She's beautiful.

Gotta say uh-oh to the baby momma comment though.

Another new post with a reference to having puppies.
Yes, you have a beautiful pup! But you're not going to get a lot of pats on the back for the baby momma comment.

I sure hope you are a reputable breeder, with experience, titled dogs, health testing etc, cause if not, you're not going to win a lot of great comments (or fans).

Does that mean you are not going to have litters of puppies with her?

I havnt been around message boards in regard to pets until now so forgive my ignorance. We have intended on buying a male in 2 years and having no more than 2 litters. I know some people are passionate about not breeding but Im not sure why. This will probably link me to many opinions about breeding and the pros and cons. The question will inevitably be asked why do we want to breed? Just think they are cute? Can you handle the medical aspects? What if you cant get rid of your dogs, are you going to give them to already overwhelmed shelters and have them chosen over other dogs needing homes? We have considered all of these questions and have 18 months before we will breed her, if that soon. We are not hoarders, nor do we feel the need for the love of 10 puppies yipping at our heels, we have family and friends who want some, all of whom are dog owners, lovers.

Please do not breed your dog, there are already way too many animals dying in shelters everyday because people "wanted a puppy from their dog" or they wanted to make a quick buck or their unaltered animal got out and bred with another dog or strays that keep reproducing. So please go take a look at your local animal shelter, more than half of those dogs in there will not be making it back out.

If more people were responsible then we wouldn't have so many animals dying every single day in shelters.

Breeding should be left to reputable Breeders, people that are looking to better the breed, people looking to breed healthier GSD's and GSD's that have great temperment and the ability to preform any task that their owner gives to them. Also, there is a chance that your female could have complications during labor and die along with her puppies. Do you want to take that chance?


You have to look at the big picture, if you bring 10 puppies into the world when you breed your GSD and 2 of those puppies get bred and they have 10 puppies and 2 of those puppies get bred and they have 10 puppies each, in a matter of about 5-10 years YOU brought 50 more puppies into this world when there are already puppiesdying in shelters everyday because there are not enough homes for them all.

Your puppies will have puppies, and those puppies will have puppies........ the cycle will continue.

Many people here are going to tell you that is not a reason to have puppies. The world is full of dogs in shelters and rescues because people want to give their family and friends a cute puppy. Cute puppy grows up to have behavior problems because of the lack of proper training and socialization. Or said puppy grew up to bite someone. Where does that cute puppy end up? A shelter or rescue. This is NOT a breed to mess with.

Please do some research and if you insist on breeding, please be sure to do it right.
Title your dogs, do all required health testing and OFA certs. This breed is predisposed to many health problems including hip and joint diseases.
No dog should be bred because family and friends want them.
