misslesleedavis1 If your heart is absolutely set on a pb gsd, then its best not to blind buy, I think if I was dead set on a gsd pup I would travel to it and see the parents . Gorgeous puppies tho! !!!! .

the same problem as Lucile

Hello, i'm having the same problem, I'm about to buy a GSD puppy but he also as all his paws white and the tip of his tail white, Pls tell me if he is a purebred. Because I read that the white paws can occur but white tip tail NO. The puppy is about 1 month old.

lhczth Actually white toes and chest markings do happen in sable pups. These are both the same pup at different age.




The white tail tip would make me question the purebred status of the pup. We would need to see pictures.

Castlemaid The overall grey could be a sable, and a white patch on the chest is possible, but sable with white on the paws and a white tipped tail is not very likely. Sounds like a mix.

But how does an 11 week old puppy not get along with another dog? It's a puppy, he wants to play! Pups can be overwhelming at times, but that is up to the owner to separate older dogs and give them a break from on-going puppy harassment.

Doesn't mean they don't get along - not sure what the issue is that the person needs to sell the pup.

If they want it to have a good home, I'll give that dog a good home (especially since you're being recommended by a friend), but I'm not about to pay you for a dog that you did nothing for. This is a lesson learned and not a way to recoup the costs of a dog.

You also have no way of knowing how much she paid for the dog, what kind of veterinary care he's gotten, and what if she does this on a regular basis, makes up some sob story and then makes a profit off of a shelter or rescue dog.
Agreed, you will be 100% financially responsible for the rest of this pups life. You are doing this woman a huge favor.

Liesje White tail tip would be a major red flag, I've never ever seen that on a GSD. Toes and/or chest patch, yes.
