    Of a personal opinion, I would not purchase a GSD from a show line dog, simply because it may as well be a fault in the breed. The show line has a sloped back and the knees tend to have a turn (in or out, I can't remember) which can lead to hip and back problems. They also don't breed for temperament and many of them can have serious issues. Whereas, the working line is designed for a family environment. Straight back, strong straight back legs built for work and play with the kids, family camping trips etc. They also tend to breed more based on temperament over looks, hence why the colours can be so different. Working Shepherd all the way for me In fact, I'd probably go one step further and just get a Malanois instead haha.

    Keep us updated on the Rottie saga

    Thanks guys for all the input. This forum is nothing short of amazing. People on here are so informative, supportive and helpful.

    The breeder said the paper work has been delayed because he has had to get in touch with all the other purchasers of the litter in order to obtain microchips. I am for now giving him the benefit of the doubt. If all else fails i have Nehkbet to call on lol.....by the way Nehkbet THANK YOU for all your help

    Sounds promissing! My fingers and toes are crossed that it all works out how it is suppose to!

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    Maybe he didn't realise the rules changed and he's supposed to do the microchipping. What happens if some of the other buyers refuse to get microchips or are just slack - how long is he going to wait?

    I still don't like it but I'd go with what Nekhbet says.

    The rules changed, or came into force, is probably a better term, 1st January this year. If a breeder had of gotten the paperwork in beforehand then microchip numbers would not of been needed.

    If a litter was born prior to 1st January but the breeder didn't lodge paperwork prior to that date they still need the microchip numbers.

    So in a nutshell any paperwork for litter registrations received before 1st January 2012 would of been processed without microchip numbers. Any paperwork lodged after that date, even if the litter was born before that time requires microchips.

    From a breeders point of view I don't normally lodge paperwork until the puppies are about 7 weeks old + so that I can then better determine which ones will be on full and which ones will be on limited register. I do however think it is well worth paying the extra $30 for express processing and normally get the paperwork back within about 3 days.

    While the breeder can upgrade a from limited to full it does just give chances for things to go astray.

    The same rules apply in NSW.

    I figured if the puppy is four months old now, it was probably born around December, and less than 8 weeks old at 1st January. So all the rules about the breeder doing the microchippping would apply.

    Ie an ANKC breeder is not supposed to allow the puppy to go to a new home till it is 8 weeks, and if the sale is not completed until buyer is taking the puppy home, then the breeder should have done the microchipping.
