Cliff I've owned German shepherds for 35 years. I bought a beautiful little female from this breeder a year and a half ago. She is energetic, social with adults and children, healthy, smart, and was easy to train. She's protective when she needs to be. All good shepherd traits. Ive had a long time dog show judge and a professional dog trainer rave about her conformation. My Vet describes her as "perfect". To judge this breeder based on appearance and contract language is pretty shallow.

Oh, I can totally understand the breeder requiring the kennel name be used, and having all the names in a litter be related in some way, be it alphabetical or a "theme". It's the fact that their health guarantee (skimpy as it is) is voided if the dog's name doesn't meet their requirements that I find off-putting.

I've seen "health guarantees" that required you to feed a certain brand of food or give a certain vitamin supplement, but this is the first one I can remember that is voided over the dogs' name.

MaggieRoseLee May want to back off your looking for a few days. And instead do a bit more research into the breed and what a 'responsible' breeder actually should look like. For a 12+ year commitment it's best to take our time.

These are 2 great sites --> http://www.germanshepherds.com/forum...ind-puppy.html and --> http://www.germanshepherds.com/forum...e-bad-one.html

As well as generally wandering around the http://www.germanshepherds.com/forum...st-time-owner/

Be aware there are MANY good dogs in shelters and rescues too that are purebred GSD's. And if you live in California you really scored!

cltyus I also like schone stadt dogs, I asked this lady for more pics of the dam since she is sitting, she told me it would be some weeks until she can get one o_O

JakodaCD OA I personally wouldn't buy a dog from this person, to much all over the place, no rhyme or reason to the breedings. I do like the looks/pedigrees of his schone stadt dogs tho.

mego i think another red flag here is all their dogs are all over the place. Some ddr, some czech, some west german show line, some west german working line, some american show line in the mix. That covers about everything.

my boy diesel if u know the basic outline or conformation
a gsd should have
then you know there's something out of place
or missing from those dogs
none look like good examples of the breed
and when breeding
only the best of the best should be bred
those dogs are not the best of the best!
