I think maybe Daddy isn't too pleased with her -- the boyfriend said , hey move in with me and I'll get you the puppy , and she loved the boyfriend and was ready to move out anyway so there you have it .
any way lets hope there are good futures ahead .

I hope you have all the puppies spayed/neutered before placing them so that this cycle does not continue.

Typhoon , the quote you posted is not my words . Actually that was Jakoda
"a really gorgeous puppy,,but, I don't see sable in either parents? Is that mom in the 3rd picture? and again in the last picture (far right?) In the 3rd pic I , she looks like a mix, but may be cause she is wet? The last pic she looks like a purebred but I don't see sable in her at all.
Could mom have gotten hooked up with another male possibly??? " ________________

But being a virtual "house o'sables" CARMSPACK.com I would question the female being sable but the pup sure is
This is the best and first GSD I've ever had.
I got my girl Piper a few days before she turned 12 weeks old.
So here are some pics of her from 12 weeks to now at almost 11 months.
she is a pretty dog .
regardless of whether the dam is sable or not , she has poor pigment - mask , nails , Your lovely female would be faulted on pigment , even sables can have fading pigment , nails should be hard and black not grey or brownish and not striped .
do you have pictures of your Harley's parents ?

In this picture...
...her back and tail look pretty similar to my last GSD, the late and much missed and beloved Harley, who I know was a sable...
Even her chest area is more the same than different.
Granted, I think Harley was a much more handsome GSD, but...am I missing something?

First, Piper is a very pretty girl.
I'm glad she came thru the delivery without any problems and I'm glad you are going to spay her after she has raised this litter. I'm sure you are aware that there are many facets of breeding including the pedigree, temperament, etc. Have you thought about contacting a rescue for the puppies? They often have contracts you could use and could help you with picking good homes. They may even have already approved home that are looking for puppies. Are you prepared to take the puppies back at any age and time to rehome them? If you can get the puppies into a good rescue, they will have back up for life.

You may have two temperamentally good dogs that got hooked up --- but they were not , are not . The mother , the most important was the shy dog that stayed at the back of the room against the wall. Both dogs run for cover when the vaccuum is in use so noise - sound sensitive , never mind gun fire test or conflict yelling . I am sure we have forum members whose dogs are a nuisance when they are trying to vaccuum because the dog will be actively engaged (in the way hampering progress) barking at the vaccuum and trying to catch the broom while it is going back and forth .
They are not tested in any way at all for temperament.
The male, Zeus coming from a family that has breeding gsd for 25 years , should have produced "something" noteworthy. The picture of Zeus shows poor conformation, not even particularly nice pigment . How in the world do you expect people spending money on improvements in breeding stock , ELIMINATING dogs that don't fit the criteria , test for hips , give GOOD food , when they don't even want to give their ailing or older dogs a proper end to life , opting to shoot them , all of them, because a bullet is cheaper than a vet appointment .
