if yr that lost you will prolly get so much info on the forums as there are so many good breeders around you will prolly just get more lost.
yr needs are relatively simple so why not just start looking in yr local area, go to shows, visit every breeder look at their dogs and how well they are cared for etc.
all that really matters in yr case is verifiable health, and breeder ethics. don't get sucked into a puppy-farm dog.
once you narrowed it down a bit post again asking about specific breeders/matings/litters you are interested in.
have you considered a rescue or a proven healthy young dog that may just not be good enough for winning big shows etc, could get a bargain.
yr question is very broad imo.
