Stopped a car yesterday!

A woman pulled over as I walked Dakota yesterday and wanted to know if she was having puppies any time soon.



I was like, well no. She only 4 months old!!

She asked me if I was planning on breeding her and told her no because of the white mark she has on her chest. She seemed disappointed. She asked when I got her and where. She told me that she was looking for a female GSD but can't find one she can afford. We only got Kota for 300 and the woman thought I was crazy for paying that. She then told me that she used to have a miniature German Shepherd (??? what the ???) and that it was put down because she bit someone and that someone took her to court. I tried to act sympathetic but I couldn't help but think that IF I was breeding GSD's and IF I had some up for adoption, I wouldn't EVER tell her!!!

I suppose she meant well but geez. Is it just me or do you sometimes think that some people just should NOT have animals!?

*shaking my head* Some people...

$300 is cheap for purebred GSD! And there is no such thing as a mini GSD.

I'm with Jodi.. $300 is cheap for a GSD. I would soooooooo not give/sell her one either.

Never heard of a mini gsd before either.

The GSD dog I want is $1800

My neighbor had a GSD mix that looked like a purebred but miniature GSD. Maybe that's what the woman had. Who can say?

Some people should definitely not own animals...

Hm, thinking about it...My dogs as pups stopped a car before, as well. But luckily for me (and them) the lady who stopped to ask about them wasn't creepy. She said she was looking for a Cattle Dog, and I told her where I got Levi, and she said she wanted to get a female. (I was kind of fearing a mention of breeding her future female to him. but she didn't mention it. Back then I didn't know if Levi should be bred or not. Later decided he should not.)

My shepherd mix is 55 pounds and I get a lot of "is he a german shepherd?" when I walk him. Maybe she did have a mix who she thought was a mini gsd. But if she won't pay $300 for a purebred then she shouldn't have one.

I had someone stop there car once to ask me if my white shepherd was a wolf. hehe.

Brittney,

I love white Shepherds... Sigh!

I had a woman stop and ask me if my CATTLE DOG was a wolf. I don't know, but I don't see a bit of wolf in him or understand why she'd say that. I've never met an ACD who looked wolfish. I know mine didn't, at least. Maybe she meant to say "dingo" instead of "wolf?" He definitely looks part Dingo. I don't know where she got "wolf" from. ACDs aren't usually one of the wolfish breeds. I can at least kind of understand why someone would think a white GSD would be a wolf.

I dunno about the mini thing...never heard of one...but I dont think i would pay $300 for a dog either...there are soo many out there for free or way cheaper that need a good home but a lot of people dont want them cuz they are not purebred and i think they are just as good.

I am curious as to why you wont breed her because of a white mark on her chest?

GSD's that aren't "White German Shepherds" should have no white. It's a disqualification as far as I know when it comes to breed standards for black and tans, etc.

Besides that I'm not a breeder, and IF I bred her, that'd make me a BackYard Breeder and I really don't wanna be listed as one of them.
