I am thinking of breeding my German shepherd and wanted to k own if anyone knows were I would find a registered stud. My shepherd is from Germany, with papers. I got her while I was stationed there. She is almost 3 years old, but all of her records are in German. Any ideas were I can get them transcribed so I can have her registered in the US? Thanks.

Does she have health clearances and a title or titles? What can breeding her bring to the breed?

There are probably some people out there with registered studs that will help you, but please do it right.

Put titles on your female and clear her hips and elbows. Better the breed, not tear it down. If you breed your female and her temperament isn't correct, her structure isn't correct, and she has hip displaysia then that means she is going to pass down bad traits.

well, I am almost depressed enough to answer this.

You need to go to call the AKC and discuss what all you need to provide to get her registered in the AKC. I would suggest going on the AKC website and working your way around it prior to calling and talking with a person.

That is where you should start.

Welcome to the Board. You are likely going to get a lot of helpful and respectful opinions (right guys?).

Here are some previous threads that might help you figure out where to start:
http://www.germanshepherds.com/forum/choosing-breeder/137533-things-look-responsible-breeder.html

http://www.germanshepherds.com/forum/thinking-about-becoming-breeder/149422-so-you-want-breeder.html

Most of the people here are strong advocates of responsible breeding. Before you look for a stud, you need to get an idea of what your female brings to the table. At a minimum, she should be checked for the various medical and genetic issues that GSDs can carry. She would also preferably be worked in some venue that will prove her good temperament and working ability. Hope you'll look around more in the breeding forum to learn about these and ask questions before you breed.

No i am actually depressed about the verdict, not feeling well either.

This poster, he has an imported bitch pup, no idea what he needs to do, what kind of papers he has, what he needs to do to get her registered, wants to breed, needs a stud. That is not depressing, he may have a great dog. He may become an awesome breeder.

Just depressed in general.

He has to start with AKC if he is in the US, needs a stud, and wants to make registered puppies.

If your dog does not have titles, has not been OFA'd, is not a wonderful dog temperment and work wise then 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 her to have just one litter 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. Reputable breeders title, health test, temperment test and choose the best of the best to breed.

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 puppies dying 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.

I see. That was ridiculous, but another topic nonetheless.

I agree, here is my question....excuse my ignorance....

IF you decide to import a dog from another country do you not have to have all records with you? ie medical records and such? Just wondering...

The OP's dog may have import papers, but will need a signed Bescheinigung and/or export pedigree and/or the Ahnentafel. Then the OP will need to send all of that in to AKC along with money and pictures and a DNA sample. THEN if everything is in order the OP will get AKC papers.

Well, I have only imported Odessa, and she was an adult. So she had hips and elbows done over there, and that is right on her pink papers. Her shot record was sent, her show record, a Koer report -- those the AKC did not need.

She is tattooed.

What the AKC needed was a B-------- (a letter from the SV that says ownership was transfered to me as of a certain date, and signed); plus a copy of her pink papers (that includes her pedigree, hip and elbow, trials, etc.; plus a dna sample which was evaluated for $40 and kept on record -- I was sent a paper with the results -- not so much as results but markers. Then I could get the AKC registration.

Then I had to send another B-------- for the stud, pedigree and various papers, as he is NOT AKC, and submit a litter registration application. He will not need these as she is not bred, and should not be bred at this point until he can verify that his papers include breeding rights and are from a club that the AKC registers so that they will give him full AKC registration.

Oh yeah, forgot the pictures. Front shot and side view, with number and name on the back of them. 3x5s, but I sent 4x6's.

I have a great idea! Instead of all of us retyping what we have written a million times, we should put together an automated response regarding backyard breeding and how to become a reputable breeder. Then we can have one person responsible for pasting it on every post like this. If their story differs from the typical poster and we need to give them additional information, (EX: "My GSD wants to be a mother and will be depressed and not have a fulfilled life without puppies", we would need to tell them that dogs can live a fulfilled life without puppies) we can add on. Much more simple.

We do not know that this person will be a BYB.

He/She wants to breed their dog. That does not make them a BYB.

I think they were directed to the flow chart.

Oh no, I am not insinuating they are a BYB..I was trying to say we should inform them about backyard breeding then tell them how to be a reputable breeder :)

Wow! There was a lot of good info there and a lot of negative opinions there as well. Thank you to those of you who were not ** removed by Admin**. If I do choose to breed my dog I plan to do it as the Germans do it. I will try to post her pink papers, though I had her hips and elbows done there and the rest to be done here.
