We just purchased our 4th GSD from breeder Mark Lee in GA. Dam is Gracie Lexis Vom landholz and Sire is Renaissance Von Cross. next line is River Underwood and Struwwelpeter. All of our dogs are AKC but we've never really been concerned with it until now. We are just curious. Our boy is in the forefront. His name is Tristan.

The breeder of the dam, Gracie Lexis vom Landholz, is a member of this board. So I'm sure she can provide lots of information on that dog and her parents and pedigree. Though I doubt Angela will be very happy to know that Gracie was bred so young.

Re: Pedigree? Can anyone tell me about these dogs

Great, 1 and half years old, no hip checks, no nothing. Then mixing a german working line with what it looks like name wise an american line male??


No I'm NOT happy. What are you curious about other than I'm sure the sire of your pup probably hasn't had his hips OFA'd either?

I don't know who Mark Lee is since that is not who she was sold to. I emailed the woman she was sold to in N. Georgia and will go from there.

Thanks Chris! I would be very happy to hear from Angela regarding our boy's mom. Also to know if she has any info on the breeder. He runs Mountain Dog Boarding in Blue Ridge, GA

Tammy, no conflict really. I just don't approve of my dogs being used for breeding under 2 yrs old, no hip checks, and when the owner of the dog didn't notify me verbally or written as per the contract that she wanted to sell/rehome the dog. I was supposed to have first option to get the dog back, which I would've taken her back as I have other dogs in the past. Prob. nothing I can do about it now, but as for future litters, there are changes in the makings due to 1 person. I just feel really sad for the way Lexi's life is now going to be.

I hope she doesn't get bred back to back with 9 pups, but something tells me she will.

This really awful! I feel bad for these poor dogs. Is there any legal resourse re breaking the contract with you re Lexi?

Would a limited registration have helped this?

I'm not sure if the dog was sold under that type of contract... or if that would have stopped the person from breeding the dog anyway..

Since the dog was re-sold w/o the breeder's knowledge can she get her back? legally?

There are ways for "breeders" ( a term I use loosely here) to get around limited registration. They can just register the puppies with one of the fake registries. So even limited registration isn't foolproof, though it can certainly help. If nothing else it provides some hurdles the BYB/puppymiller would have to overcome, and without AKC the pups may be less marketable.

Depending on the wording of the contract, the original breeder may be able to get the dog back somehow. Sounds like she had First Right of Refusal, so that part of the contract was broken by the original buyer. Though it could be extremely costly in legal fees to do so. I'm sure Angela's working on getting involved in this and weighing her options.
