Default Why buyer beware is important

I think this link: http://http://germanshepherdzone.9k.com/ is a prime example of why puppy buyers should do their homework, plan to meet breeders in person and learn as much about their breed of choice as possible. I'm sure those who are familiar with and care about the breed would find many reasons to be concerned about this web site. For anyone who trains in Schutzhund, the description on the home page is quite interesting. This "breeder" isn't describing Schutzhund-style tracking, which is why it's important to have some firsthand knowledge of a subject before you publish your opinions.

Hmmm...strange. Here's the link again and another link to a related site. So important for potential GSD puppy buyers (and other breeds) to do their research.

That's what I thought would come up...many of us are already quite familiar with both the site and the breeder.

There are lots of educated people on this site. It's the people who are new to choosing a puppy or selecting a reputable breeder that may run into trouble. Many potential buyers see high prices (the prices for these puppies are just incredible!) and think that the huge dollar signs are equivalent to quality. Web sites are such a popular marketing tool that it's easy to get fooled, particularly when you start proclaiming knowledge about Schutzhund and true working dogs.
This "breeder" claims to be breeding working German shepherds but one of the females (the shepherd/malinois) is obviously a mix. If "Female2" is pure, then my own shepherd is part donkey.

Hmm. Was wondering where she went off to. Her last website url which was very similar to this one was changed. I think she got too much flack.
Is she still on other forums proclaiming to be what she is not?
