    This is Cito, my pride and joy.  He's the first German Shepherd Dog I've ever owned (or should
    I say that has owned me).  I fell in love with him the minute he stepped off the plane.  Cito has
    been my introduction to the world of dog sports, he's my do everything, try anything dog.  Cito
    is a red sable GSD and his lines go back to West German working and show dogs as well as East
   German working dogs.   Click here to see his pedigree.

    Cito and I enjoy participating in a wide variety of activities together.  He introduced me to
    the sport of Schutzhund and though we never went beyond a B he taught me alot about the
    sport.  We are currently participating in obedience, tracking and agility. He has been a
    medalist in weight pulling through the IWPA; And has become one of my most cherished
    companions and friends.  We also enjoy backpacking, skijoring and just going for doggie
    walks.  Go to my pictures link to see some pictures of Cito doing his thing.

    In addition to introducing me to a variety of fun activities Cito has also introduced me to
    one of the common health problems found in the breed.  At a year of age he was diagnosed
    with a fragmented coronoid process (FCP) in both elbows.  He is currently not in any pain
    and enjoys the activities he participates in.  We keep a close eye on his condition and if he
    appears sore or stiff after participating in a particular activity we don't do that any more.

    Degner, DVM.
