    I got a child that started school today and the other one who cried all day because she missed her big sister. I got a bitch due in two days...I got enough on the go that I really do not have time or knowledge to train. Not past basic obedience. Never planned too.

    I am not even the one who finds the dogs and purchases them...would not really know what to look for. I am not the one in charge of the breeding either...that is what my mentor is for.

    I get the easy job really!

    None of my dogs live on chains...but really it ain't your business anyway now is it???

    If you were really familiar with breeding and genetics, you would know that you're going to get a variance in drive throughout the litter. Odds are that they're not going to all be working dogs - some pet, some working - if you're lucky.
    I guess it depends on your definition of true working people - I know that many canine handlers won't even look at a dog until it's older. Puppies are a crapshoot, no matter how good the breeding. Even reputable working line breeders have trouble finding good working homes.
    I would be immediately suspect of a working line breeder that didn't see some validity in Schutzhund, which began as the true breed test for the German shepherd.

    Well it really has been fun.

    But I really do need to get off to bed....before I get hooked for another hour here.


    Whether you agree with me or not...the people who want my puppies and the people who work with me....do agree. That is what is important.

    It is easy to gang up on someone without taking the time to actually go and see what you are ganging up on.

    I have recieved three deposits from all the bashing that started here months ago. People who actually wanted to see what all the nonsense was about. They were not disappointed...and neither am I.

    Take care......
    Good Night:popcorn:

    This just gets better all the time! :yikes: You're a breeder of working German shepherds that doesn't select or purchase the breeding stock, doesn't train any of the dogs and really isn't in charge of breeding. So I guess you take the deposits and final payments? Is that the easy job?
    This is so unbelieveable that I have to wonder if the web site and breeding program itself isn't a hoax.

    Exactly! Although I prefer a pup. I like having a pup grow up here. Buying dogs thier personalities are so different then the pups I raise and keep. Not in a bad way...just different

    Oh, don't worry. It's easy to see what the nonsense is about. You should be ashamed, which you won't, because there's simply too much money to be made. Those poor puppies....

    A very belated happy birthday Yuck.

    I do feel you have been two faced here and on the web, as documented by many here, for a long time.

    I wish you, your family and your dogs the best. I can only hope your buyers get what they have paid for.

    Im pretty quick to yell Troll in most cases.

    I dont think Yucks trolling even though she called herself out . What she is trying to defend or prove I have no idea but I dont think she is being trollish. Call it a hunch on my part.

    Not wanting to drag this thread out any further since I think this "breeder" has revealed her motives and lack of knowledge, but it's nice to see that she did take some advice to heart and amended her erroneous description of Schutzhund on her web site.
    Good for you, Yuckaduck! ;) And you've added your description of working dogs (though I'd remove "stuff like this" - it's pretty amateur).
    Oops...then there's more confusion on Yukon's page. Do you actually mean show lines when you refer to Schutzhund lines? Because Yukon's sire, Bazi, is a showlines dog, you mention that his dam's side compensates for something lacking in the sire's pedigree. There's nothing wrong with Schutzhund-titled dogs in the pedigree - I'm sure you don't want to give your puppy buyers the wrong impression that the years of work needed to achieve a Schutzhund title are worthless.
    As for Sky, I've never heard of a washed out, color schemed shepherd - it's just not a description ever used to describe a GSD. She looks part husky or maybe cattledog to me, but that's just an opinion. ;)
    Now if the dogs weren't pictured on logging chains, you'd be all set! :)

    i went to leave a comment last night as well, but nothing would go thru?? HMMM
    I thought I may have recognized those names. I swear I read on another forum maybe this one I don' know, her "stud" working dog that by the way has 100% showlines on one side and an untraceable mother on the other, was a rescue at some point that sounded like a fear biting spook, but to the uneducated that might seem like a good "working" dog. 125 lbs??? So where is the mother from, what's her pedigree. If you can get the pics up, you can scan a copy of the ped and post it. While your at it, get me a video too, i'd love to see these dogs work, better yet, bring them down here and I"ll work them, i'd love to see what these dogs have. You're poor mix, it looks nothing like any working mix in Europe and its not that widely done BTW, maybe in your mind, but not in reality. That mix just looks like it would like to be anywhere other than being confronted by an aggressor, in the face of no aggressor. Very shameful, poor thing.

    for 500 more bucks than your puppy price I can buy a green dog with lots of imprinting that I"ve seen take down 200 pound men, i know what it has. What's your mentor's name?? What's his kennel, his training, PM me if you'd like.
