Learn in this section all about the health of the German Shepherd. If you are looking for a German puppy, it is very important to find a reputable German Shepherd breeder, one who cares about the breed and who has all the kennels tested and licensed for various genetic issues prior to breeding. Only if approved specimens are tested and bred will they be brought under control.

We suggest you start your search with the breed clubs. Most clubs have a code of ethics and while it does not guarantee a perfect puppy, it is far better than dealing with breeders who do not know or care about these matters.
