    Default German Sheppard breeder in Western Cape?

    Hi guys

    Does anyone know if a breeder in or around Cape Town? I am having a hard time finding anyone local.

    Also, should I not be able to find a puppy locally, how does the transport work should I find one up north? There seems to be many breeders up in GP.

    That would be the Kennel Union of SA. They only care about conformity so they will be of little help in getting a decent dog with good hips.

    Contact some local dog clubs and see who they recommend. Breeders of quality dogs don't have to advertise and you may expect an application process and a waiting list.

    GSD federation a good place to start. Top JHB breeder has just moved to Cape Town. Her kennel name is " Kinneret ". Buying a GSD is like buying a gun, buy the best you can afford. Good luck!

    Very good info here http://www.schaeferhunde.de/en/the-german-shepherd/

    My 8th GSD passed away a few months back; on the hunt for #9.

    German blood lines here in the US are tough to find. Most GSDs have been Americanized with the down sloping back. In the German standard that is a DQ.
