Also, there was time difference in when the pup comes home. Either breeder was end of March. There was however a hug cost difference... Here's a link to the other thread in the intro section. I'll be posting all updates there from now on. Thanks again everybody!

|boomer11||Wow good job! Choosing a pet that's going to be with you for at least 10 years is not a choice to be taken lightly. There is such a huge difference between a dog that you have to worry about and manage and one that you can just enjoy. Not a lot of people have the self control to cancel and wait so kudos to you.|

Thanks for your advice
Thank you to you all for your guidance and advice, it is truly appreciated. I did heed your warning and cancel my deposit with BandT. I found a local breeder here in SoCal and the family and I went to go walk around the facility today. We placed a deposit and will be choosing our puppy on the 29th. I did get to mingle with the 10 puppy liter this afternoon and the wife snapped this picture, tilt your head and say ohhhhh......

Depending on how committed you are I'd think about reevaluating. You could find a pup closer without even breaking a sweat.

|onyx'girl||oooh, not a place I'd want a pup from. Sorry Maverick27, but you should re-think this purchase. Here is a good website to learn about choosing a responsible breeder: German Shepherd Guide - Home|

this place is a puppy mill
there is no way it is a good or reputable breeder i am sorry to say
B and T Canine Corral
there is no way a good breeder would have such a huge variation of dog they breed and in the quantities they are breeding
not to mention these puppies dont even look purebred gsd
the first two here look Doberman x sadly enough!

you are likely to have poor temperaments and illnesses from the git go with this breeder

No I have not seen any video of the pups playing but I think that's a good idea, thank you. I know, because I checked, there is likely a layover in Dallas for the dog, there are no direct flights into PSP from OKC, there will be at least one layover. OK Dept of Ag does yearly inspections of the facility, but I hear what you two are saying about complaints, etc. Thanks for getting back, you've put me at ease about shipping the puppy. I'll contact the breeder and ask for some video, I have a friend in the area maybe she could check the place out for me.

AKC and OK dept of AG can only tell you that member ship fees are paid, that there are no grievances with registration papers not being forwarded , or disputes about inaccuracies in reporting sire and dam, AND the dept of AG identifies the facility as meeting standards of care and code. NOTHING about the animals or the breeding program .
I have shipped and received pups by air --- . In fact later this month a pup will be flying in from Oregon to Ontario - basically across the continent . no concerns
IF the dog comes from sound background , has been raised to be well socialized , is not showing any concerning behaviour (which should be a deal breaker end of story) then there is no problem in shipping.
It might be a long journey but not necessarily exhausting . The dog isn't doing anything -- opportunity to have a good snooze.
On the other hand if the dog arrives and you have problems , don't pin it on the flight as an excuse or cause .
get a video of the dog see if you like what you see
