Default World class GSD von gunbil

Hey guys anyone got a puppy from this breeder ? World Class German Shepherd Breeders - Puppies for Sale They are so beautiful. A friend of mine considering to get one from them. Excellent elbow and hip parents on some litter and very nice red color/ I know i cant afford the price its way too high for me. Also the 5 years health guarantee sounds nice, any opinion is much appreciated thanks.

I know 'nothing' of the breeder, but I am always turned off when it reads "world class" or something of that nature..

The website screams "infomercial" and you can buy puppies on line which are major turn offs (and the buying of puppies online is a huge red flag).

That being said, their dogs are titled and health tested. They ship their dogs off to be trained and titled by someone else, which is also a turn-off, but at least the minimums are there. I'm curious if anyone has any first-hand experience with them.

I purchased a puppy from them in 2013 and am very happy with my dog. I grew up with shepherds but this is the first one I'm training on my own. Because of this I felt a showline dog would be more appropriate for my experience level. He is smart, very trainable, and most of all very stable. This breeder is located about 25 miles from where I live and so I was able to visit regularly and still do. While the web-site is quite commercial and may turn some people off, the owners are very good people. They have another kennel in Germany which is where all the dogs are titled. Depending on your wants/needs in the way of a puppy, I would not hesitate to recommend buying a dog from this breeder.

I don't personally know of any reputable breeders who sell their puppies online... I want a breeder who screens potential buyers as carefully as potential buyers should be screening breeders. Breeders should be talking to owners about what they're looking for, what their lifestyle is like, etc to see if they're a good match and to match an appropriate puppy. These aren't commodities to be added to an online shopping cart.

Lori- that's great to hear! How much time did they spend getting to know you before you purchased? Is the "BUY NOW!" just an unfortunate thing on the website? Is there a reason they don't title their dogs in the US?

They have a six month old that's listed as "fully trained". The dog is no where near mentally mature enough to be fully trained and for 15k, I'll pass.
