I can recommend Chris and Gail Smith in Wauconda, IL - Chimanes German Shepherds. They breed AKC showlines and my first GSDs were from them. They have nice, even temperaments!! And, they are RESPONSIBLE breeders and sometimes have older dogs available (returned for whatever reasons). They will be 100% honest with you!!
Here's my gang from them -
