality pups within the AKC. Her daughter did not join her program until much later, and since then they have been using the "Selah" name, despite the fact that all of her former "Shiloh" stock is being outcrossed to other GSD's or inbred on Sabrina in order to produce large dogs, even thought there could potentially be serious health risks (like SAS, VT, etc.) resulting from such a practice!
Please take a look at this pedigree Royal Aire is also breeding these same dogs, but the pups are honestly evaluated and sold as "oversized" GSD's with full AKC registrations! If you would like to purchase a dog like this, from an honest breeder, may I suggest that you contact one of these.
You may notice the "Shiloh" kennel prefix on some of these dogs. However, if you examine the pedigrees, you will be clearly able to see that they did not come from the real Shiloh Shepherd Kennel! It's just another ploy they are using to defraud and confuse the consumer!
Be sure to view some Real Shiloh Shepherd Pedigrees!
All REAL Shiloh Shepherds are bred as per the very strict ISSR rules and meticulous Litter Mate X-Ray (LMX) data is maintained on all carefully selected breeding stock.
Don't let the frauds con you into paying thousands of dollars for one of these dogs!! They are NOT 'shiloh shepherds' -- If you do nothing else, be sure to read Protecting Breed Development!
D. Dangerous Dogs (Czech Shepherd import)
Whatever you do, never fall for one of these mixes! Czech dogs are wonderful Schutzhund competitors and police dogs, but they do not belong as pets with our modern suburban households, whose owners usually are inexperienced as attack dog trainers). If you are looking for a REAL Czech competition/protection dog, then please contact Alpine K-9. Don't settle for progeny out of unproven rejects that could endanger your family! This website gives information about Czech Shepherds: History of the Czechoslovakian frontier-police dogs.
