transfer of ownership? Did you have to pay a service charge on the deposit you placed?

My dogs breeder chipped their pups at no charge....tattoo'd no charge....registration for akc was done before the pups left the breeder....again no charge.

the transfer of ownership was for the pink papers,, he came with a german microchip, but we had to pay for the american,, also had to pay to register him as a foreign dog with the akc

Yep, mine too, except for the microchip. I had my vet do that when my pup was 14 weeks.

I'm pretty sure all those "extra" charges were due to him being a foreigner... we found him by accident,, weren't looking specifically for one from Germany,, the lady that we got him from was only an hour away

A pedigree's and dog's value is all relative to who paid for it and what they want from that dog. Many people on this forum will tell you that you could've gotten something cheaper that would probably meet your goals. To tell you the truth, SchH3, IPO3, KKL1, is really not hard to find all throughout a pedigree if you find a good breeder and most of those pups in the United States are going for much less than what you paid.

The thing with pedigrees that I have learned is that unless you really really really know what you're looking for. You know what a certain dog produces and want that dog in the 3rd generation and another dog in the 2nd and another in the 4th ect. ect...you won't really get anything out of looking at a pedigree. When it comes to show lines...you're really paying for the prospect of winning shows and possibly sudding/breeding later on to make a little bit back (and the glory of telling your neighbor's your dog is from champion lines). It's an inflated price that is due to the market, not really the true value of a dog.

Value is very subjective. You have a great dog, from great parents, and you should be very happy with your purchase. You will find 100 people on this forum that will tell you that you could've gotten the same thing in America for cheaper/less. You paid a premium for a dog imported from Germany, maybe that comes with some benefits maybe it doesn't (again very subjective).

A good working line prospect can probably be imported from Germany for 1000-1500, which is what you would pay in America from any number of great breeders.
