bratt: Even though I live in California, I'm not really familiar with the breeders in this state. My GSD was adopted and I think he is from a back yard breeder. I was lucky, as he is both adorable and is a great companion. However, I know someone who got an Adler Stein dog and was extremely happy with the protective capabilities of that dog.
Another owner I know went with Grunenfeld in San Diego. She wanted more of a companion for the kids, and was also extremely happy with her dog. The German Shepherd Rescues, both southern CA and northern CA, are also known to adopt out some really gorgeous animals.
