I don't know why any breeder would not sell to him.... Because he doesn't want a mixed breed, 5 year old shelter dog? The breeders obviously aren't going to shove rescuing down his throat.

If he ever thought about rescuing, he sure forgot it by now, what with all of the rescuers going nuts on him.

I'm sure their owners don't care, since they already dumped them in a shelter.

I consider mine a rescue.... 2 and 1/2 and still only 65 pounds. Washed out coloration and no muscle..... Still love him to death but my love is not going to turn him into robin huerta's dogs.

No good breeders won't sell to him because what he is looking for, a barking aggressive dog, is not something most breeders are wanting to have in there lines. They also tend to be turned off by people who are rude.

Brokers are the best bet...obviously the OP wants an adult with some previous training. The wallet will do the talking in such a situation.
I doubt if Franklin or Grant will be rude.

so,you are saying, a GSD should not guard its territory?

Surely these dogs have fosters, new owners, or a rescue group/shelter staff that loves them.

This thread is not about rescues vs breeder dogs looking better than the other. Get back on track.now or warnings will start being issued.

IMO, these dogs are better looking than German showlines, but I wouldn't call the showlines shabby and say they don't look like GSDs just because they aren't my taste in GSDs.
There's an old saying, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" and IMHO that's basically what we're all saying albeit some are doing it with more finesse than others.

We now have a general idea what darrinjesus is looking for and I'm sure those who can help him will, and those of us who can't will go on to help others who like what we like.
