Help finding reputable breeder
by mudrun on 10 May 2012 - 23:23
I am looking for a red and black puppy. Primarily for a pet. I am leaning toward the German lines. I like the way they look and like they try to preserve what a GSD is suppose to act like. I am new to this so I am slightly overwhelmed trying to find a reputable breeder. It goes against everything I've known to purchase sight unseen. But I have searched the internet and there doesn't seem to be many breeders near me with what I am looking for. We are near Houston Tx. I have found some breeders but they mainly have the sable looking dogs. I am not looking for a dog for any competition just want a healthy, confident puppy. I don't mind getting a puppy shipped just want to be able to trust the breeder. Any info would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks!

Thank you for your help. I will investigate what your recommendations have available. Does anyone have knowledge of Mittelwest? I like the look of those dogs. Have read negative and positive reviews.

|You should check out Aldamar German Shepherds right outside of Beaumont, TX. I made the drive and it was totally worth it. Ryan is a stand up guy that truly does it for the love of the breed and his kennel produces some incredible puppies. aldamargermanshepherds.com|

|Mudrun I have had two Mittelwest pups in obedience classes and seen one compete in an AKC conformation class. All were very beautiful and even temperament. I was exteremely fond of the one young male who took both group and private obedience classes with me. He was an amazing dog. I have never met the owners of Mittelwest, but they have a good reputation and their website is impressive. I have considered an adult female they owned but just couldnt see the cost for a dog that was out of state sight unseen though her lines, paper work, age and training were what I was looking for. Someday i would like to go up and see their operation.|

|well, Im going to go out on a limb here and say that "sitasmom" is in your area and has the top of the top as far as German S/L goes in the U.S.|
You need to do the research your self and make your own decision, but if you are this close, you are a fail if you don't at least check this breeder out.
ps and edit to add, Shak Williams is also in this area. Small breeder, nice dogs. Strong emphasis on character.
