Default Breeding my German Shepherd

Okay I'm breeding my German Shepherd, she is currently still a puppy but she is planned to become a mother with a cream and tan Sire, which is 7 weeks old. I don't know what the out come of the looks of the puppies will be, and I hope for long hair. The father of the female is about long hair but still alot long than the mothers- very short and thin. Any help here?

There is way more to planning litters than color/coat. What would make the puppies that you have now breedworthy? Do you have pedigree information on either one of them?
"Should I breed my dog?" Flowchart and many other links in the breeding forum are worth taking the time to read.

In all seriousness though, OP you are very unlikely to find much if any support on this board for a breeding of dogs that untried based on their coat collar and length alone.

Have you talked with your puppy's breeder? What is his/her opinion of this match? Have they explained all the steps that you need to take with this pup if you want a quality breeding?

I hope you aren't in a hurry. The boy should be about 2 years old or older, so you have plenty of time to learn a lot about the whole process, about bloodlines, and the standard, about genetics and how the colors/coats actually work -- though these are the last things that should be considered in a breeding.

There is a lot to take into consideration, like finding the best homes for your pups, and what you can do now to give them the best chance, sort of stack the deck in their favor so to speak when it comes to finding good homes.

You will hear a lot of crap on these threads about who should breed and why you should breed dogs or not breed dogs. I am only going to say that it can break your heart, when you realize through your action or inaction you failed to keep a puppy alive, or when you lose a bitch that you love because something went wrong and you did not know the signs, because your vet said something and you did not know enough to walk out, discard their advice and rush the dog/pups to a specialist.

So stick around in the forum and read everything, specifically the threads on breeding. Try to get past snarky comments and attitudes, and be open-minded rather than defensive. And hopefully, by the time your puppy is old enough, you will be in a better place to make the best choices for your dogs.
