|okkk thannx people for advise i really learned alot through this i must say some people really helped i read carefully and surely will correct my mistake and i picked up the mistake already by actualy rehoming my male after a 2 week absence caused the fight and those people thats out to insult me and actualy trying to degrade me for my actions if i knew i wouldnt have asked for help and if you cant help then dont ans my question because i feel like some people aint any help they just want to make you feel worse than the situation itself i mean i have german shepherds for 4 years now and never had any problems before now i learned something by rehoming a dog can mean trouble thanx i wont repeat that again in future we all make mistake and we all learn so some people when testing your dogs hips do remember to test yourself whether you can help or not.|

|The only thing I can say is I realy truely hope you listen to the advise previously given. |
I'd would HATE to see a GSD injuredor KILLED b/c of owner negligence.
Keeping them together is simply ASKING for problems. Heck you already have one, a BIG one.
I feel sorry for the dogs.
I'd hate to live in an environment where I have to fear fighting for my life every second of the day.

|Azhar,you did the right thing asking for help with your problem. Also, I know that you had to make a very difficult decision,and again you did the right thing for your dogs. Don't take the harsh words personally because this can be a very cold and impersonal platform sometimes.|

|Everyone here loves their dogs and the breed. Sometimes our "advice" is a bit blunt, but it comes from a good place. Remember, everyone here was a newbie once, no matter what they say or how harsh they come across. Good luck with your dogs.|

|With respect, if you ask a question like that, then you don't know what you are doing.|
That said, if someone has the courage to ask such a question, they should be answered sensitively. I'd rather people came on an educated themselves, than simply carried on making errors.
Fair play to you for asking.
Reiterate Ronin's advice.

|Azhar - this makes very interesting, if uncomfortable reading. You obviously didnt understand the situation you had got into with your two males. Its fine to ask, it just means that you are fairly novice and we all have to start somewhere.|
However, the uncomfortable reading is that most of us - when new to the breed (because 4 years experience is nothing) - didnt start with 4 dogs, and getting one mated at one`s aunts - for two weeks, so not much planning on ovulation either.
I hadmy first GSD for five years, learning, and reading about having a litter before I planned one, to keep a puppy.
The whole story makes me uncomfortable, so can you tell me, why you are using your dog at stud, and if he has been health screened, and the female that you loaned him out to for a fortnight - is she health screened, why did you let him go for two weeks, why weren`t you with him managing his use, getting the female to visit your property as is the norm....and have you had a litter to keep one of the puppies, making 5 dogs to are for, or what is your reason for breeding him?
What do you do with your dogs, do you work them? show them? do any kind of competition with them, or are you preparing them for something - or are they companion dogs to you - or breeding dogs. I am sure if others read yor full story, they would have more confidence to be able to answer you.
One thing is for sure without doubt - your dogs are suffering living under such anxiety - and it won`t stop there. Mo

|Ok after reading the entire post, initially I thought "Really how stupid" BUT like the poster said, we all have had our dreaded experiences first hand and have learned from them.|
So Poster: You did the right thing by placing your one male. But keeping a MALE PUPPY your going to be in for the SAME THING DOWN THE ROAD. This is not the breed that believes in Caring is ShARING so might I suggest you keep a female and before you breed again, please have the necessary genetic testing done.
