Someone is bound to ask this. It may as well be me.

What does your dog bring to the table that makes it breed-worthy?

Does he hold any titles? Does he have health certificates?

I don't mean to offend, but someone will ask these questions if your post isn't ignored altogether.

The breed name is spelled German Shepherd Dog.

Do you know who bred your dog? Your dog's breeder may be able to advise you on how to get your dog tested, evaluated and prepared for breeding, or could provide you with a new puppy who is closely related to your current dog.

Welcome! Strap in for a bumpy ride. Tell us more about your dog and poke around on the forum to get acquainted with the culture here. MichaelE asked some great starting questions. The "Critique" forum is an excellent place to get feedback on your dog's conformation until you're able to make it to local shows. Check with your local kennel club to see what's available in your area if you haven't already!

And to reiterate, be super careful about misspelling your breed name. It does not make an outstanding first impression for someone who wants to allow their dog to procreate.

when someone usually asks this, my answer is, if you like Max so much, go back to the breeder he came from and get a puppy. So much easier to get ONE puppy vs trying to find a female to breed with which may be near impossible

Breeders who own breeding females pick their studs VERY carefully. Usually if someone owns a male that they consider breedworthy, they would have done everything that the flow chart lays out to prove that they have an outstanding dog in both conformation and temperament. Once the dog is out there winning titles and being seen in working venues and events, then they start to attract the attention of breeders who are looking for studs that will enhance their breeding program and complement the traits of the female, and usually it is the owner of the female that seeks out and contacts the stud owner for discussion of a possible breeding.

Many people would love to replicate their beloved dog in the form of a puppy, but when just breeding to make puppies to any female that is available, chances are slim that you will end up with what you want. It takes a lot of knowledge of bloodlines to make appropriate pairings.
So the best advice is to go back to your breeder and for another puppy - much better chance of getting a pup with the traits that you admire in your dog that way.

9 years old? Most likely sterile at this point. Very unlikely that he'd be successful in a natural mating situation. If you want to, you can get him collected, tested, and then find a female that would be willing to do envitro...by that time, you would've spent more money than it would've cost you to go out and get another dog.

Take this from an owner of a male...if your dog isn't titled, health certified, under the age of 6...there won't be many owners of good females that will want to use him as a stud. Titled and health certified studs are a dime a dozen, and if you don't stand out from the crowd for something special...no one really cares to breed to you anyways. Remember...the mother of the pup is 50% of the genes, and is probably more than 50% important as to how that puppy will turn out. You want the best possible combination of genetics, and also the best possible mother so that your puppy gets the best head start on being a well balanced dog.

Sorry...but you're probably a good 6 years too late to the breeding game. You might be able to find someone on the street that will use your boy as a stud, but there isn't a true breeder in their right mind that would use your dog. World class stud dogs get stud fees of about $1000...the price of a puppy is $1000+, not really worth it for a breeder to give you a puppy. They'd rather have the genetics of that world class dog because it will advertise better and sell much quicker.
