what type of breeder did she buy her gsd from ? was she sold on a spay neuter contract ie: limited registration or was she sold as a working or show quality pup ?how old is the female gsd ? does your friend participate in any sport such as herding, agility, or schutzhund with her gsd or is it just a family pet ? does she akc show her dog in conformation ? has she done any of the genetic health testing on her female to see if it is even quality to be bred ? is she ofa'd hips and elboes clear ? what is her motivation behind breeding her female ? whose male dog is she going to use, a friends ? what lines is her female from american or german ? what lines is the stud from ? not for nothing but this breed has been all the way to hell because of byb's and is not making much progress in coming back from there. i would truly hate to see more ill bred, ill tempered gsd's born. responsible show breeders have done enough to ruin a once wonderfully sound animal, and the byb's have perpetuated it.
If she's just doing it for the money, then I would say yes, she is a byb. Is her dog at least 2 years old? Has she had her dog tested for dysplasia, etc? Is she going to offer a health guarantee for the pups? There's a lot more involved than just throwing 2 dogs together. You might want to look up ltlgto's post on the true cost of breeding. It has a lot of info that you should maybe pass on to your friend.
she has two GSD a female and a male. The female is 2 and male is 3. She got them from a cousin that couldn't afford to take care of them She is get them tested for all of the hip displasia and stuff, nothing wrong wit them . Her cousin didn't say anything about spaying or nutering them. edit*-she is not doing it for the money, she really loves the dogs.
in my opinion, i would try and talk your friend out of it. she has no idea where the dogs came from, whats in their lines as far as diseases etc. does she know if they are related to each other because that could open up a can of worms if she doesn't know their pedigrees. she could wind up with 8 ill puppies. it is hard to find the right homes for a gsd. they can be a very difficult breed to live with if you have no idea about the breed. trying to find good permanent homes for them will be hard. because of the way the breed has been overbred most people thinking of buying one will be asking alot of questions about their history that your friend doesn;t seem like she would be able to answer. and the people who buy them without caring about any of that stuff will not be buying them for the right reasons and most likely at least 2/3 of them will find their way into a shelter and 3/4 of those will be euthanized because gsd rescue won't have the room to take them all in. i am sure they are wonderful dogs, as most of the german lines are better and more true to the breed then the american lines are. but without knowing their history she is better off just having them spayed and neutered. sorry if she doesn't like my advice. but i have grown up with gsd's my whole life and i have seen what irresponsible breeding has done to this wonderful breed. you can find gsd's anywhere. but you cannot find GOOD ones everywhere.
