Secret development of the SS: Daufman's Shepherd
It was 1939, fascism began its march through Europe. There were concentration camps with their prisoners, who needed to be kept in fear, order and submission. The prisoners also had to be escorted. And what of the convoy without dogs? Was there a shepherd Daufman among the breeds of that time? Today, no such breed has been officially recorded. There is no it in the manuals on cynology, there is no standard, there are no nurseries. Does this mean that such dogs simply do not exist? To answer the question, it is necessary to study history.
At the beginning of the war, the SS leadership issues an order to select dogs with extremely high viciousness towards people. German cynologist Daufman took as a basis the German shepherd, which in principle is very logical. By the name of its creator, this "breed" and got its name. The nature of the dogs was particularly ferocious. They seemed to find pleasure in persecuting people, but at the same time they were cunning and cowardly. The documents of the cynological German laboratories, which are now stored in the US, claim that Daufman's sheepdog received these features from hyenas, whose blood was poured into the producers. In the formation of this species of sheepdogs, Maikong was also used. In addition, when training, methods were used that were particularly cruel, which allowed them to cultivate in dogs a hatred for people in particular. For example, instructors beat animals, changing into the robe of prisoners. After the victory over fascist Germany, Daufman's sheepdog was taken out of the country (figures figure - 42 000 individuals) and was used in breeding other breeds. This, after almost half a century, forced the specialists to regret their deed. A high level of aggression significantly spoiled the used breeds and limited the scope of their use.
Most modern cynologists around the world today are sure that Daufman's Shepherd is a myth. Shepherd was, Daufman was, but there was no new breed. Confirm their opinion and specific facts. For example, a hyena and a dog have completely different kareotypes. It's also impossible, and most importantly it's pointless, to crossbreed dogs with makong - a five-kilogram fox, living in South America. The animal is cunning, but it is not suitable for breeding kill dogs. In addition, the nature of the Maikong! The cowardly sheepdog can not fully bear guard duty. That is why individuals endowed with this quality are still being rejected from the breeding of most working breeds. Most of all, such a nature is inherent in domestic wandering dogs, which are capable of attacking only in packs or stealthily, but in no way suitable for the role of camp guard dogs. If you read the history of the German Shepherd breed, you can see that its number was not numerous. In the post-war period, the working qualities of dogs deteriorated significantly. Their exterior has become more impressive and "sofa", this is even a whole poem is in AK Tolstoy. So to say that the sheepdog Daufman spoiled the breed, it's not serious to speak. Thus, it is commonly believed that this is a myth, experiments with individual representatives, but not a separate breed - Daufman Shepherd. The photos of these dogs are not numerous, as are the information about them.
Although some developments of fascist laboratories still keep their secrets, but not in this case. Today, the number of German shepherds in our country is represented by very, very worthy individuals who participate in international exhibitions. Active work is also being done to improve the livestock population. Wishing to acquire a reliable security guard, visit the shepherd nursery, which has a good reputation. There you will definitely choose a puppy with a steady psyche and all the qualities inherent in this breed.
