Hello All - Hope everyone is having a good weekend.
I am finally in a time/place in my life where I can devote enough time and resources to a new family member, and I have always been interested in GSD's.
I am interested in obedience classes, training, and having the GSD be my running companion. I am looking for a new family member, not necessarily a 'show dog', so I am struggling with the differences in breeders and pricing.
Do you mind looking at the following ad and letting me know your thoughts? Around KY, I have seen pricing range from 800-1200 dollars, and most recently this ad surfaced. I called the number and spoke with the breeder, who stated AKC papers, 1 year general health, and 5 year hip health guarantee. It's the second liter of the female, who is 3 years old. I'll be honest, I have learned quite a bit from this site, but was hoping for some insight.
AKC German Shepherd Puppies Louisville | German Shepherd Puppy For Sale in Louisville KY | 3669585051 | Dogs on Oodle Marketplace
What should I be asking the breeder?
Again, pardon my ignorance, but any help is appreciated.
