I really appreciate everybody's response, I personally am new to Purebred German shepherds. I live in Muskegon, Michigan (West side of the state). If anybody knows I any reputable Places to find a German Shepherd, I would love to hear about them. I am more than willing to rescue a dog, Just need to find the right one. =)
I live in Grand Rapids and have a good friend near Kalamazoo that is doing German Shepherd rescue. She is getting TEN new dogs in this week! They will all be available for adoption shortly (pending any medical care they need and some behavior evaluation). If you're open to rescue, check them out!
