Oh Gator dog I think you hit the nail on the head .
" I've always grown up with dogs but always labs. She isn't papered but papers dont mean much to me as I don't plan on showing. My girl who I've named Piper, is just over 3 months. She was born on January 15th" (2012)
So the pups are 3 weeks (plus some) as we speak . The dog is 11 months . Gestation is 2 months . She was bred when she was 9 months of age.
I said what I thought . I would say the same thing over the phone and in person. If someone , out of the blue , were to call me and ask , "say, I've found this litter and here is the background information , I'm thinking of maybe getting one of the pups and I want your opinion " guess what? nothing would change , I would say the same thing. It's integrity.
"I get it how you see it, trust me." here is how I see it . You bought a female and quoting you "
I wanted to breed Piper at 2 years old. Unfortunately she got caught early by Zeus my bfs pure gsd. " Then on page 4 you contradict that statement with "When I bought her no, I wasnt going to breed her, never had the intention" and then you continue with the next sentence contradicting yourself - who was "never" going to breed with ". Did it happen earlier than i wanted and was I upset of course."
hey , at one time I was a reader of manuscripts before they were passed on for consideration for another read , possible publish -- I had to catch breaks in continuity -- so stuff like this glares.
"She's extremely laid back and I love it. She will play ball with you but never for very long before she gets bored of it. She lives to cuddle and go on long walks "
both Piper and Zeus hate the vaccuum " Piper hates it, so does Zeus..they both leave the room when I turn it on" so potentially the pups may have some noise/sound sensitivity.
Piper was the shy pup "It was my bf who got me to look at the shy girl in the back. A long coated sable pup female. The owners said first come first serve" , remember this
What attracted you to the GSD as a breed??
and - "Well than I'm sure one of her parents was sable but neither looked it to me." doubts about her being purebred
"I'm really excited to see the changes that she goes through! I got some pics of pipers parents. I must admit I wasn't impressed with the look of mom but dad was gorgeous. The pics are not that great but gives you an idea perhaps. The one pic the guy sent me of mom she's wet so I asked for one when she's dry but ill put up the ones I have of them. So dad is the blk and tan and mom is the light tan, I suppose she might be the "sable" one lol and then the one of the two of them together. Don't mind the hound in the middle.

a really gorgeous puppy,,but, I don't see sable in either parents? Is that mom in the 3rd picture? and again in the last picture (far right?) In the 3rd pic I , she looks like a mix, but may be cause she is wet? The last pic she looks like a purebred but I don't see sable in her at all.
Could mom have gotten hooked up with another male possibly???
what else can I say but OMG , OMG " would never be able to shoot my dog and don't really think its right. For me too many emotions and love for my animals for it to ever feel right shooting an animal. But my bfs parents have raised n bred Shepherds for over 25 yrs and his dad has shot all of their dogs when the time comes. He says he will never let a vet do the job. As he says, a bullet is a lot less expensive... "
here is Zeus , the sire of the baby pups
He looks pretty much the same age as the young Piper . I would speculate 3 or 4 months difference. He does not look like breeding material !
this is the history of your pups --
