If the breeders you are looking for are close to you, ask to come and visit.
Super, thanks, gsdsar. I had thought I would have to go with an American line - glad I have more options.

A good breeder (most good breeders) will usually be able to match you with the right dog.
If they don't have one that fits your needs or lifestyle, they may be able to recommend someone else.
Thanks Kat! I definitely have some preferences for color but was afraid that it could across as being too picky. You've given me more confident to be straight up in what I'm looking for in a pet. Appreciate the help!
