There's no sales allowed on here.

Where are you located?
"To break even"? On what? The original purchase price?
It's sad when people think dogs should help pay their bills

You can advertise & place information about the available puppies on the Pedigree Data Base.....many GSD enthusiasts frequent the board.

Advice as to the best way to get past this scenario, are there disability groups who could use smart dogs, The bred female costs 2600, I am food training the pups to sit to settle not be jumpers and maulers, to come, they are 12 weeks and I will continue to teach good habits to them . I am in Riverside county CALIF.

there are so so so many GSDs showing up on all the boards who have been dumped in shelters in CA....it looks like a very high risk state (for the dog!!) to breed GSDs...I hope you find these guys good homes where they are not at risk for being shelter fodder.....are there any obedience clubs near you? Perhaps a bulletin board ad some place where responsible people frequent will help...

A rescue is a thought I feel more responsibility to do the best even with losses, good home others in the mix , I really have mixed thoughts on this picture I am in, a panarama of ideas is needed.

Does the sire have papers? If so you can post the pedigree on pedigree database. Southern California is inundated with homeless shepherds. We have four rescues that I am aware of- So cal, OC, coastal, and westside. If your pups don't have papers you may want to consider a rescue.
