Choosing a Good Breeder - German Shepherd Rescue of Central Colorado

came across this checklist and thought it was extremely detailed. It includes "red flags" as well as "caution - ask more questions" items

Good link, but they need to update their info in respect to breeders accepting credit cards.

Accepting credit cards facilitates the transaction, and in today's word you can buy a CC scanner for an iPhone or Android device from Starbucks of all places, pay a ~3% fee, and conduct the transaction.

We as a nation are trending away from a physical monetary society, and IMHO, the single aspect that a breeder accepts CC wouldn't make me run on that single thing alone.

@motoracer51 thank you for the response...that's another issue I am fighting: do I ever really want to breed? Same days its a yes and some days it's a no hence why I haven't rushed out and done so. As stupid as this sounds, I'm leaning towards my mother in laws male because of where he came from, his sire. His sire was my first experience with a GSD and he set the bar high. Even if I never do breed, keeping him around in a great environment with the ability to work or play or whatever would be ok by me. I say that because he is essentially the "dog nobody wanted so my mother in law kept him" ...she feeds him well and yeah he gets pets every now and then, but I think I could better his life. That's where my head is at now...I think her male would be great for a therapy dog and canine good citizen....I appreciate your input.

Hopefully not paywalled: A Field Guide to Ethical Breeders - Whole Dog Journal Article

Nice article in the latest WDJ about how to find a good breeder.

edit: oh, and there's a picture of Blackthorn puppies on page 3! That's really cool.

Has anyone had any experience or know anything about the website Arizona German Shepherd Breeders? We have been looking for a healthy quality GSD for a year with no luck. Currently in Tucson AZ. Any help advise would be greatly appreciated.
