Are you kidding me? So, the person doesn't have time for the puppy and wants to re-home it but he still wants to breed it?? What is wrong with people ...

Silly and stupid. If he cannot keep the dog how can the person possibly breed it.

As for credentials, never mentioned except the dog is European Breed.

co ownership is common, but to put a dog up for co ownership due to no space for a puppy... then breed the dog in return for a puppy... is beyond me.

if he'll have room for the new puppy in however many months - seems he'd have room for the original pup to return to living with him eh?

weirdo

i suggest neuter them both

Camerafodder, when you suggested to neuter them both, please tell me you were including the idiot who put the ad in and not just the puppys!

i reverse look upped (i know tense-wise that's a mess) the number and googled the woman's name along w/german shepherd - a bunch of online ads popped up, but i didn't see anything suggesting she had an actual kennel or was a proper breeder, but that's hardly a surprise given the ad.

yes, rereading it again, thats how i understand it as well, initially i thought it was a typo. doesnt make it too much better tho. if he's owed a pup, then there is the possibility of cashing in the debt when he has room, instead of acquiring the dog now then breeding it to get a pup later.

I have never heard of co-ownerships not with dogs. What is the piont in getting a dog/pup when you are not going to have it in your house, to get to know it love it, play, cuddle it?

I agree mom of ty, but it depends on which co-owner you are as to whether you really get to know that dog.
Co-ownerships it seems are more prevelant in performance and show arenas....maybe other areas as well???
But with a pet home not usually.

Co-ownerships can work very well and actually be better for the dog if the people behave. If you show or compete in sport and/or breed you can put a pup in a home where it will be the only dog, get a lot of one on one attention while you wait and see how he/she matures.

Much better for the dog then being in a kennel in my opinion.

Unforturnately the "people" factor often dooms most co-ownerships.

I don't care what it's called, personaly to me it's greed!
The person is 'owed' a PB GSD and immediately they see dollar signs! It doesn't matter what the behavior of the dog is. As long as it can have pups that's good enough!
Some people make me sick!

I can understand for a work or show dogs but if you are going to breed surely you need to know what temperment that this Pup is going to have. Iam sorry but you cant always relay on what papers the pup has or what the dame or sire is like. I know of this man who got a dog both dame and sire were realy good and had very good papers but his dog had a realy bad temp and could not be breed. I feel sorry for this pup and i hope who ever agrees to this that they run away with it. This man dose not deserves this pup or any pup. Sorry but the more i think about it the more
i get. work or show yes breed NO

I guess I don't see the big deal. I mean, I'd probably never go to a breeder that advertises to the general public, but I know more than one GOOD breeder that essentially gives dogs to friends and people they trust - people who are familiar with the breed and will WORK the dog, so it gets to be in a "normal" home with a family of it's own and still be shown in conformation, agility, obedience, etc. rather than with the breeder who might have 8 other dogs and loves them all, but c'mon you can't do as much with 9 dogs as you can with one at a time. I don't think it's fair to assume this is the same as dumping a dog for lack of space/time. Sometimes the BEST home for a dog is not staying with the breeder, but if the dog truly has what it takes to be an asset to the breeding program, then I can see why a breeder would place the dog with a friend.

i think usually when a dog is co-owned it is co-owned by the breeder who bred it and someone they know well who is showing or working the dog.

and i think that the arrangements exist for the purpose of keeping the dog in their breeding program - but most responsible breeders are still involved with the co-owned dog and know it well, and my guess is they generally have a prior relationship w/the co-owner (i.e., it is someone who's opinion they trust).

(correct me if i'm wrong)

this situation does note seem to follow normal co-ownership. like i said, i did a reverse look-up on her phone number than googled the name and 'german shepherd' and while a bunch of ads popped up, this woman is not attached to a kennel (at least, her name isn't) and there's no indication she is/would be a responsible breeder.

but based on my general impression of co-ownership, she's going about it in an irresponsible way anyways.

I'm not sticking up for this person and I'm not really advocating co ownerships but if it is done right (at least in my book) it does not automatically mean it will be bred.

I bought Pepper with the idea of breeding her. She was spayed at two years old. She would of been spayed if I co-owned her with someone and she lived with them.

The assumptions being made are probably correct, but there is room for doubt...............
