He looks purebred, but I'd look elsewhere for a puppy. Even if it means eating a little money spent.

We already signed us up for training classes. I know the GSD breed is very smart so I am confident Rico will pick up quick, but I also know all GSD are different so I will keep my patience and just enjoy each step!

he looks very nice , at least the head shot.

get a pedigree of his sire and dam .

DNA for parentage --I have used this lab for a DNA profile and were very pleased with the service . At the same time, with the same sample , you can test for DM , which might give you some peace of mind. Animal DNA Testing Services --

ask for 3 kits -- one for the dam, one for the sire, and one for the pup.

YOU take or be present when the cheek swab is done on the parent dogs which you understand to be the sire and dam of your pup . You mail it in . YOU pay for it , the information is YOURS .

Do you want to make the test a condition of sale?

Thanks for that info, that is good to know. I would get the test done just for my own information but that will not affect the decision of me bringing him home.
