The numbers listed above do
not represent every ISSR puppy born. Pets that were never upgraded to
breeding status are not listed in the RC and GTF databases.
Prior to 1990, 321 specially selected breeding quality Shiloh Shepherds were
incorporated as foundation stock. These were entered into the
TCCP database. Each of these dogs had 5-9 generations of LMX
(litter-mate x-ray) data on their ancestors, since most were born at
Konigin/Shiloh kennels or through Tina Barber's co-ownerships. These
old stud books/breeders records dating back to 1962 were carefully screened
for important genetic data that was needed to set a solid foundation for the
future welfare of this breed, while under development.
Please note: This also does
not include all puppies born after the failure of the FIC, which
registered some litters in the fall of 1990. During the
reorganizing between 1990-93 many litters were also born into the AKC
and later received individual ISSR papers as per the
qualifications and prior to the TCCP taking over all data processing for
the ISSR in 1993.
TCCP reports are based on
dogs that they have physically added into our ISSR Shiloh Shepherd database.
Dogs born during the transition with AKC or ISSR papers are documented
in the merged ISSR database used for RC calculations and GTF documentation.
