Weird experience so far and I guess a bit sad =/

We were planning to visit a Kennel tomorrow to see how the dogs are treated etc... The breeder emailed us asking us if we are still driving up because she has another family interested in a male puppy. So we nicely explained that we would love to come up to meet "the breeder" and see the kennel/dogs, but we are not ready to commit this week because we have one more place we would like to check, and if we miss-out on this puppy and are very pleased with the dogs, we would put our deposit on the next planned breeding.

We were pretty much told not to bother to drive up unless we are ready? I don't think that any responsible person impulse buys a puppy on the spot? I might be wrong, this is our first time buying from a breeder.

I did not think that 10 mins of someones time was so much to ask... For something that I will have for 12+ years.

I am a graphic designer, and I don't always get the client, but i never shut anyone out before talking to them and giving any advice I can even if they can't afford me for the job. This is why I am leaning towards a hobby breeder, it seams allot less of a "business".

your right, since they 'blew' you off, I would "write" them off.

Any breeder should be more than happy to have people come meet their dogs, see their kennels. Of course when it's convenient for the breeder, they do have lives, but telling you if you aren't going to buy NOW don't bother, well don't bother I'd write them off..

Did you ever contact Betty? Litter RIver Canine? She is in Florida, and may be able to suggest breeders if she has nothing available.

Thank you so much for your reply, makes me feel better. I don't know if some people go just to see the puppy, but I care about the parents. I want to see what kind of a beast my little fluff will grow into =)

I did talk to Betty, she is AMAZING, caring, helpful, and just awesome. She used a quote that was interesting. "I am a sucker for a sable". Well I am a total sucker for a black and red, just a dream dog in my mind, something I always wanted. I saw my first black and red 5 years ago and I had no idea what it was. I stopped the car and had to meet the owner and ask them what was attached to the leash. It's been 5 years and I still can't stop talking about that day. It is the same as my friend wanting a black pug over tan. I know there is so much more that goes into these dogs like intelligence, temperament and much more. There are so many posts on this forum about if it's wrong to want a certain color, but it's my first choice for now =)

I think anyone looking for a specific color can find the whole package if they take their time and do their homework

Color isn't tops on my list, but I do have my preferences and I don't think it's wrong to want a certain a color as long as color isn't the only reason you select a specific dog/pairing

I agree Diane, when I find the entire package in a dark sable it 's like heaven....... Take your time and there is no reason you can't find the perfect dog with the markings that make your heart sing.

I did spend a little time on the phone with the OP and hats off to them, they are doing their homework! Some lucky puppy is going to win the lottery when he goes home with them.....

You guys are more then welcome to come up and visit, you just have to agree to play with puppies. If you do I will show you some of the things I look for in pups and a few things you can do that will give you an indication of temperament.

How about Jagenstadt in Florida? I'm not sure if he has puppies or not but he has the black/red the OP desires.

El Divo and Von Lotta are both good kennels - I know both owners and dogs from them - I would also highly recommend ohertannen.com I have two dogs from Nadia and they are super in both looks and temperament. After getting a BH on one last year, I am working on a BH and then IPO titles on the other one. She has so much drive to go with her good looks, I am having a blast training her.

Hello,

If you are looking for Black and Red another West German Showline breeder/importer in Georgia is von den Oher Tannen.

Kennel owners are from Germany and are actively showing/titling their dogs.

They and Von Lotta are two WGSL breeders in GA that have a good reputation.

Here's a link: German Shepherds "von den Oher Tannen" - German Shepherd puppies for sale - German Shepherd Dog breeder - Imported German Shepherd Puppies for sale - Imported adult German Shepherds and puppies available
