I have found 3 males so far 2 in the states and one in Europe all in the 9 yr range.... 1 of those 3 in the states has been reported deceased (not by the owner)
Is anyone aware of frozen semen or males currently alive with a tested viable load?
These topics can sometimes get off topic so please limit the discussion to first hand knowledge of Rasputin or his progeny.
I am also interested in hearing first hand perspectives of and about Rasputin

i don't know his temperament but from his physical appearance he definitely wasn't really exemplary representative of east breeding.
way too flat and weak hips and from pix of 1-st generation looks like this deficiency have been inherited by his progeny.

Good hips and elbows and also comes from the Grafental "E" Litter as well :-)
Nice Linebreeding on Tino
Wasn't Dmitry partnered with Alex @ Stasi?

with such "good hip" your breeding will produce nothing but sofa surfers. that's common issue of show breeding. good hip means not only correct joins but also muscular mass wrapped around it, which provides strength in run and jump.
hip in picture above definately weak to carry such masive front part of that dog. leave alone that even from point of aesthetic this dog looks quite deformed in his structural proportions.
if you truly care to produce physicaly decent dogs, look for dogs with structure like this ones:

I don't think they were partners, they may have done some business together. I do recall there was one guy who had a lot of trouble with a dog from Stasi and somehow Dmitri was involved.
