Hi! I've been lurking for a bit and this is my first post. I'm completely enamored with GSDs and hope to get one within the next 6 months. My family had a WGSD during my teenage years and thus began my spiral into complete obsession
Any recommendations for a breeder in Missouri? I am willing to drive a bit if needed.
Background info: I'm 23 years old in St. Louis and moving apartments soon -- currently looking for a good place to raise a GSD. I work full time and run regularly. I'd like to get a younger dog (under a year) but am concerned about apartment living and being gone 9 hours a day M-F. It seems like a showline might be the best option for that but I'm open. Colorwise, black and red or tan, then white. Flexible with hair length.
Ideally, this dog would be for companionship, but it would also provide me a level of security since I will live alone in the city. Future sport or Schutzhund is a possibility.
After solo research, Huerta Hof, Vertrauen, and Mittelwest seem good, but I'm definitely open to others. Price is a factor, though.
Any recommendations or advice?
