you should easily be able to find a nice GSD pup for 2000.

shop around, check the complaint sites on the internet, ask for references, see hip/elbow certifications, ask to see paperwork on the sire and dam......

Wow, that's terrible ! So much for a puppy... I'm glad I live here in UK otherwise I'd never have a puppy!

You should be able to find a companion pup for around $2000, $5000 is ridiculous. I'd stay away from that breeder; good breeders don't push you one way or another, they try to find the right pup for YOU. How far are you willing to drive, or would you consider having a pup shipped if it's within your budget?

Who here on the forum is in or near MN?

A good working line pup I found was $1200-$1500. Please do NOT go by titles alone!! You can breed 2 titled parents and come up with all kinds of issues if the breeder doesn't know what they're doing! I second recommendations from people here. You want to talk to people who have dogs from that breeder. Don't rush this. You can end up with a head ache beyond belief with temperament and health problems if you do! A good breeder won't push you for anything. In fact, you'll have to 'pass' their interview with you to get one. You'll need to tell the breeder what your plans are for the pup and what you're looking for. Then they can get you a lower drive dog that you'll be happy with. However, these are not couch potato dogs. They require time, training, exercise, mental stimulation, etc. If your reason for getting a GSD is the way they look or something, then I'd highly recommend you do some reading here first. They are a GREAT breed of dog, but not for everyone.

We are located in Southeastern MN (Winona). Thank you all for the information regarding the puppy pricing. I have gotten a few suggestions for breeders in and around our area so I'll start doing some research with them as well.

If you lived closer, I could help you out.
Do you ever get over to New England?
