Puppies & Dogs Currently Available
So, You are Looking to Own a German Shepherd ?
Puppies and Dogs Available - SEE BELOW for details and contacts...
The GSDCV has provided a list of Breeders who currently have puppies available.
We recommend that you read this article, and gather as much information as possible, BEFORE you start looking at puppies ....Before you go any further you should consider the following: BUYING A GERMAN SHEPHERD PUPPY?
Some Breeders advertise that they are “a member of the German Shepherd Dog Club of Victoria Inc.” This DOES NOT mean that the Breeder follows the German Shepherd Dog Council of Australia (GSDCA) Breed Improvement Schemes and the GSDCV Code of Ethics.
THE GSDCV RECOMMENDS THAT YOU PURCHASE YOUR GERMAN SHEPHERD PUPPY ONLY FROM A BREEDER WHO ADHERES TO THE STRICT GSDCA BREED IMPROVEMENT SCHEMES AND THE GSDCV CODE OF ETHICS. These are puppies that you will find listed below.
Breeding animals should have the following: An ‘A’ stamp for Hip dysplasia which indicates that the animal has passed the GSDCA Hip Dysplasia Scheme and is suitable to be bred from and a ‘Z’ stamp for Elbow dysplasia which means that the animal has passed the GSDCA Elbow Dysplasia Scheme and is suitable to be bred from. Also Breed Survey Class 1 or Class 2 which means that they have been presented before a panel of experts that have ascertained and documented that the animals are suitable anatomically to be bred from and have passed a temperament test and a gun test which is their reaction to loud noises.
The Breeder should be able to show you documents that verify that the parents have successfully passed these schemes. IF THE BREEDER DOES NOT FOLLOW THESE GUIDELINES YOU NEED TO ASK “WHY NOT” ?
AFTER ALL, THEY WERE PUT IN PLACE TO IMPROVE THE HEALTH, COMFORMATION AND TEMPERAMENT OF THE GERMAN SHEPHERD DOG
1. THE GERMAN SHEPHERD IS A LARGE, ACTIVE, WORKING DOG – NOT A LAP DOG
As such he has an active mind, which must be stimulated. You must be prepared to provide your German Shepherd with a daily walk, playtime and obedience training so he can become a reliable canine citizen and well adjusted family member. Of course the exercise will be good for you too!
2. IF YOU WANT A GERMAN SHEPHERD AS A GUARD DOG – THIS BREED IS NOT FOR YOU
We recommend you buy a burglar alarm! Whilst the German Shepherd is naturally protective he does not cope well being confined and isolated without socialisation and as has already been stated requires mental stimulation. Failure to understand this can lead to behavioural problems.
3. HAVE YOU GOT ADEQUATE FACILITIES FOR YOUR GERMAN SHEPHERD?
You will need a secure, safe and fully fenced yard with adequate shelter from all the elements and access to fresh clean water. Your yard must be “escape proof” as the law prohibits roaming dogs. Bailing your dog out of the pound can be costly, assuming you are lucky enough to find him there if he goes missing!
4. CAN YOU AFFORD A LARGE DOG?
Costs can run into many thousands over the course of your dog’s life. These may include, in addition to the purchase price, possible vet bills, feeding, Council registration, Membership fees (i.e. the German Shepherd Dog Club of Victoria and Dogs Victoria), micro-chipping etc.
5. ARE YOU PREPARED FOR A 10-12 YEAR COMMITMENT?
This is the average life span of the German Shepherd. Are you prepared to accept this long term responsibility to care for your dog for the duration of his/her life? Think about it.
6. SO YOU STILL WANT TO OWN A GERMAN SHEPHERD?
You are a committed, responsible and active person ready to make a german shepherd an integral part of your family.
7. NOW! – WHERE DO YOU BUY YOUR GERMAN SHEPHERD PUPPY?
Through the German Shepherd Dog Club of Victoria, Puppy Listing Service.
8. WHY? - A puppy that is purchased through the GSDCV Puppy Listing service comes from a breeder who is a member of the GSDCV, and has complied with all of the Breed Improvement Schemes and Breeding Guidelines relating to breeding and rearing of their puppies. This will provide a greater assurance that you are buying a quality puppy that will have less chance of suffering from the hereditary diseases that may occur in the German Shepherd Dog.
- Both the Sire and Dam must have been successfully Breed Surveyed and have passed both the Hip and Elbow dysplasia schemes
- All puppies come with a Dogs Victoria (VCA) Registered Pedigree – providing proof of breeding and parentage.
- The price of puppies is very similar to that from a Pet Shop, but they cannot provide any of the above.

Sire: *Hatto v Huhnegrab [Imp Gmy] AZ BS Cl 1
Dam: *Brieanin Mon Zeitta A Z BS Cl 1
Num Males: 4
Num Females: 2
Date of Birth: December 9, 2014
Zietta, whose father was Australian Champion Kwint vom Juerikstall, has six beautiful pups to Hatto, a recent import from Germany. Zietta is a very pretty girl with a wonderfully calm, confident nature, who just loves people and is very affectionate. Hatto has an impeccable temperament, is very outgoing and of course so handsome with a beautiful coat.
Whilst health, good looks and excellent conformation are paramount, temperament and character are of primary importance too. I breed for strong outgoing stable character. I have never bred a shy, anxious or highly strung puppy. We may have some longcoats in this litter.
The puppies come with a full pedigree, and all other relevant documentation.
