Wanted to Find the Breeder of My GSD If Possible
by texaspeg49 on 07 October 2011 - 02:51
|I was promised the papers for my GSD when I got him but his fomer "Mom" has been diagnosed with sinus cancer. Which is the reason I was so previledged to get my baby. I am so sorry this young mother/woman is going thru this I hate to bother her. I'd love to get them but I wouldn't want or love him any less if I got them. I'm curious about his pedigree is all. I know he was born May 12, 2010 in Killeen, Tx at or close to the military base there. I think from what was said is that the breeder's puppies are always or mostly sold for military use. I do know that this young woman didn't send in the papers as of the time that I got the dog. She was packed up or something like that because of her illness and because of her husband being in Iraq. I may still get them from her but I'm a little apprehensive about it I guess. Both the breeder and this young lady I got the dog from were both in the military. The lady told me if the breeder had moved away it would be because her husband had been promoted or deployed. This is all I know. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thank you, Peggy|

|What is the dog's registered name? That will tell you who the breeder is, as it will include the name of the kennel. German dogs are named, for example, Larus von Batu, with Batu being the kennel name. American dogs are usually named, for example, Toro of Jeanden (with Jeanden being the kennel name.) Sometimes both the sire's and dam's kennel names are included, e.g., Pinebuck's Myra of Kismet, with Pinebuck being the dam's kennel, and Kismet being the sire's.|
Without knowing this information, your chances of finding the breeder are very slim.

|Look for newspaper postings in that area for July of that year you might luck into the info. Without the breeder's name, phone # or the reg #'s of the parents you are most likely out of luck. However if you're interested in s h owing in Obedience, Rally, Agillity, Tracking etc you can get an ILP (Indeffinate Listing Privledge) from the AKC to permit that. The only thing that you can't do is breed and register pups from your dog. Good luck|

|When we lived on Fort Hood, I volunteered at the vet offices/animal control and they didn't bring in Meds from regular breeders. Things may have changed but you can call the vet office on Fort Hood and they would be able to tell you a breeder's kennel name if they're now accepting dogs that way.|

|Clee27, can you clarify what those abreviations mean?|
Windwalker18, sorry to sound so dense but what would I look in a newspaper for? What would I look for?
And lastly, I never knew what his "name " was , just what she had named him which was Shush. But nothing like the breeder's name, etc.
I didn't hold out a lot of hope finding his pedigree, just thought it wouldn't hurt to ask and see if I was missing something.
I love him totally and it doesn't change a thing, I was just curious. I think I have something special in him but I'm in a very small place here in East Texas so I have no idea of anyone who is in the know that I might to take him to get an opinion. I was told there was a very talented breeder/trainer who is living very close to me but have no idea who he is, etc. no name,etc.
Thanks for all your ideas and time.

|Texaspeg, that had me scratching my head, too. First I though "Weapons of Mass Destruction", but then I realized he/she must mean "Military Working Dogs"! LOL! Military types do love their abbreviations!|
Good luck finding out more about your dog! But remember what one of my friends said about his much-loved GSD rescue: "The papers are here."
And he pointed to his heart.

|Sunsilver !!!!!!!! Of all things, thank you for helping me. Yes, he was from military dogs. I do know that. And your friend is totally correct about the papers. I took him at first not even asking about papers. They were an afterthought. However, I was very excited when she told me she did have papers. But I believe she may have had to move in with family because of her husband being in Iraq and her being diagnosed with sinus cancer. I didn't know about the cancer until well after we had Bear. I fully understood that those papers are the last thing on her mind right now. I will not worry her about them. I thought if someone maybe would have known someone who fit the description of the breeder I might get lucky.|
We absolutely love this wonderful puppy, I call him my baby dog, lol. Thanks again for helping me with the weapons of....... you get it. Peggy

THE trainer /aka top USA Schutzhund man I was referring to is Adrian Ledda/
who lives in Carthage.
I have his phone but he is in California right now.
THEY live in California, and have a second home here. When I get a hold of him I will let you know
His wife RITA was on the WORLD USA team many years ago and Adrian has helped train several of my pups and has been a very good and wonderful friend helping me with my Christys owner who died before he got her BH done and her tracking title
He is known among many here.
As soon as I get a hold of him I will pass your phone number on...
my phone is down could not call...one line I am on doesnt not have long distance.

|Hi Jan, Thank you for letting me know. I know you said you would check if he were here or not. I'd so love to let him see Bear and see what he thinks. Jan do you have any idea who might have known the breeder my dog came from? She was in or around Killeen and her dogs were used as military and law enforcement dogs a lot. My former owner thinks her husband was promoted and they moved to another place. How's things? How's Rex's kids coming along? I have to see them. I love Rex you know that. Thanks again, Peggy|

I have an idea who it might be and she use to be on our db here. I have her email address as she sold a police man who has one of my pups a dog.
I will email her your info and ask her does she have a clue
NExt info is, my best friend Jerri with the new pup who goes to Dave Kroyers, has a son doing his internship in Killeen at the army base. HE is in the army and his wife is there also.
THey just got back from Dave Kroyers to take Cuzko..I will relay message and let her know to check with both sources.
If anyone may know it will be DK or the other two breeders here in Texas who do raise dogs used in and for Military.
Also Jerri trains with a lady who has a State certified SAR dog who went thru training on state level who knows the ins and outs of these things..will pass on and question
Hopefully others in Texas will note this and maybe be of use.

|Yes, MWD does mean military working dog. If the parents of your GSD were MWDs on Fort Hood, the vet office on Fort Hood should be able to give you the information, or at a minimum take your information and give it to the people who bred your GSD. The Fort Hood vet office is the main hub for the south east Army bases. In my earlier post, I was explaining that the MWDs on Fort Hood were brought in from another base, not directly from breeders but things may have changed since we left.|

|Thank you YR, I'd really appreciate any help given. I won't be so insensitive as to keep on with the former owner while she is fighting cancer. So I thought I'd give it a shot myself. I'd really like to know what's with him and about his genes, etc. He is a super good dog I know that. His nerves are solid. he is never spooked. Anyway, any little bit of help is appreciated. Peggy|
