Hi everyone,

Can anyone help me/guide me finding good European Breeders of Working line/DDR german Shepherds (im from Europe by the way)? If not a breeder at least someone with experience and with contacts to good breeders. Im not looking for famous breeders or overhyped ones just someone i can trust, go there, see the puppies and be as much confident as possible im in the right place. If it helps im looking for a dog mainly for protection (house/family) since i live in a small farm. Im used to herding dogs. Not for sport or too much hyper. Also health is paramount (ED/HD/DM free). I´ve looked into some German Breeders, some breed in the SV others not, im not quite sure if this a bad or acceptable sign.

Thank you
Miguel

Grafental / Ludwigseck

Look them up on FB and message them. They're wonderful people. I got a male from them last year and I'll be getting a female in a week or two.

Yes ! Claudia is wonderful and will select exactly what you are asking for . I have had several and still have her dogs ! They have always passed hip, elbows and always have been DM clear .

I still can't believe how people keep falling for the DDR thing. There has been no DDR for decades and the descendants of the early, good DDR dogs share very little in common with the early dogs except some similarity in structure and low prey drive. Personally, I think many of the early DDR dogs were overhyped to begin with.

Thank you. I will get in touch with her.
Does anyone knows of these kennels/breeders (a small search i made): Vom AltenburgerLand/Rudel; Vom Anhalter Hof; Von Der Bosebrucke; Von Lord Fandor; Vom Kabuschsee; Von den Grauen Monstab; vom Deutschen Rosenhof; Vom Deichgrafen. Some are less known i believe. Then there are the well known Haus Iris, Parchimer Land,...

I would apreciate more comments or recommendations. I mentioned DDR dogs because they seem more in tune what im looking for in a dog, but i do not mean it as to bee 100% or something like that. Just in line with what im looking for in a dog. I already own a mix of Western working line and show line (more of the former) and despite beeing a formidable companion and capable worker they are to sporty/hyperactive.

Apple, one cannot denie that the old east lines, be it DDR or Czech/slovak produce a different type of dog than west/sport lines, especially in balance of drives and on/off switch, we had the discussion this week with some people about difference in kennel behaviour and ability to be not worked for two weeks versus nowadays lines dogs that freak out if you dont let them work for a few days, so especially to the pet and PP people I totally understand the desire for old line/type dogs

I think there is a difference in a hyperactive dog and a dog with high drives.
