No more than the money you have put into them...Without OFA's, health certifications, & papers maybe 50.00.
Please rethink breeding...There are 1000's of GSD's in shelters & rescue who need homes...Many of them will be put down for lack of homes...Leave breeding to the people who are actually trying to better the breed.
Read this...Substitute GSD for Lab...It's all the same sadly.

It depends on how much health testing both dogs will have done prior to the breeding. The minimum should be OFA certified hips and elbows and eye clearance by a certified veterinary opthalmologist. If you are planning on breeding them without any health clearances they won't be worth any more than any of the millions of puppies sitting in the shelters waiting for new homes, whether mutts or purebreds. Please, do not breed these dogs UNLESS all health testing is done and they are evaluated by a reputable breeder as to their breeding quality. Otherwise, you are just condemning more shelter dogs to a sure death.

Without papers you will be luck to get 50-75 each. It will cost you more than that for vet bills and shots.

Please rethink breeding...there can be alot of complications if you dont know what you are doing.

ALSO, there are 100's of GSD's in shelters & rescue who are put down evey day because they cant find homes... Why would YOU want ot add to these numbers.

Yes , without papers you would barely get your money back. You have a popular breed and there are many breeders out there that offer papers. Unless you are able to find people that just want a pet, you may even have trouble getting rid of them. I wish you the best of luck with whatever you decide to do but please think about the chance that you may end up with a large litle of puppies that you may have trouble getting rid of.

A lady two houses down from me back yard bred her two labs and she had 8 pups some black some yellow and some chocolate and they were all sold for 400 dollars without papers before they were born. One of the pups I train for a lady and she's a really great dog.
I think you can get 400 for the puppies easy.
Before you breed though, do your homework. It is a big project breeding and by the time you get through first shots, worming and other expenses all the money you got for the pups will be gone and then some. Put a year or so into learning all about it. Hook up with a reputable breeder and let them show you first hand all about it. Otherwise, puppies might die, the mother could die, because you will have had no idea what to do or when to do it.
I'm sure both Shepherds are beautiful and would make a great combination, but I'd learn more about it, study it, and really learn what you're in for before you breed.
Good luck and good learning.

Please, no, why would you want to do that?
The issue of dog bites has gotten so bad that our insurance company calls every year to ask the same questions, (Pool, Trampoline, Smoke & fire system, Dogs - what breed?)
With the German Shepherds being the 'most likely to bite dog in the USA', they are becoming a financial nightmare for owners. Insurance companies can't ban a breed, but they can raise or cancel your homeowners insurance.
In short you want to bring GSD puppies into the world when they are becoming less desirable as pets. Without papers which show a bloodline of even tempered dogs, you won't get good money for the dogs at all. Factor in the cost of pre and post natal care, puppies care for 9-10 weeks and you will spend more than you get for the puppies.
