I am slowly becoming discouraged in finding a breeder and my puppy. The more folks I speak with, the more books I read and the more information I gather the more confused and less confident I become that I can make a sound choice. From what I have gathered it is highly suggested that I visit the breeder to meet the dogs and their homes, however if the breeder I like best lives several states away then how do I proceed if I can't afford the money or the time to travel. I want a working line puppy, so that I can Schutzhund train as hobby, not for sports competitions. I don't need a top of the line pup, however I need a pup with superior temperament and drive to be my companion and protector. I want to make my dream of becoming a GSD owner reality, perhaps someone can take me under their wing and assist me? Thank you and have a nice day.
