Hi Skylar, it's Julia here. I'm the person that manages the Apollo_the_WSS on Instagram for my boy ;-) I just bought the previous three issues of your White Shepherd World magazine. I'm looking forward to their arrival. When we got Apollo in June 2013 at eight weeks old from Surefire Shepherds (his pregnant mother was imported from France; she was originally from the Czech Republic) we were one of the few to have this breed in the US. The breed certainly seems to have taken off these past 8 1/2 years. Apollo and his five siblings were registered as White Swiss Shepherds with the FCI via Puerto Rico, and also with the United Kennel Club as White Shepherds. I'm curious if many WSS breeders in the US are registering their litters with the FCI or just the UKC? Also, do you know if we are any closer to a resolution on the White Swiss Shepherd vs the White Shepherd debate that has been holding up AKC formal recognition of the WSS breed?
