I think I found my breeder
2 Attachment(s)
I have decided im going to get a pup from Riggs Shepherds in oklahoma. She is a small hobbies breeder with nice looking dogs. The pups will be around kids, horses, cats, and various other critters. A much better start than what my Bella had before I got her so im h opeing for a more stable pup that will mature in to a stable friendly adult. This will be the parents the mom a akc sable named billy and a german import blanket back named bogart. And this is Bogarts daddy POLICE PATROL DOG Thor Vom Rochford so im h opeing after the first of the year to bring home a male who I will name Simba. The house is too empty with out a shepherd. What do yall think is this a good choice for a pet only breeder?

I am no good at looking at most pedigrees but Bogey's dad looks like it has some good ancestry.

However, it sounds like you have put a lot of effort and research into your decision....I'm sure the pup will have a great life as it adds to yours.

I have ive been talking to her since late march. She seems to love her dogs and her kids. And I dont have thos uh oh feelings about her like I did the people I got Bella from. If they offered me another pup for free I'd say no even if it was a full or half sibling to Bella. I miss her but she had server aggression problems and had to be managed carefully. I want a pup that can be around our other dogs and in-laws without worry.

From what I understand talking to the Bogarts owner the female he will be bred with wont come in heat till December. And it will be his first breeding im super excited I hope the breeding goes well and the best of mom and dad come out in the pups. Im hopeing for a very dark sable, a black, no color or a blanket back like the dad. ♥♥♥♥

From your sig line, you seem to have a large number of small dogs...none marked 'at the bridge', so it appears you have 10+ small dogs???? You had a GSD with aggression problems before that you had to keep separate if I am interpreting your posts right? Personally, I would not recommend ANY working line male, especially one bred by someone specializing in "pets", to a household where a pack of small dogs are present...To buy a pup from heavy duty working lines is a bit too high risk don't even know what the mother line of the dog will be and how much more prey drive she will bring to the table....The sire is a mix of DDR with Belgian, Czech and West German lines...

the sire will be only a year old next week, if they breed him in december, he isn't even two yet? What health testing has or will be done on the parents of the future puppy?

do agree with this "I would not recommend ANY working line male, especially one bred by someone specializing in "pets", "

I went to a Riggs in Oklahoma site and saw a lot of white gsd. Is this the breeder that will be having the Bogart litter?

A person specializing in pet is not familiarized with the working lines . You have got to "know" dogs beyond being able to say they are sweet
This is what was on that site "very sweet personality and even with his large size, he is slightly timid."
In my opinion that dog should not be breeding. That is their stud!?

Bogart --- did you have a look at the pedigree. This is why I entered into discussing the breeder.

Either there is an error on the pedigree data base , or , this is a very tight inbreeding.

Bogarts sire Thor is son of Thornton X Heidi .

Bogarts mother is Sadie who is a daughter of Princess Nadja a "sister" of Thor (Bogarts sire) .

Sadies sire is a daughter of Nadja Rochford (Terry x Tess) who is a "sister" to Thornton (Terry x Tess)

The only dog not related is Visum .

Find it curious that Thor is reported to be Kkl 1 . I was of the understanding that the dog had to have a schutzhund title. Please inform me on that issue .

"drug trained" does not mean certified .

I doubt that the Riggs site that you found is the breeder that the OP is considering. It looks as if that site hasn't been updated in approx. 4 years.
