Re: Which breeder to choose

Yes, I understand, it is not going to be sitting on the couch half the day like some people. I think I am going to go with lebenshunger, I talked to the guy emailed humans he always replied with great answers. I'm going to see the parents tomarro and will try to get a pic that I can post up

If the mothers pregnit, how would she react in front of me

Re: Which breeder to choose

After looking at the Websites I would personally contact Brownhill Shepherds. They look to be American showline, so they MAY be a little more laid back and what you're looking for. OFA's are there, titled, and the breeder has been doing it for a long time.

I agree that it'll need more than a walk or frisbee. You'll have to mentally work your dog as well.

The longevity in the Brownhill dogs is also nothing to sneeze at!

Re: Which breeder to choose

in your case and what your looking for, I'd also suggest the Brownhill dogs,,while they may be to angulated for "me", I've met quite a few, and a friend of mine also adopted one from them, their temperaments were good, they aren't "off the wall", but weren't couch potatoes either.

She shows alot of her dogs in obedience, and OFA's.

You need to know what you want to live with and allow the breeder to choose a puppy appropriate for your lifestyle.

Did you end up getting a Lebenshunger? I know this is years later, but I am interested as well. Thanks!

Some are also NOT "cuddlers".


yeah im the only one out there in the snow and rain while my dog is happy as **** playing ball or something, and i neither of mine have been cuddlers
