She is 1 year old and intact but will come with limited AKC papers as she is not a good candidate for breeding. She should be fixed and not bred. Sparrow is beautiful and well bred but has developed fear issues.

She needs training and time in a one dog household, or a home with very non-aggresive dogs.

We just want her in a good home where she can be happy.

She is not in a shelter and is located in Topeka, Kansas

Because people are often good at either misrepresenting themselves, forgetting to do things, running out of money because of many reasons, and careless, you should spay before letting her go.

Please do not leave it up to an adopter to get her altered--do it now before she goes to a new home!

You also might want to touch base with a reputable rescue in your area and see if they might assist you in placing her--you keep her until they have screened a new home.

I agree with above! Is this a pup from your own breeding?

There are pictures of her on my Website. I am considering having her spaid before I place her, and will not place her with just anybody, so I understand your concerns, but I will make sure the right thing is done. I have had long conversations with all of the folks that bought her litter mates and I have two of her littermates, myself, so I don't believe that this fear issue has a genetic component.....However, that said, if there is the slightest chance that she could pass on weak nerves, I would not want her bred. NONE of her litter mates are weak nerved in the slightest. NOW, I know that many of you have very strong feelings about these isssues; I am kindly asking that no one go on attack today. I have a beautiful very well bred German Shepherd Dog who I have decided does not fit into my breeding program and so I am looking for a new home for her. She does not exhibit fear/aggression but she has become very shy after being away from the rest of the pack for a period of weeks and then being re-introduced.

I have removed her from my pack environment before things escalated and actually have a woman coming to look at her as we speak. I will be placing her with Limited Registration to the right home, where she can excel and not be in fear of more aggresive dogs. She would work well with non-threatening dogs, in a one dog home and would do fine with cats.

Contact me via PM if you would like me to email you pics directly or have further interest or questions or suggestions. Thank you to all who have shown concern.

Can I make a suggestion? I know you'll screen potential homes thoroughly, if you can't or don't have time to spay her yourself,,I would ask for the amount it would cost to spay her, turn it over to the new owners vet to be used for spaying her, so you know for sure it would get done.

Hope she finds a good home:)

If she doesn't fit into your breeding program, why should she fit into someone elses...spay her now before you place her. Let her recover in the home she knows. Then rehome her after she's mended. As a breeder it is the responsible thing to do.

Dogs that are a bit shy can make the best pets. They are often more attached to the owner and easier to manage than the bold, outgoing dogs. Shy does not have to be bad, as long as it is not fear aggression.

Rebel GSD......She is definitely not "bad"....she is awesome in fact, and I hate to let her go, but I love her enough to be honest with myself, that she would be better off in a different environment. She is shy, but does not exhibit aggression, so you are right, with the right person, she will be exceptional. I am not placing her for me, I am doing it for her.

Onyx Girl----I clearly stated that she would be going with limited papers...so your comment about why I thought she would be good for someone else's breeding program is unfounded.

I placed her. If she does well this week, she will be the beginning of a therapy for Veterans program. A program where GSD's are rescued and trained for the purpose of placing with veterans.

ShepherdGirl......I wanted to thank you for your post. It looks like it got deleted, and I'm not sure why, since you were very nice, and not attacking and it was actually pertaining to my original post. BUT, just want to thank you. I asked the moderator why she deleted that one in a pm.....

Shepherdmom, not shepherd girl.....Sorry about that. I just noticed.
Thanks again for your post. I am hoping that this placement works out. I miss her already.

OK, limited registration does not prevent 2 people from breeding unaltered dogs. THAT is the point.

Thanks Shepherdmom. Yes, I was excited to hear about the new program for Vets too.

LOOK PEOPLE! THE MODERATOR DELETED A BUNCH OF POSTS WHERE I EXPLAINED THAT THIS DOG BEING BRED IS NOT AT ISSUE HERE!

SHE ALSO TOOK IT UPON HERSELF TO DELETE A POST FROM A PERSON WHO AGREED WITH ME THAT ATTACKS ON THIS FORUM ARE WRONG.

IF SHE WILL NOT CONTINUE TO DELETE THE ATTACKING POSTS THAT HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH MY ORIGINAL POSTING THEN I WILL SAY IT AGAIN:

YOU ARE RUINING THIS FORUM WITH YOUR TACTLESS ATTACKING BEHAVIOR BY RUNNING PEOPLE OFF FROM A SECTION OF THIS FORUM THAT IS DESIGNED TO HELP DOGS!

IF YOU HAVE AN OPINION ON LIMITED REGISTRATION, PLACING DOGS WITH PEOPLE YOU DONT KNOW OR WHO ARE MONSTERS OR IDIOTS, PLEASE START YOUR OWN THREAD AND STOP HIJACKING MINE!

You will have to ask the moderator that.......all I did was type in caps. I'm sure it will be deleted like all of the rest of them, where I defended myself from the Sharks in the sharktank that this forum has become, and like the post from another person who agreed with me.

She shouldn't get to pick and choose which posts she leaves up and which she deletes especially when people are hijacking a thread with nonsense and attacking the OP in an unfounded manner.

I deleted it myself....no sense adding fuel to your fire.
I hope your girl finds a great place....and her heat cycles don't interfere with her therapy work.

She is being spayed by her new owner! WHICH I EXPLAINED IN THE POST DELETED BY THE MODERATOR! Good Grief! I go out and put a little post, offering a beautiful dog for adoption......an opportunity for somebody to acquire a really special dog for the right person and not have to spend 1200.00 for her, and I am attacked by idiots over and over again, who don't know anything about me, or my intentions or my knowledge.

IF you have opinions that have nothing to do with someone's original thread, either pm or post your own thread to get your information out there! Heck make the thread sticky but don't be so ugly as to hijack someone elses thread!

I will never visit this section of the forum again and I will be making a formal complaint. There is no call for this judgemental crap. If you ran me off, you have run off others, and you are doing a huge and horrible disservice to the dogs in this section who are needing to find a home.
