Questions & Answers
German Shepherd puppies will vary in price from breeder to breeder based on experience, pedigree, and other factors. For example, white German Shepherd puppies for sale, black German Shepherd puppies for sale, long haired German Shepherd puppies for sale and Sable German Shepherd puppies for sale may affect pricing. Our MatchMaker process ensures you’ll be connected with breeders and puppies who suit you perfectly—including budget.
When you work with one of the breeders in our network, you’ll have the option of picking your German Shepherd puppy up in person or having your pooch shipped to the nearest major airport (within the lower 48 states). Don’t worry—dogs fly in the cabin, not stowed away with the luggage!
We receive applications daily from companies and breeders who desire to join our network, but we admit fewer than 10%. Uptown strictly vets prospective breeders based on skill, animal care, health, legal requirements and much more—head on over to our Breeder Pledge for all of the details.
We take it for granted that the puppy we buy from the average breeder will be healthy and raised with love, but the fact is that many breeders see their dogs as stacks of cash, not animals. Our mission is simple—screen and unite the best breeders in the country, and make it a breeze to connect these breeders with loving families just like yours.
Puppy mills are where countless sick, ill-tempered German Shepherd puppies come from. Mills are wretched places where dogs are treated like machines, forced to produce puppy litters without rest, and kept in squalid conditions that would make your stomach turn. Mill dogs cost their owners an average of $5k in added vet bills, and have a much lower life expectancy.
