Default Showlines Breeders in Midwest (IL, WI, IN, MI, MO) [thread closed due to age]

In doing my research thus far (and there's been a lot of it!) I think I'm looking more along the "showlines," end.

I want one who is a little more calm and laid back. I want a GSD for a companion. To me, that means taking him/her out everyday on walks, runs, hikes, adventures. I will absolutely be enrolling the dog in basic obedience classes, and plan to continue to do obedience with him/her. I want an intelligent, well-socialized dog and am willing to do the work for that.

Can anyone recommend good breeders in the Midwest for this? I guess it sounds like "American Show Lines" is what I want... but I'm not certain.

I appreciate your input.

Default Showlines Breeders in Midwest (IL, WI, IN, MI, MO)

I just posted this in the "Choosing a Puppy" section" but felt it was more appropriate here.

Are you really set on a pup. Today I just posted two dogs in Bowling Green, KY that are in need of Rescue, both of the dogs are very nice looking.

Transport can be arranged....

If you want American Showlines then look at German Shepherd Dog Club of America website for breeders in your area. For German Showlines I would suggest Mittlewest .

I'm gonna suggest just getting a good working line instead of American show line. You don't have to get the most high drive dog in the litter, but I think you will do better as far as balance, predictability, and all around good family dog. Or, definitely if you want show line, look on the German side. I'm not trying to start a debate on German vs American obviously, but as someone who does American show and the German sport side of things, that's just my opinion, albeit not expert by any means.
