White Swiss Shepherd Dog (WSSD,347)

As the responsible country for the breed standard White Swiss Shepherd Dog(WSSD, standard 347), the SKG informs us of their concern regarding the current situation as far as the breeding of this breed and the issuing of pedigrees by some FCI member countries are concerned. We share their concern and observe that even after the recognition of the White Swiss Shepherd Dog(WSSD standard 347) on 01.01.2003(date of the official recognition), matings with non-purebred subjects(3 generations) from this breed continue to take place or that white German Shepherd Dogs with one or more coloured ancestors are re-registered as WSSD. We remind all FCI member organizations and contract partners that they have to comply with the following:

1. White Swiss Shepherd Dogs (347) CANNOT be mated with white German Shepherd Dogs (GSD, standard 166) since they are two distinct breeds with different breed standards. In order to guarantee that both breeds are correctly separated, it is also important to respect what follows:

2 .WSSD can not be entered in the studbooks of this very breed if a part or all their ancestors (3 generations) were still registered, after 01.01.2003, as white German Shepherd Dogs


3. It is not allowed to re-register as a WSSD (347) a dog which was registered as a white German Shepherd Dog (166) after 01.01.2003

3. An accidental white German Shepherd Dogs (white puppy in a litter of German Shepherd Dogs)with one or more coloured ancestors cannot be used for breeding as a WSSD nor can it be re-registered as a WSSD.
