It would help for you to narrow down which line you are interested in, then contact the breeders involved in those lines, else you'll be inundated with many, many different breeders with very different types of dogs.
Have you delved into the differences between; West German Showline, American Showline and Working lines yet?
Once you've decided that then you can come here and look up or ask about specific breeders who are producing the type of dog you want.
