Hello, I found this forum/thread while doing a google search for Markus vom Status Quo. The dogs in the first post are NOT the same dog. The second dog is my dog, SG U-CH Alta-Tollhaus Bono SCHH1 AD T1 FO PA CL1-R UNJ U-CA TT HIT CGC OFA-Good/Normal. The first dog is my good friend's dog, VP Alta-Tollhaus Schumi SCHH1 HD/ED-A1/Normal. They are not related within three generations. Those photos were taken by our good friend at a Schutzhund trial in November 2011. My dog is not a cross, he is West German show line (so is Schumi). He is 3.5 years old and does Schutzhund, SDA, flyball, agility, lure coursing, and dock diving.
