When You Want To Buy A GSD. Questions To Ask. by PeraGSD: 12:24pm On Mar 17, 2019
So we have come across many people, breeders and others putting out puppies (GSD specifically) and persons who intend to buy one. So what questions should you be asking. Let's go with the questions the buyer should ask h/er self.

- Am i sure its a GSD i want or need
- What is my budget
- Do i want the dog for.. breeding, security need or just simply a dog lover
- Do i have the means to feed, pay vet bills, space and lifestyle that is compatible to a GSD as they need run around space, medium to large breed and can become destructive if not engaged.
- What line do i want.....show or work line. What color....Black and tan, black and red, white or black. What coat do i want...long, short, stock or fluffy. Mask....full black mask when dealing with Black and tan or red.
- Male or female and why

Questions to ask the breeder or seller
Always ask first about parents when its not pedigree or unregistered. This is the tricky part. Some breeders can get you twisted if they know you don't b know what you are looking for. We remember when were trying to assist a young dog lover to purchase a GSD from a breeder. The question was asked is she long coat? Breeder answered...."she's very hairy" meanwhile dog was a stock coat with no long coat in its pedigree. So always ask about parents. Go to great lengths to verify claims. Some breeders forge papers to claim parents are pedigree. If need be engage an experienced GSD person to help you verify claims. Why is it that you start asking questions about parents first. Its because you can't get puppies that'll be so much better than the parents. They usually end up as a mix of both or one is more pronounced than the other. The coat, mask, size, structure or line will be what puppy will grow into. Mind you all puppies are adorable grin Until 4 to 6 months later and it all begins to show.

So more on questions to ask when trying to buy a GSD.

Let us look at situation where seller is not in your vicinity or claims he is in another city or even country.

1. Look for trusted friend or another breeder in that location to go check what is claimed. Puppies, parents if he claims he has them, papers to authenticate vaccinations and worming regime. Then especially for showlines check gait of parents for knock knees, dancing hips or other genetic deformities common with this particular line which can be passed on to offspring.

2. If you have no one to help you check it out then you have to depend on shots and videos. Ensure you make a video call where seller is with pups and parents. Let him walk with them not just prerecorded video but alive one. If he's too impatient to show you all you ask for let the deal go.

3, Get unto dog WhatsApp groups and forums and ask other breeders in that location if he's known to them and probable history.

4. Ask if he is direct owner or reseller. Resellers can claim heaven on earth and deliver substitute. Some resellers are also top notch and really reliable. However clarify his status.

5. On the issue of payment terms it can be quite tricky if breeder is unknown. The more and credible reference you have have the lower the risk of payment before zero delivery so 'shine your eye' grin

6. Let a trusted breeder guide you. Breeders know themselves and can tell you what seller is hiding.

Lets feel free to add to these points so we can all learn.
