This is a free and friendly Club for owners of white German Shepherds and White Swiss Shepherds in Australia and New Zealand. Check out the Newsletters page for a hearty laugh.
Some white German Shepherd dog clubs call their dogs White Swiss Shepherds but the two breeds are different according to the FCI, which sets international standards for all breeds.. The Australian National Kennel Council (A.N.K.C.) recognises (since 2008) White Swiss Shepherds as a new breed, and imported dogs, or dogs bred from imports and registered in Australia with the A.N.K.C can be shown at A.N.K.C dog shows. The white German Shepherds cannot be shown at A.N.K.C shows. People who for years said that they championed the cause of the white German Shepherd are being very quick to jump on the White Swiss Shepherd bandwagon and change their dogs identities, and this is causing puppy buyers to be misled into thinking their white German Shepherds are genuine White Swiss Shepherds. If puppy sellers tell you their pups are White Swiss Shepherds but don't give you an A.N.K.C pedigree (which isn't the same as a 'Club pedigree') you have not bought a White Swiss Shepherd pup.
This Club will welcome owners of white German Shepherd Dogs who don't have a problem with calling their dogs as such, as well as owners of genuine, pedigreed White Swiss Shepherd dogs.
