Ok, I need some collective advice and help.

I have two almost 12 week old GSDs, working line, high drive puppies. Based on both parents and the aptitude these two are showing me, I will only consider working homes/experienced homes.

Only one will be sold, I am keeping the other, and at the moment I'd like to keep the female, but I am not picky.

My problem is, WHERE and HOW to advertise them so people know. I have placed ads on the pedigree database, and gotten responses. I have gone so far as to arrange shipping for a couple of people only to have them vanish.

So all that has left me is word of mouth, and I don't have a big mouth! LOL

Any ideas for sites, ads etc would be greatly appreciated.

Oh- pictures and video of rag work were done both at 9w and 11w so people could SEE them if they wanted, and I do have a website.

And for the record, I am not at all opposed to keeping them both, but I'd rather see one in their own working home.

michelle, i'm no expert, but i wouldn't arrange shipping for anyone until i had a cashier's check in the bank!!!
other than that, i guess you could try both vomdomburgerland.com and ddrlegends.com--at least most of the folks on those forums take workingline GSD seriously....other than that, i'm, as usual, no help whatsoever :(

I like the fact they finally made people sign up, and that you can hit the "view all" and see all the posts instead of going back and forth like an idiot.

Plus.......I am amused by them.

If you haven't sold the dang things by 12 weeks, I guess there wasn't that much interest in the breeding to begin with, now was there.

I have not advertised them at all, except for the pedigree database.
I have had interest from that, but no one that I have really wanted to sell one too....maybe I'm just being too picky and need to keep and work them both! ;)

But now I HAVE to go check out your chicagoland board.....

My Tarded-ness is from not explaining well. Thats my excuse and I'm sticking to it! ;)

I am not lamenting that I have not sold one- I have not advertised much, I still can't pick which one I want to keep, I like them both. Heck I haven't even used word of mouth with people I know in the area...


I was really just wondering what locations online people are using to look for/find working puppies. That was the goal of my post, and I realized I made it sound more like "Help, I can't sell my 12 week old puppies but I haven't advertised!" Ok maybe the Tard shoe fits.

I know nothing about what an SAR prospect should have and be doing, so I'd be the last person to advertise them for SAR work.

I do have a friend who does SAR, I imagine I could have her evaluate one for it. But since my are of experience is schutzhund, that is all I feel qualified to judge...
