Advice needed on this ad
Hello, I'm wondering if you guys could help me with this ad and what you think about these puppies. It seems it has so much random names and info that I'm not sure if it's legit (I guess that could be a good thing, I'm new at this).
The people posting the ad are an elderly couple that have been breeding for a while they say and sound very nice and trustworthy on the phone.
Here are two links for the same puppies:
black sable german shepherd pups - Ottawa Dogs & Puppies For Sale - Kijiji Ottawa Canada.
German Shepherd Puppies beauiful black sables - Ottawa Dogs & Puppies For Sale - Kijiji Ottawa Canada.
I've found the names they reference on the pedigree database website as well. I'm not too crazy about the colors, but I love German shepherds for the personality. What do you guys think about this specific one and what's being advertised?
Thanks so much!

I would ask about the hips/elbows ratings of the parents and check that out on the OVA site -not just take their word for it. I would also ask if the parentage was cleared for DM and check that out also. If they can't give those 2 items, I would pass and look elsewhere. i also would not accept any excuses that "we never had a problem with hd". I would also ask about any health guarantees. Also, if size is a concern for you, I did notice one of their dogs is 100 lbs.

I don't know how you are searching for a breeder, but classified ads aren't the way I'd go. Call the breeder and ask questions, but first look at the thread here on what to look for in a responsible breeder. Make a list before you contact them.
Things to look for in a 'Responsible' Breeder
And remember, all pups are cute, so don't be sold on a litter you fall in love with because they have that mesermizing puppy breath! Do research and don't jump into anything without thinking it all through.
