Default Kelby German Shepherds

Has anyone heard of or have purchased a puppy from this breeder?? I am having a heck of a time choosing one and I am interested in these guys. I am looking for your classic big boned, red and black GSD with a dark mask. I would also like a shepherd with a medium drive as I intend on putting him through numerous classes and eventually title him, but I also want a dog who is laid back and isn't compulsive or hyper.



I have previously purchased a puppy without doing a whole lot of homework. Sadly I had to put my 2 year old boy, Frankie, down due to immune mediated thrombocytopenia. I cannot entirely blame the breeder but at the same time, we can not rule her out as the cause either. And unfortunately we purchased another puppy from her 6 months prior and her hips were junk by the time she was 10mos old and now needs to take dasuquin for the rest of her life. Because of this I am having a very hard time settling on a breeder- I need your help! Let me know if you guys recommend any other breeders as well! I appreciate it.

I have never heard of them or heard them mentioned.

I can't tell much from their site either?

How did you find them?

I saw their name mentioned in a thread and I'm just trying to do a little research. I have found a couple of breeders that I am interested in but I always have doubt and continue to look for a different breeder. I was looking to spend no more than $1,800 but the majority of the breeders that I'm looking into are around $2,500. I understand, though, that I may have to end up paying that much for a quality dog.

What are you looking for in a GSD?

I am looking for a smart, but laid back guy. I would like to put him through various training courses but I want him to be chill when we are just taking it easy. Medium drive, black and red with a dark mask, and big boned.

Are you looking to go into competition with your dog? If you're just looking for a laid back and chill dog, there are many GSD's in the shelter, but if you're willing to go the breeder route, depending on what the breeder breeds, show or working may effect the price.

I do recommend you do more research on other breeders that are known or have a good reputation because you do not want to buy from a byb or breeders that just breed for money.

I hope you find a perfect pup that will fit your needs!

Actually their is place that sells guaranteed full and pure bred GSD's for only 1,200, It's called Tiltonhaus German Shepherds and that is actually where I got all of mine and the dogs live long because they are elbow and hip certified and are DNA tested for various things. If you live far away, they also do free shipping.

I have a dog from Kelby that will be 7 in April. She is a very sweet and obedient girl. She is great with all my kids and the other dogs. She has always been a pretty mellow dog and did very well in her obedience classes when she was young. We have trusted her to have the run of the house when we have been gone since she was about 8 months old.

Kelly really cares about her dogs and what she produces. She is a very nice and honest person.

I definitely do want to go the breeder route because I want the health guarantee. It killed me when I had to put my 2 year old down and that may have been preventable if I did a little more research on a breeder before buying him. Thanks for help and suggestions guys!!

Kelby has a good health guarantee. It is on the website. I know she is due to have a couple litters soon.
