    with the parents checked for hip and elbow dysplasia, micro-chipped, vaccinated and registered.

    I would like it to be at the end of august start of september if possible as its very cold where i live, i work during the day and i don't what to leave the pup in the cold, i also live alone so
    he/she will get alot of attention and well looked after.

    As far as i am aware, there aren't any German Shepherd breeders on this site. I'll put a link to a list of registered German Shepherd breeders in NSW. I'd recommend that you look at their websites, find one that you like and then email them telling them about yourself and what you are looking for in your pup

    German Shepherd Dog Breeders, Australia

    Good luck, and i hope you find just the pup you're looking for

    You also may have to wait much longer than spring for a puppy to become available. As Hyacinth mentioned in another post it can take up to a year for a puppy to come up.

    I would also go to some dog shows and meet some breeders. They may be able to offer you advice or could know of any upcoming litters. It will also help you find a breeder that you like.

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

    From an ANKC registered breeder? Note any ad you see that says "registered" and "purebred" is not an ANKC registered pedigree.

    in the GSD there are such things as "working line" but I don't know who breeds them.

    You'd want to find a sport dog club in your area. If I wanted to find one of those - I'd ask Steve Courtney at K9 PRO - The K9 Professionals
    he's more into Malinois or Belgian (ballistic) shepherds, but he should know who has the GSDs.

    No good breeder will be able to offer you a pup this spring unless one of their buyers already on their waiting list drops out or they have an unexpectedly huge litter - but that's not likely either because they get ultrasounds and usually know how many puppies are coming.

    When i looked for mine, i found breeders on internet. Took a look at their dogs. Took a look at what offspring they'd produced and if they'd got anywhere in working titles i was interested in.

    Maybe this might help you?
    GSD Club NSW has registered local breeders, same for Vic. So check em both out.
    It might be good to consider what you want this dog to do, so you can decide if you want working or conformation lines, depending on the shape you like.
    Only come back here when you get him, and put up a pic, as im a sucker for blue eyed GSD pups, and rather smitten with the uneven ear thang they have going fora couple of months. Either way, im happy for a GSD pic !

    Although this is very true in most cases, I wouldn't say that NO good breeder would be able to offer that.
    When i emailed the breeder that i got Koda from, I was simply expressing interest and asking a few questions also explaining what i'd like in a pup.
    I got a reply saying that the breeder had a litter that were 7 weeks old and there was one boy still without a confirmed owner...
    The following weekend i went to see the pups and ended up coming home with Koda, so for me it all happened very quickly.

    Hi Koda

    It usually happens when they get more puppies than they had buyers lined up for, or a buyer drops out. But ideally - they have homes lined up for all the puppies before they start.

    I agree, having buyers early is ideal
    The breeder that Koda came from is registered and reputable, however, i got the impression that the breeder didn't have buyers planned for her pups. It was only a small litter of four pups, and I remember when we went to see the pups, there was a little black tri boy who apparently no one had shown interest in, and still didn't have a home. (He was an absolutely gorgeous pup though!) I do think that there are some breeders out there who do this. I'm not saying that it is common among the registered breeders, just saying that it does happen sometimes.
