Re: looking for SAR prospect

just too small for a breeding female by the standard...has some foundation work, no dog aggression

This is exactly what someone needs to purchase, NOT a puppy especially a GSD. Sorry but true. pups are too much of a crap shoot and it is too long before you know what you are getting as far as drive for the work. Young adults are the best bet because what you see is what you get, I cannot tell you how many dogs have been brought to me that folks purchased as pups that I washed out in minutes. I have been breeding working dogs for 20years and even the best bred parents do not produce whole litters of dogs capable for the work and you cannot do enough evals on a pup to tell you what you will wind up with as an adult
