Liesje I live in Grand Rapids and have a good friend near Kalamazoo that is doing German Shepherd rescue. She is getting TEN new dogs in this week! They will all be available for adoption shortly (pending any medical care they need and some behavior evaluation). If you're open to rescue, check them out!

If anybody knows I any reputable Places to find a German Shepherd, I would love to hear about them. I am more than willing to rescue a dog, Just need to find the right one. =)

FirstTimeGSD Concur. If GSD definitely not 7 weeks old, if 7 weeks old...(almost) definitely not GSD. I'd keep looking

BowWowMeow That dog is pure dog, definitely not bread. Sorry, couldn't resist that one.

Anyway, the head on that dog looks like a rottie but its body is tiny! Something is not right. I think I would pass and and go through a reputable rescue instead.

selzer Either that pup is not pure GSD, or that pup is more like 3.5 weeks or 4 weeks old, or maybe, a dwarf? Does anyone know what a dwarf GSD puppy looks like.

If this is a GSD pup that is 7 weeks old, then it is a true runt, and looks like it has either suffered from serious malnutrition or has something seriously wrong with it. I wouldn't give 18.50 for the pup. Not to the owner. I think you are being lied to, or they were lied to. Either way, you are probably better off paying a proper amount for a dog, because this one will probably cost you more than that.

Still, it is a puppy, and it is alive, and it needs a loving home.

chad2809 I think I will take your advice, and I am definitely not specifically looking for a puppy. If I could find a good rescue, I would jump on it in a heartbeat. Any more information on Rescues would be extremely appreciated. I am a very active person, so I'm not looking for a old dog, Rather a dog that can be outdoors with me and still wants to play catch and run.

onyx'girl I'd probably pass..just because the situation sounds odd.
Do you want a young pup, or is a rescue something you would think about? This rescue has several adopted lately, maybe put your family on the list for one that fits you.
If you want a purebred, then you should research lines and what fits best for you. There are several really good breeders in MI~ SL and WL's.
