Back in August I had a good friend pass away in which owned this 3 year old male. His widow has now decided to find him a home as she is getting ready to relocate and can not keep him. He comes from W/German & DDR lines. Some of you may know the dog in question named Brix Vom Boeselager now names Wiley. He has been raised with another male and shows no dominience issues. Has been protective of my friends widow. I have seen this boy about 18 months ago and at this time It took about 30 minutes for him to warm up to me. Anyone interested can contact me @ 870-736-4737 and I will be happy to give you the  number in which you can contact the owner for all information needed. He is now located in Detriot Michigan

Breeders shouldnt breed unless they are always prepared to take back their dogs! They brought them into this world and have a responsibility to keep them safe.

His owner contacted the breeder and was told that they couldn't take him back for what reasons I have no idea.

Did Kelly really say that? I'm surprised. 

I'm sure someone has told her by now, if she didn't know before, that the dog is needing a home.

Nice looking boy. He looks like he could use some work!!! Looks to be a bit heavy. Would love to get this boy into shape and see what we have here. I think he says it all with his eye's. Will be thinking about this boy. Problem is room. Trying to solve this room problem now. Please keep us updated. Take Care

I also would be surprised if Kelley said that. I would be willing to bet if "he could get to her",she would take him in,and get him a home!

I would be extremely angry if I were Kelly and the owner hadn't called me, but now someone else was posting that I'd said I wouldn't take the dog back. How do we know the owner actually called? Maybe she felt guilty so she just said she did but she didn't really? This is why i offer a refund; I hope to overcome pride issues with $$ so that I would know if something like happens.

The owners widow had contacted breeder and was told that she would come and take him, but only to get a call back weeks later telling the owner that she couldn't take him and I have posted this thread in a few other places also. She know all about Brix needing a home but refuses for what reason I don't know to help find him a home but rather send me nasty messages not to include her name or kennel or website. So as you all see I haven't included nothing about her or her kennel

Hey, do you want me to put it up on FB for you. Someone who is looking might see him. I have plenty of dog friends who might also know someone... ?

GSD Pack  You are welcome to post this thread where ever as long as we can find him a home. This thread is not meant to bash the breeder but to find this male a home. With the way the ecomony is I wouldn't doubt that she couldn't afford to take him back. Many of you all here may remember the thread that was made here a few years ago to help pitch in for the surgery needed at the time for his front leg and at that time the breeder wanted to do the right thing but couldn't afford the operation reguired.

If the breeder (for whatever reason) says she can't take him back, doesn't sound like the dog would be in a good place anyway. He has a far better chance of getting a home through other avenue's. Like here

Is this the same dog that needed foreleg surgery, which was facilitated finacially through donations from people on this forum???  'Cause I coulda swore that dog's name was Brix......

Edited to add:

Yep, just did a search on here, and Brix is indeed the dog that needed implants in the forelegs to correct developmental defects.  And yes, the breeder did post request on here for donations to a Chip-In site to help cover the costs of that surgery.

If the breeder is 'unable' to take this dog back now, it may be due to the three adults listed on her website as being available for adoption--one from her 'D' litter, born 2011, and two from her 'C' litter from 2010.  Perhaps all their "extra" kennel space is occupied with these three?  

Of course, if that's the case, then frankly, the breeder has no business planning a Spring 2013 litter, when they are still having difficulty placing pups from their previous litters--and perhaps the breeding stock being used ought be retired now, as it seems to be producing a good share of soft ears that don't fully stand....

I do hope this breeder does right by this Brix, after all the emotion she expended when he was in need of expensive surgical aid...
