|have his hips and eblows been certified yet?|
do you have photos of the dog?
just becasue the dog has a pedigree, it doesnt mean he's breed worthy........

Not sure if hips and eblows been certified. I have Export Pedigree Certificate and Vet book, thats what I only received fom the breeder, it is also in Polish not my original Language. I also have new book from Animal Hospital where I took him for Annual Wellness Exam, Intestinal Parasite Screen and shots: DA2PP & Rabies vaccines. Signed as in good Health with no problems.
Yes I have few photos, how should i post them in here?

|WOW...You should check out the thread that is talking about breeding with or without "titles" I think that the jury has deliberated and the verdict is this.....yes get his hips/elbows done....as far as a working "title"....well you will get many opinions. mine is this....make sure that he can work! Not every German Shepherd is breeding quality just because the parents were.|

|Thank you JWalker, I defently will check.|
Your input such:
Titles are also a good way of keeping people honest. I know that there are people out there that will pretty much "PAY" for a title and the dog cant work worth sh*t. That ruins the credibility of dogs with legitimate titles.
Thats is my concern! So better fix him in this case if he will be a potential dog to ruin the credibility for his parents.
We still love him.

|i would say take him to your local schutzhund club and have them look at him. but do take this with a grain of salt some of the people will tell you your dog can be crappy especaly breeders. i took my male to my local club a wile back and i was told basicly meh hes decent...... i took him to another club and they rely liked him. so different people have different personalitys but i have seen people tell someone a amazing working dog was crap so they didnt have compatition.|

I would say forget about breeding and enjoy him for the reason you bought him...as a beautiful, intelligent companion. Whether or not to neuter him is your decision but I see no reason not to.

|Rember the rescues are full to the brim with people breeding so they can have a pup or give pups to family members, not every person is the perfect owner.|
No need to neuter your lad unless you are haveing problems, i have had full males it's up to you not to let him breed if he is not breed worthy.
Hip/Elbows , Hemophilia tested, take him to a local Sch club and have him acessed for working ability, and if he has potential start working him. do all this befor you start thinking about putting him to stud, also rember some dogs can change after being used at stud
Most of all enjoy your dog
