Question Finding a Stud

Hi My Name is Terri,

Stella is our family female German Shepherd she is 3 years old, we would like to find a stud for her. I do not know how to go about it. How would I find a stud, how do I make sure that the stud is a good dog from a good family. I am very new to this.

If anyone can help, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you.

Terri

This is going to be very ugly.

I know how much you love Stella but no reputable repsonsible breeder is going to breed their stud to your girl.You have to prove she is breeding material. Just being a GSD won't cut it.There are already alot of GSDs in shelters.

There is whole lot to breeding than just having 2 dogs.

There are many respectable breeders on this board and alot of them will say the same thing, but in better terms.

There is so much to breeding, that it is not for everyone.

Just love Stella as she is.

Like I said I am new to this I don't want to keep breeding Stella, she is AKC registered, I just want her to have one litter of pups before we get her fixed. I was told that it is not healthy for females dogs not to have at least one litter of pups.

Being AKC registered has absolutely no bearing on her breeding quality and who ever told you that bit about female dogs needing a litter of puppies, has no idea what they were talking about.

I'm sure you love your dog, but unless she's titled and has proven that she's worth breeding, no reputable breeder will breed to her. I would highly suggest you just get her spayed.

Whoever told you that was incorrect. If we all believed that, then the world would be over run with dogs.
Look at the rescue section....too many already available. Do you have health clearances on Stella? Have you gotten any titles thru working with her to prove she is breedworthy(temperament and athletics)
AKC registration means very little in the big picture.
If you spend some time in the breeding section you will see where we are all coming from with the opinions you are getting.

Welcome to the site by the way! I hope you stick around and learn more about this wonderful breed!!

Being AKC registered is nothing. It just shows your dog is a purebred.

She needs to be proven, health tested, titled and much much more.Breeding takes alot of time, money, dedication and effort.

Whoever told that a female needs to have one litter of puppies before she is spayed is wrong.

My girl is spayed and did not have a litter of puppies and is perfectly healthy.

My friend who is a breeder always meets a stud in person before a breeding. She will travel all over, from Michigan to Texas or even to Germany just to meet the stud, not necessarily use him for breeding. What stud is picked really depends on the bitch and how the stud would compliment her pedigree and health, temperament, and conformation. If you do not know your own dog well enough to select a proper stud, then I would hold off on breeding until you have more experience or an experienced mentor.

At the bare minimum Stella needs to have her hips and elbows certified by OFA as being free of dysplasia. She may not appear to have any problems...but there's no way to tell without Xrays and you need to be sure that Stella will not pass on crippling health issues to her offspring.

Also, she doesn't need to have puppies. The female we have is not going to have puppies and it certainly won't impact her health.
