my female will be 2 years old on January 1, 2020 and I will be having her tested to see if I can get her OFA certified and testing to see if she has a good DM as well.
so my question is I guess is there anyone here that lives in my area that has German lines in there Shepherds? as im looking for a male to breed her with?

gsdsteve and any others who wish to go this route let's not.
The topic is who lives near with a stud that has German lines.
If you have a stud why not say so and the REQUIREMENTS that you impose to breed to him.
Teach don't tear down.

Teach don't tear down. Don't make it personal to the OP that would be the kind and polite thing to do.
We here in the USA I would think that 70% of litters bred are without the SV titles. So breeding without titles is common not a requirement. Let them know how it is better to have titles.
We don't criticize for misspellings again not polite and against the TOS

I would suggest to the OP that he go to a local USCA (or other organisation) sport club to see what German lines there are in the area, and ask LOTS of questions about what makes a good GSD, a breeding-worthy GSD. Perspective is everything.

I honestly don't think steve's question was either rude or critical.
it was just a question from an experienced GSD person and could be a very valuable teaching opportunity to anyone wanting to learn.
I would never make any kind of recommendation to anyone unless I knew their dog was at a minimum health certified and was being bred for some purpose past more over population.
had to edit, but I think steve, apple and koots all presented very valid "teaching" moments.
