3 months and 2 days. I believe she was so loyal she wouldn't leave me. We put her to sleep because she stopped drinking. She had been in a wheelchair
for about a year and it gave her a year of happiness she enjoyed immensely. But that is not why I am requesting help. We found what seemed to be
a very reputable breeder and put a deposit on our new GSD puppy. We were on a list but didn't mind waiting. About 7 months later the breeder contacted
us and told us he was born and who the sire and dam were pictures on his website. He told us when we could come to pick up and had to attend a 2-3 hour
session. Our drive was 15+ hours. Long story trying to shorten. We were told to address an envelope to ourselves and at the end he would explain why.
Come to find out he had not registered litter yet. Anyway months later he informed us he had mailed the registration to us a month ago using the envelope
we addressed when we were there and gave me his UKC #. He stated that duplicates were hard to get and to put them in a safe place. He said that there
must be a problem with our carrier and he had not received them back. Now he wants $100.00 to get a duplicate and send it via tracking. I asked him if
he could take a picture so I could see lineage but he only told me who Sire was and maternal grandparents and said my pup and momma were born in the
United States but would not acknowledge who the dam was that he had told me was months before. I am currently trying to get my texts that are over 6
months old. I did an embark dna test only to find out that his COI is 25%. I contacted UKC and they told me they would investigate because no DNA was
done on the registration # I gave if I wanted to proceed and their was no inbreeding listed on paperwork. Should I continue and how?? Any help would be
so appreciated and I will supply more info if it is private. Our dog shows much signs of aggression and I am getting a little concerned.

If your male dog is a teenager (adolescent)/maturing, hormones may have a lot to do with increased aggression. If you've never raised a male GSD puppy before, when they get to this stage, it's somewhat different than a female puppy.
You may need to see a Veterinarian to ensure medically everything is OK. Your Vet can also advise on aggression.
Spend extra time with the dog and extra training, exercise, and mental stimulation. If necessary, seek a local trainer for help.
AKC also has training advice.
If you decide to pay the $100, you might consider using a credit card (NOT debit card) or cashier's check for everyone's protection. If you send a cashier's check, send it some way that requires the recipient to sign for it and provides proof to you.
Keep all emails, texts, receipts, puppy contracts, etc. The puppy's parents should be on your breeder's website. If the website no longer reflects the parents of the litter, Internet Archive may have a snapshot of the website from a time that it did. You might also check social media pages and posts from your breeder for the information you're looking for.
Your carrier should be able to help you with texts over 6 months old.

Kimbrely you should have PM'd a moderator privately about this and not just add it to a subject unconnected.

I can't advise you to place this canine in a case or not, I don't know whether he will pressure bark to the mark of sale. Simultaneously, I cannot advise you to leave him loose on the grounds that I don't know whether he will annihilate your home.
I can perceive you that in any event, when you are not preparing, you ARE preparing, meaning the canine is gaining from ALL connections with you, In this way, ensure that you are steady with how you manage him.
