To some, this screening process may seem intrusive, but please know this is only for the benefit of the puppy and the potential buyer. As a responsible breeder, it is my duty to screen potential buyers to ensure that the puppies that I have worked so hard to breed and raise will enter into a home where they are loved and cared for.
You should also be aware of the positive and negative characteristics of the "German Shepherd Breed" They are not for everyone. A sound German Shepherd makes an excellent companion. An unsound German Shepherd is a disaster waiting to happen. In addition, they are strong in body, spirit, and mind. They need much attention, love and firm guidance as they grow. I don't want my puppies to end up in a rescue or shelter.
