Jean-Francois: How much is a pure breed German Shepherd puppy worth without papers but whose parents has papers?
The guy trying to sell it for $ 300 without papers, but says its parents have papers. I'm guessing it's a rip-off.

Without legit kennel club papers itself, there's no proof the pup is purebred.
So yes, I'd say max $ 100
Answer by Janella
way too much for an unpapered puppy. i'm also guessing mom and dad don't really have papers either, because papers come to puppies with papered parents.
Answer by JTP
Actually that is a great price! Actually I would even say that's pretty cheap, especially since its a German Shepherd.

Answer by SuperGirl
It doesn't matter if the parents have papers. Parents with papers should have puppies that have papers as well. It should be no more than $ 150 without papers.
Answer by Inri
Ok first of all ask the guy to show you the parents papers.If he does and puppies don’t have papers that just means that he did not register the litter.Now if he gives you the dog with no papers and parents in fact do have papers than i think that is a very good price considering that it’s a German Shepherd.BUT a dog with no papers should not be bought for more than 250$ at most even if parents have papers.But if he proves parents do have papers i’d say go for it and buy the puppy.

I found my female on the side of the road out by Fort Bragg in North Carolina. She is our rescue dog. I got blood test done that show she is a pure bred german shepherd, but there is no way of knowing whether she was registered or not. We are going to breed her with one of my friends pure bred german shepherd males. I was thinking of selling the puppies for around 300, which is about 1,500 dollars cheaper than what they are selling registered puppies for in this area.

Answer by Leigh
A German Shepherd without papers is 100% guaranteed to have been bred by someone who is NOT a responsible breeder. With all the hip problems in this breed, to purchase one from any but the best breeders is asking for huge vet bills and lots of heartache. Don’t do it.
Buy from a breeder with PROOF of health testing and PROOF of good hips, hearts, and eyes on the parents.
