I would pass on this breeder honestly. I only see two dogs; male and female; and the dogs they're breeding dont appear to have any kind of titles on them. They claim their dogs are good for protection but I'm not seeing anything that says that's fact. I'd like to see, even showlines doing SOMETHING if the breeder claims they're good for this or that. They're piggy backing on the dogs dams and sires accomplishments. What are the accomplishments of the dogs actually being bred?
The following also bothers me because i'm seeing it as a messed up way of saying only showlines make good family members....
Show lines versus Working lines
It is very important for someone to understand the difference between show lines and working line German Shepherds because there is a vast difference. The working lines are exceptional at what they are bred to do. They have extremely high energy which makes them better for law enforcement when searching hours for a suspect or sniffing large areas for drugs. A working dog has to have something to do at all times or they will get bored. That kind of energy does not work well for a family and in a home atmosphere. We produce a line of German Shepherds that would be naturally protective, proven to be the best generation after generation and still have the calmness to be good with children. I found that in dogs with the West German Show Lines. To receive a top show rating of either a V or VA the German Shepherd Dog is required to be excellent in all fields. The hips have to be certified with either an "a" stamp or OFA, excellent conformation, obedience title (BH), pass an endurance test (AD), a courage test, bite work, and tracking which results in a Schutzhund title (SchH 1, 2 or 3). They cannot be distracted or show any aggression towards the judge, stud dogs or female dogs around them, but be ready to bite when asked too.
Our German Shepherd dogs are a big part of our lives, as you can see. Our dogs are not just breeding dogs to us they are part of our family. Our goal is to make your experience with your German Shepherd Dog as happy as ours. "
Considering there are SEVERAL members on this board alone and several more we don't even know that HAVE active working lines that are still family members, says a lot. I don't know. I wouldn't go to this breeder for my dog.
