Catu I'd say there are far more working-line GSDs in Colombia than in Chile. Specially because of the reasons you already commented the market is bigger, and Colombia has active Schutzhund and Ring clubs. The first time I presented Diabla in SchH was under a Colombian judge... you shouldn't have problems looking for one, though if you need extra contacts I have many dog-people friends in Colombia, specially from the SAR world, but they know good breeders, so you can PM me if you need help.

Be aware of people saying they sell dogs to the police, if I were given a peso for every breeder claiming that, I'd have bought myself a house already.

kfer Here's another interesting find. Last two puppies from this litter are being offered for $435 each:

Hulk von der Zach


SG 4 COL(12-18 M) Mayra de Santa Monica

NancyJ Catu may be a good resource. I know she is in Chile which is not really neighbors with Columbia but she knows working lines and is in South America........

kfer Everything is relative. In Colombia:

-$650 is about 2 months of minimum wage work

-An entry-level mechanical engineer makes $650 a month

Very few people can pay $ 650 for a dog down there, let alone the training, vet and high-quality food it needs. So it's safe to say that the price is attractive for this puppy quality (buying from the U.S.)

msvette2u It is a good price in US dollars, like selzer I'm not sure what the "going rate" is there.
Here in the US they'd be $1500-2k most likely.

Wonder what shipping is, to the US...?

selzer Yes, the price is really good for WGSL dogs too, depending on what the going rate in Columbia is, I can't comment on that. I recognize some of the names in the dam's pedigree, but more in the sire's. It looks like a good catch.

WGSL dogs can be trained in protection, etc, if you want to.

kfer Those are the kind of dogs with pedigree available down there. Working lines are very rare.

Rerun Those are showline dogs, is that what you are after?

While construction is under way, I'm doing some research on the GSDs with pedigree available in Colombia. Just to give you an example, a litter of this breeding is being offered:

SG25 JKLR BSZS 2010- VA1(Col) Doll vom Klostermoor


Itta de Cerro Azul
V Itta de Cerro Azul

The price of a puppy is $650.

Mooch That's a great kennel design, wish I had something similar but a little bigger.

One thing I would be hesitant about is storing the dog food etc above the sleeping box Mainly cuz my guys are great at breaking into stuff LOL Or I'd forget to close the door properly and they'd scoff a bag of food
Otherwise I think it's a good design, if it's in a sunny spot you could perhaps consider a shade cloth style "sail" over the outdoor area of the run
