LeoRose Maybe I'm just looking at it wrong, but it looks like they had three different litters (for a total of 19 puppies) whelped in less than two weeks. Plus, it appears they have at least five more breedings planned for 2014. If so, then that's just WAY too many litters for me to be comfortable with.

Really random note... publishing the waiting list for each litter strikes me as odd- is that common practice?
I've never really understood the point of doing this, and don't really care for it, but there are breeders that do this

Well, considering if you go with SV style dogs, that's your only option, it's really not that different.

The SV says coats can only be bred to other coats.

And who says that just because you're breeding two coaties together you're breeding FOR coats? There are other considerations (with the good breeders), and the two animals just happen to be coated.

MustLoveGSDs I am in Houston. What kind of GSD are you looking for? American, European, Show line, Working line? What are your goals for the dog?

Makobytes There is a difference between a long stock coat, which is acceptable and a long coat which is not acceptable to the SV.
One thing I found interesting is their first GSD is only four years old and they already have ten breeding females.

The only red flag for me is that they are crossing lines with no thought. I, personally, am an advocate for crossing the lines, but they seem to be doing it just to do it. There's no goal.

Overall, you certainly could do better
To me, having coaties show up in a litter vs. breeding FOR coaties is very different. Fact is it is still a fault so why would you intentionally breed against the standard?

Chris Wild "Coatie" = long stock coat. A much longer, more fluffy coat type than the normal, standard "stock coat".

I stand corrected on the coated- thank you!

I looked for stamps of any kind and couldn't find them on the majority on PDB, so that was what threw the flag for me. Doesn't mean they weren't done, but like I said, it's definitely something I would ask about. Most of the dogs do have nice conformation, but a couple of the bitches in particular stood out as less than stellar... which goes back to the point of "throwing dogs together just because."

Breeding coaties tends to be frowned upon as well
