Default Puppy Mill?

What do you guys think???

No I am not considering a GSD so dont even go there. I just came across the website doing a general search. They have alot of pups planned this year.

Well...from what I've learned from this forum regarding such things is that:

Breeders who advertise online are byb's.
Breeders who advertise online are only after your money.
Breeders who advertise online do not really care about the dogs.
Breeders who advertise at all are byb's.

All of which is total nonsense...

Those guys look like a good bunch of people, the dogs look very healthy and cared for, and their site is constructed really well. I see nothing wrong with them.

They may have a dozen breeding pairs.

They have 9 adults for sale currently.

Jenn, also if you explore their site, they cater to police services, S&R services, therapy services as well as breed show-quality and "pet" dogs. Their facillity is also rather large.

Yes it is large I just dont see how you can give quality attention to that many dogs/puppies

9 litters between Jan. and April? I see no reason to produce that many pups. Just becouse someones website looks good or the dogs look healthy means nothing. Did you see health testing?

I agree with corsomom, just because they have a good looking website, doesn't mean they are responsible breeders. I am not saying they aren't, you need to find more info on these people. Do they show? Do the dogs have a pedigree? And what about the health testing?
