Can anyone give me a pedigree evaluation or oversight on this gsd pup?
Is this lil guy a huge mistake? Breeder said he purposely mated to enhance and acheive quality and characteristics. Parents seem solid and healthy,with great temperament as well as the pup. Any advice? Feedback greatly appreciated! Does this seem totally tabboo,abnormal,unethical,health risk,etc?has any readers mated or bred similar?please share..Thank you!

I’m guessing this is not a high dollar pup due to the uncommon inbreeding (in modern GSDs anyhow). Not the pup’s fault he’s bred this way; he’ll still need a good home regardless.
There are a few other holes in the close pedigree as well: like hips, titles, work etc.. Only dog I've seen in person is back in the 5th gen, Pardal.
But if you like what you see in the parents, and are satisfied with Fritz’s health, character and soundness - as can be reasonably determined at 4 months old - make an offer.

Sounds good thank you GK1! He bred for Very mild mannered,good temperament,loyal but non-aggressive with humans and farm animals. Not for champion or show. I guess a working companion,ranch dog from what it sounds if that makes sense? He does bark when he senses a threat.

If we are talking breeding for such quiet temperament, why are both Lola and Capitan photographed behind kennel wire ???

Con: there is a lot of what I'd consider backyard breeding in this pedigree that makes me wonder if the breeder is telling the truth about this being a deliberate breeding and not an 'oops' litter. The pictures of many of the dogs are very unprofessionally done, and many of the dogs in the mother's pedigree aren't titled or x-rayed, and I've never heard of most of the kennels.
Personally, I'd steer clear, but in the end, it's your decision.
Due to the lack of close inbreeding in any of the pedigrees except for what happened with the mother, I wouldn't be too worried about genetic issues. I just think the pedigree shows the breeder(s) did not know what they were doing, other than breeding pets.
