Oh how adorable. I am planning to buy German Shepherd Puppies too and I am wondering if they are dangerous or could get jealous too because we have a 9 month old baby, you know just to be safe. I love german sheperds and I know they are very smart. I hope to visit the animal shelter and adopt one. big grin

Ok..I know this is a necro post..but guest, I have to reply.
PLEASE..do tons of research before you get a gsd. They are the best dogs in the world, but they are NOT for everyone. They need firm, fair, consistent leaders. They need a job to do & tons of exercise. Or they will find ways to show their displeasure. You can not be wishy-washy. They take a long time to mature, & will test you every chance they get.
With a new child, you have a lot on your plate already. You may want to wait until your baby is a bit more grown before you add the responsibility of a gsd.

Like Squ'mey said, getting a German Shepherd is not a decision to be made lightly, especially when you have a human baby. Puppies and babies are both huge time commitments. And yes, a GSD could hurt your baby, especially unintentionally when it's a big clumsy puppy.

The site you linked to is not an animal shelter, or even a GSD resuce, it's a breeder. There's nothing wrong with buying from a reputable breeder who breeds for healthy dogs with correct temperaments (which isn't to say the one you linked is necessarily reputable), but it's not the same as adopting from a shelter. If you want to get a dog right away, an temperament tested adult from a rescue might be a better option than a puppy.

Please do a lot more research first. If you do decide to buy a puppy I would be looking at other breeders. The one you linked raises all kinds of alarms and their sales contract is scary.
As Onyx said there are lots of nice dogs sitting in rescues.

Sorry to sorta necro-post, but based on what I just read here, NO you should NOT get a GSD.
