I bough a German Shepherd puppy & she is 9 weeks old. I seen the mommy and daddy & everything but everyone is saying I have been scammed. My opinion her ears look to small but the rest she looks like avpurebred GSD. Also, she weighs 10 pounds & from the floor to the top of her back is 13 inches tall. I DESPERATELY need help!!
I got her off of someone who has owned and breed GSD for many years, I have heard nothing but good things about this breeder. I asked around & they said his dogs were in tip top condition. I paid a couple hundred for her, my guesses are another male dog got to where the female dog was & mated with her. Obviously, thats the only conclusion I can come up with. Then again I think she may be different and her face changes more when she gets older & her ears will randomly shoots up. No I dont care if shes mixed but it makes me extremely mad if the breeder knew that he lied to me & told me she was purebred! Therefore, I also paid a large amount for her!
I believe you went to a BYB, and therefore it is very likely this pup isn't purebred. The dogs may have been healthy, but that doesn't make the person honest or a good breeder.
A puppy from a trustworthy breeder is generally $1200-4500 depending on the bloodlines and type.
Sorry, but your couple hundred was very likely spent on a mix. Regardless, she's adorable and should be just as loved!
A couple hundred dollars is not considered a "large amount" for a purebred GSD. Believe it or not, people will spend a couple THOUSAND dollars for a well-bred pup from a reputable breeder. So it's entirely possible your puppy could be crossbred; since you got her from a backyard breeder, anything could have happened. That said, she could indeed be purebred--it's hard to tell at this age. Her ears seem a bit small for a GSD, but otherwise, I don't see any obvious signs of another breed.
Whatever she is she is stinken CUTE!!! I do agree with the ears, it doesn't surprise me they are "up", (all my gsd's had their ears up some by 8 weeks, the rest by 10 weeks),,but they look kinda small for gsd ears..
She otherwise looks purebred to me, maybe she just has small ears??? Will be interesting to see how she turns out as she ages..
