The GSD I have now is from a reputable breeder. We have had very minimal vet bills and none due to his general health or being born with health issues.
I know some BYB dogs can be great dogs with solid temperaments and minimal health issues, but that was not our experience.

|llombardo||My female GSD cost me $200.00 off of CL and is a great dog. She is almost 3 and I haven't really put much money into her. She got sick once and they could never figure it out, most likely some kind of infection. Other then that a healthy, happy girl with a great temperament and nerves. My male GSD was $99 at the shelter. No real health issues with him either. He also has a great temperament and solid nerves, he is a certified therapy dog. Vets have told me over and over that both are great ambassadors for the breed and are a joy to be around. I think the CL dog is more closer to the standard as far as aloofness goes, but that could be age and maturity. My male loves to be goofy. I might have got lucky with both of them, but I wouldn't trade either of them. I actually was getting a GSD puppy from a reputable breeder when I found Midnite at the shelter. I passed on the puppy and busted him out of the shelter|

A dog could do anything to him or her self hurting themselves, or a fight could break out, totally out of your control. Parvo is indiscriminate, to a $5000.00 puppy or one someone gave you for free.
Back to the point of being "too good to be true." Craigs List is most certainly the worst place to get a GSD. If the litter owner will not pay for a good "puppy ad" like in the Los Angeles Times, for $75.00, it's likely the food is cheap, no hip x-rays were done, the pairing of the dam and the sire is "whim se do see" and your luck could run dry fast. Again, bless the Lord so far my GSD is great and I did not pay a fortune for her, but I did need to see the vet, she had UTI, having nothing to do with where the dog came from.. Craigs List is GOOD for bicycles and TV sets, ect...

I have a phenomenal puppy from Taylor Made (Jentry is all over their FB page). The entire experience was great and I couldn't be happier with her.

|gsdheeler||CKC is a huge red flag for me. I'd keep looking for a quality breeder.|
