I completely agree! The second does look ill. I would not do it. I paid $1800 for mine (not saying that you have to pay THAT much or more for a good pup) and am not sorry. Find a breeder who cares about the integrity of the breed, that shows or titles their own dogs and has hip,elbow and temperament testing done. Based solely on the pics you have here and the asking price, don't do it. Think about it....a reputable breeder who puts time, energy and resources into furthering the GSD breed in a responsible way will have WAY more than that invested in the pups. I realize that many breeders do not make a true monetary profit, but they would sell,their pups for way more than $350. Another point is that they would want to ask high enough of a price that the owner obviously has the means to care for them properly, feed them responsibly and get them proper veterinary care. Just my opinion....They look pure. I doubt for $350 they come from a decent breeder so my answer would be No, I would not pay it. That second one looks sickly.
Yep.If you have to ask if they are pure then I wouldn't buy one.
can you educate me on the white "spots" and why it is not a red flag? tksWhite on chest/paws is common. If I wasn't sure, I'd pass. Can be really hard to tell at this age (and not because of white paws). I wouldn't pay anything for a gamble if what I wanted was a purebred.
No it doesn't, but I don't think there's a reputable GSD breeder out there, who's buying/selling healthy dogs, doing health and temperament checks, putting titles on dogs, and deworming/vaccinating their puppies appropriately, who's selling them for under $1000. They know the value in what they are producing and the costs associated with raising a healthy puppy.charging 1000 does NOT make someone a reputable breeder.
