I'm new to the forums and currently in my research stage before actually buying my GSD pup.
I live in the North Dallas area (that's in Texas if you didn't know
) and I'm not quite familiar with any breeders in the area.
I've done some google searches to find someone but apart from what their website says, of course I won't know anything about them so I have a couple questions for you guys:
1) Does anyone know any good breeders that you can recommend in my general area (I say no further than 50 mile radius)?
2) What should I look for when I go look at puppies in regards to the facilities of the breeder (what are the red and green flags that I need to look for)?
3) I'm pretty familiar as to what to look for as far as temperament goes for a puppy, but what are the physical things I need to look for in the puppy (will I be given time able to take the puppy to the vet of my choice for an physical inspection)?
4) What is considered "standard" when it comes to guarantees by the breeder?
4.5) Are contracts written to insure that these guarantees are fulfilled?
Thanks in advance for all the help guys.
