8 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 7 Indiana vom Wildsteiger Land

9 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 8 Is the Story of...

10 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 9 Canine Hip Dysplasia

11 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 10 Indiana was born July 7th 2003

12 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 11 A very promising young pup

13 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 12 Indiana was born in a litter of 7 pups (4,3). His parents were: Nanda vom Wildsteiger Land and Xenos vom Wildsteiger Land

17 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 16 His littermates were: Ice, Inko & Isaak (males) Iduna, Idda & Ingana (females)

18 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 17 Littermates playing...

19 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 18 Littermates feeding...

20 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 19 Littermates napping.

21 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 20 Indiana was tattooed and left for Belgium August 29th

22 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 21 His arrival had been anticipated anxiously...

23 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 22 With a playful beginning, full of joy and fun to build up trust,

24 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 23 training and socializing started at the earliest of ages.

25 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 24 This leash is fun!

26 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 25 Lets go for a walk!

27 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 26 Stay!

28 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 27 First visits to the training field,

29 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 28 with so much to see,

30 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 29 so much to try out,

31 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 30 a lot of toys,

32 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 31 to chew and bite on,

33 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 32 a lot of strange creatures,

34 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 33 a whole world to discover,

35 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 34 And a lot of rest...

36 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 35 And rest...

37 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 36 And rest...

38 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 37 And rest, to digest all those new experiences.

39 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 38 The ears grow bigger…

40 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 39 And bigger still!

41 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 40 Trips to the seaside,

42 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 41 Trips to the lake,

43 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 42 And many trips to the park.

44 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 43 Growing up slowly...

45 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 44 But steady!

46 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 45 Fall 2003

47 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 46 Indiana was introduced in the local GSD- breeding club of KG08 Groeninghe Waregem Twice a week, Indy and his owners were trained to become knowledgeable handlers.

48 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 47 Indiana has been spotted in city centers and train stations, getting used to crowds, traffic, and a lot of noises! And he enjoyed tracking in the fields.

49 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 48 An Indian-a Summer...

50 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 49

51 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 50 Indiana was kept in perfect condition, dewormed regularly, got all of his shots and was spoiled rotten.

52 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 51 It could of course not be prevented, that he also got sick once in a while. In November he suffered from a never stopping diarrhoea, which led us to the vet, later to the Pets Clinic, he was almost completely dehydrated.

53 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 52 Thanks to the professionalism of the entire crew of the Pets Clinic of the Ghent University in Merelbeke, Indiana recovered very well, but was diagnosed with Endocrine Pancreas Insufficiency (EPI). He was immediately put on a diet!

54 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 53 Winter 2003/2004

55 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 54 The first winter comes around...

56 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 55 Snow is falling...

57 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 56 Indiana just loves it!

58 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 57 What a great time!

59 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 58 Fooling around in the snow...

60 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 59

61 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 60

62 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 61

63 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 62 Then comes the Springtime...

64 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 63 Indiana achieves VV1 twice (vielversprechend = very promising), in the Puppyclass of International Dogshows. (1 non-SV-Judge, 1 SV-Judge: John Thys)

65 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 64 Indiana on WUSV- Selection poster

66 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 65 April 3rd 2004, at a Judgement Day for GSDs, Indiana receives an excellent written report by SV- Judge Roland Dierendonck.

67 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 66 And then, the first Zuchtschau

68 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 67 And another… ( Pinkstertrofee SG5 SV-Judge H.P. Fetten)

69 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 68 And finally, the Belgian Siegerschau! (SV-Judge L. Schweikert)

70 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 69 SG5 Belgische Siegerschau 2004, Month of August (13 months of age)

71 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 70 Lisa and I were very pleased with the results of our buddy, we continued our training for the BH and started Schutzdienst.

72 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 71 In the meantime Indiana had already celebrated his first birthday, so we needed to have his hips checked!

73 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 72 September 7th 2004, aged 14 months, Indiana was x-rayed. The outcome was a huge schock! Indianas left hip looked like a Greek ruine. The vets suggested the final shot!

74 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 73 I was completely devastated! Lisa needed to be consulted, being a co-owner. I took Indiana back home.

75 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 74 Unilateral Hip Dysplasia

76 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 75 The left hip looks very bad indeed. We informed the breeder, got no reaction! Through the Internet we were being informed about Indianas littermate Ice. He seemed to be affected by Hip Dysplasia also, was diagnosed HD-5, (HD-E) = severe Hip Dysplasia.

77 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 76 Indianas brother Ice He also was diagnosed with severe HD Ice vom Wildsteiger Land

78 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 77 Meanwhile Indiana was immediately banned from dogsport (including Schutzdienst) and heavy duty. His x-rays were sent to different internationally renowned experts. The Belgian HD/ED-Commission diagnosed: HD-D = HD-4. Other experts confirmed this result.

79 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 78 FCI-Diagnosis: HD-D

80 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide – 1 st radiographs Aged 14 months – first x-rays Dr. Koen Vandendriessche Dierenkliniek Causus, Westkerkestraat 20, B-8460 Oudenburg Radiographs were sent to the breeder. They were never returned! Medical Follow-up:

81 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 80 The breeder criticized the quality of the images?! And proposed to x-ray again at his own Vets!? (WHY?) Dr. Vandendriessche was appalled and raised objections in writing to the breeder. Complete DENIAL!!

82 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide – 2 nd radiographs Aged: 16 months – new x-rays were needed for HD/ED-Commission Dr. F. Coopman / Dr. H. Van Bree Universiteit Gent – Faculteit Dierengeneeskunde Arthrosis unmistakably increased, X-rays were submitted to the HD/ED- Commission: Findings: HD-D = HD-4 = a4 Diagnosis. Medical Follow-up:

83 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 82 Department of Medical Imaging (Veterinary Faculty Ghent University) sent the images to different colleagues. Among others to: 1. ECVDI = European College of Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging, University of Giessen, Dr. Bernd Tellhelm, Member of the Scientific Council of the SV. 2. ECVS = European College of Veterinary Surgeons, Vetsuisse Faculty University in Zürich, Prof. Mark Flückiger, Member of the Scientific Council of the SV. Some recommended HD-E (HD-5), overall result HD-D (HD-4).

84 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 83 WUFF-Magazine 12/06-01/07: Indianas last Winter: Anatomy of a Tragedy Indiana in the Press: Part 1

85 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 84 The Indiana Trial The breeder kept waving all responsability, although he had promised a show quality pup, fit for breeding! The story of how and why I went to court was published by Dr. Hans Mosser in the german language dogmagazine: WUFF

86 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 85 Indy in WUFF-Magazine 02/07: The Trial Indiana in the Press: Part 2

87 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 86 What about Indy? In order to evaluate Indianas condition, he was regularly checked. Although obviously handicapped, he kept his spirits up. We tried to make the best of his life.

88 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide – 3 rd radiographs Aged: 26 months – Status control Follow-up x-rays by Dr. Coopman University of Ghent Arthrosis had increased further. Medical Follow-up:

89 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide – 4 th radiographs Aged: 34 months – Status control Final radiographs Dr. Coopman University of Ghent Arthrosis increased even more, Indiana was put to sleep after the examination. Medical Follow-up:

90 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide Autopsy Laboratorium Pathologie van de Huisdieren Prof. Dr. R. Ducatelle, University of Ghent Findings: please see report of post-mortem examination. Medical Follow-up:

91 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 90 No more dogsport, no more Schutzdienst No inline-skating, no bike rides No extensive walks, no more trips to seaside or lake, no more tracking No more preparations for Zuchtschau, we even skipped his BH Instead, Indiana was treated like a disabled After the first diagnosis Indiana was immediately banned from heavy duty

92 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 91 From now on, Indiana takes it easy! Flashback to first diagnose

93 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 92 No more running or jumping!

94 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 93 At the club, Indiana is now a spectator, he stays at the side!

95 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 94 While daddy risks his life!

96 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 95 gives me some time to study the magnitude of Canine HD. The SV promotes a healthy German Shepherd Dog. In the SV-Genetics Database the Kennel Club documents 57,24% of all x-rayed GSDs have perfect hips, only 4,90% would be dysplastic!? No more dogsport for Indy and me...

97 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 96 Lets have a look at SV-charts! X-rayed pop.: 33,23% = > HD-1: 57,24% & HD-4+5: 4,90%!?

98 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 97 I have taken the liberty of taking into account some of the diagnoses that never find their way into the database. All Insiders know that many results are held back, and many pups are prescreened. For this simulation, a correction of the amount of x- rayed dogs of merely 10% was made, but already the result leaves one speechless. Less than half of the GSDs would give proof of anatomically perfect and sound hips. Now, whats the REAL picture?

99 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 98 Most people have no idea whatsoever, how many GSDs are affected by Hip Dysplasia. I am glad to be able to offer some graphics on the subject to all whom it may concern.

100 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 99 Correction! / Simulation: Simulation X-rayed pop.: 43,23% = > HD-1: 44,01% & HD-4+5: 26,90%!!

101 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 100 Less than half of the GSDs have sound hips! The simulation shows that with a tiny correction, the amount of a1 (HD-1) results drops from 57% to merely 44%! The amount of severely dysplastic dogs (HD-4 & HD-5) increases from 4,90% to an alarming 26,90%!!

102 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 101 So DO be careful when numbers are presented to document the phenomenon of Hip Dysplasia. They might NOT be accurate. Withheld x-rays need to be taken into account when searching for "the whole picture". A mere 10% of non- registered bad diagnoses was used in the simulation to have an idea of Hip Dysplasias REAL frequency. I hope GSD-enthusiasts and -breeders will do all that is in their power to improve the situation.

103 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide : No changes!! Figures indicate no major improvement since 1986!!

104 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 103 Further information about the real magnitude of Canine Hip Dysplasia and other studies and statistics can be found on our website:

105 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 104 In the meantime, Indy had a quiet life, nevertheless he seemed to become less and less mobile by the day.

106 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 105 An operation would carry many risks. We did not want Indy to suffer maybe even more than he already had. Together, Lisa and I made the final decision to have him put to sleep.

107 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 106 In the last weeks of his life, all of his friends came to say their Goodbyes...

108 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 107 All members of my family, and the people Indy met during his daily walks...

109 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 108 Not to mention the ones who were nuts about him! Like Yentl...

110 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 109 And… Claudia!

111 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 110 Finally, I brought Indy to the University of Ghent for an ultimate evaluation after which we put him to sleep. An In Memoriam was put on our website:

112 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 111 Revelation of the post-mortem Revelation of the post-mortem In order to evaluate if "the final decision" was indeed the right one, a post-mortem examination took place. We found our personal impressions of his pain (of which we had no proof) confirmed by the images of the autopsy. As the expert said: The circular ligaments inside the hip bowl were destroyed (partially torn apart) and the cartilage was completely battered.

113 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 112 It was a great relief reading the medical confirmation that indeed this hip was ruined to a degree that euthanasia was the only way for us to immediately stop his pain. (We found out later that Indianas brother Ice had already been put to sleep, after many months of severe pain.)

114 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 113 I quote an expert: "That is a severely dysplastic femur head and socket. It looks like it could easily dislocate because the socket is so open and the femur head is deformed and arthritic from what I can see. One side looks pretty good, and even though the positioning is not ideal, still the dysplastic hip joint is very evident...

115 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 114 … They would have to replace the socket and femur head to give Indiana any kind of painfree life. That surgery is very painful and requires a long time for recuperation which is difficult for a large breed dog to remain quiet enough physically for it to heal....

116 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 115 … Often a very powerful hindquarter musculature and ligamentation will hold the leg in position, but with that socket, sooner or later, I would think, one false step by that dog and it could dislocate and the pain would be excruciating!! I think Jantie did the right thing, personally, from what I can see of the x-ray, this dog was in serious trouble, with no good outlook for the future. End of quote.

117 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 116 Lisa and I are now at rest, Indiana will not have to suffer anymore. We believe we took the right decision. Now we need to see to it, that less GSDs must suffer like he did. We hope you will help us in this endeavour.

118 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 117 Epilogue This is certainly not a unique story. Many tens of thousands of dogs are affected by CHD every year. I call upon all scientific personnel and dog fans to strive for a healthier GSD. Calling upon the German Kennel Club SV has proved to be unsuccessful. The association and its breeders wave all responsibility when it comes to HD and disregard the latest scientific findings.

119 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 118 Breeding regulations need to be adjusted, so that less dogs must suffer. Im convinced public awareness will increase the pressure on the SV and the breeders, and you can help to spread the word. Lisa and I hope you will try and do just that. The lives of Ice and Indiana should not have been in vain. May God bless you and all GSDs!

120 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 119 This presentation was made as a small contribution to the breed, in order to change something leading to a healthier GSD. Ut aliquid fiat! as the Romans say. So that something changes! Damit etwas geschehe!

121 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 120 Rest in Peace now Indiana! We love you!

122 © 2003 By Default! A Free sample background from Slide 121 Thank you for your time. I hope you will learn from this experience.
