Buying a working line German shepherd overseas - Page 1

Hello, I am from Hong Kong and I would like to import a Working line German shepherd into Hong Kong.

I imported one from Germany about 10 years ago. She was very sweet and we Loved her very much But she failed completely as a guard dog:) ( even trainer in Hong Kong gave up since they said I am wasting money as she has no prey drive at all)

She passed away and we are now planning to get another dog. We need to import from overseas because this is not a popular breed and I couldn’t find reputable breeder in Hong Kong.

I am considering Buying from Germany, USA ( which min age requirement to be shipped to Hong Kong is 5 months ) and from UK ( min age requirement is 3 months ) .

Can someone recommend me a honest breeder or broker who has business Practice and will not take advantage of oversea buyer who cannot travel to meet the dog ?

Thanks.

The main problem is that a breeder out of country will likely send the pup they want you to have. You have to sell yourself as a serious trainer or know someone you trust.

Apple,

Yeah, that was exactly the problem with me last time. Do you think working with a reputable broker will help ?

baby blue, for a guarddog, you dont need preydrive, you dont need a sportdog, you need a dog that guards, so need some civil agression

Hello Duke,
Thanks for the suggestion, do you know where and how I can buy a dog like this with some guarantee of quality ?

what other qualities etc are you looking for besides guarding,

Duke,

Hello, I have 2 kids at home so I need a dog that is relatively clam and not over aggressive but still be able to perform his duty as a guard/ family protection dog.

Want a dog that is Sable or dark sable, I do not mind a larger size dog. Parents with good elbow and hip is important. Will be good if parents has high score in obidience and protection in IPO3/SCHH3. Tracking is less important for me

also prefer the breeder can train the dog in basic obedience till 5 months old as I can only import dog from Germany/ USA over 5 months of age without having to be quarantined. 
if in UK, I can import I think at around 3 months old. 
Thanks

a good dog with civil agression will never be agressive to its own, that is misconception, so best suitable for family is lower to medium drive dog with good territorial/civil

scores of parents are of no importance, as they are result of training, and that will not pas on the pups, but if you feel confident with that, one can select for that, finding pups/young dogs out of IPO 3 female will be bit harder to do as there  are not a lot of ipo 3 females

I will check importrules for you and check with a good and honest  breeder I know in germany if he can do this for you
