Thanks for the quick suggestions; I will absolutely check those places out.
I should have clarified: I am looking for a puppy, not a mature dog.
Does anyone have any feedback about my idea of going for a working-line breed? (My dad is an experienced dog owner, but has no plans to train for a formal event like agility or shuntzhund(.
How about the breeders I posted?
And JakodaCD OA, thank you for the kind words.
