So I live in the CA Bay area and am looking for a pet gsd (no competition) to add to the family.
Right now its just my wife and I, a cat and a gsd/rottie mix.
I've tried to do some reading on different lines of GSD's and the breeders in my area.
So at this point I'm looking at these two breeders who I know will give you very different dogs
German Shepherd Dog, True Haus Kennels
Covy Tucker Hill German Shepherd Breeders - Home
I really like how responsive James @ truehas has been and I like the idea of a working line GSD having better hips (correct me if I'm wrong)
As far as Covy-tuckerhill, they have been responsive enough and have pups available now ..my only reservation is the hips in show line dogs
My questions are:
If all I want is a healthy pet..which breeder should I choose?
If this dog won't compete in anything (other than maybe for fun later) is getting a working line a bad idea?
