Realistic Review

I purchased a male GSD puppy from Bill in 2020. Sire was Halvar and Dame was Waronna. This puppy was the smartest and most confident GSD puppy I have only owned. Unfortunately, My dog died at 6 months no fault of Bills. The only negative was at her passing at 6 months, I had yet to receive my papers on her. Bill said he was delayed due to COVID, who knows. Yes, you could call it a puppy mill. Yes, the puppies smell and are not pampered. But he has good genetics and good dogs.

User's recommendation: Trust but verify.

Beautiful GSD for 7 years died of cancer

We purchased a GSD and she was beautiful, healthy and happy...we had 7 wonderful years with her...and then the unexpected...Hemangiosarcoma! One day she was fine the next very lethargic, took her to vet, stomach filling with blood due to ruptured tumor on her spleen...emergency surgery to remove bleeding tumor...we were in the process of scheduling an appointment with oncology and she got lethargic again, we called the hospital and they said get her in to them now...she was having internal bleeding again and her stomach was filling with blood, they could not open her up again because they did not know where the bleeding was coming from and if we waited too long her stomach would press on her diaphragm so we had no choice but to put her out of her misery, her heart rate was up and her breathing strained...so two weeks from first diagnosis she was gone! Has anyone had a cancer experience with there GSD from Fleischerheim? Robert in Boston, MASS

Well Said... I hate that that happened to you, 7 years old is WAY to young for that...

and normally you might put it up to coincidence but since I have been screwed in a very similar Way by Bill... it adds up with all these complaints as well as personal experience that there's a pattern of dishonesty and that the man is only about money and that's why He lost me as a return buyer.

I'm very sorry for your loss. A wise old man told me that grieving for an animal since they're not supposed to live forever anyway is showing your love, so he told me when I lost a dog to replace it immediately so that I could transfer that love and give it to the new puppy,so I hope you find a great dog :-)

We just had the same tumor on spleen suddenly take our truly remarkable 6 year old male. Vet said it’s more common than one thinks for GSDs.

We are absolutely heartbroken but do not blame Bill.

We would in fact like to get a pup from the same breeding. I don’t know if Bill offers a discount or not in these unfortunate circumstances.

I had purchased an eight week old puppy from Bill and had to put her to sleep at the young age of 8, because she had Degenerative Myelopathy (DM). Bill stated that if I purchased another puppy, he would discount the next pup.

This year I purchased another puppy (9 months old) and have had medical issues from the start.

She came to me with a urinary tract infection, a bacterial intestinal infection, and a fungus on one of her hint legs. The UTI has cleared up, but the intestine and fungus infection persist.

lost a beautiful member of our family to cancer

"Best Dogs" I've had the Honor and Pleasure of owning

I have purchased several dogs from Bill Fleischer over the years. I keep going back because he breeds the "best". The temperaments are always wonderful and so very smart. They always "complete" our family. We always feel so secure owning a GSD. I have sent several customers to Bill and they have always been very happy with their dogs. People stop me and ask where I got my dog whenever we go out. If you're looking for a strong, smart, beautiful dog with high intelligence and a joy for all of your family I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Bill and his beautiful dogs. If you're like me you'll be back again and again.
